Information about this school

The school is smaller than the average primary school. Most pupils are of White British heritage. The remainder come from a wide variety of backgrounds. The proportion of pupils for whom the school receives the pupil premium (additional government funding for pupils eligible for free school meals, those in care and those with a parent in the armed services) is below the national average. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is below average. The proportion of pupils supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is also below average. The school met the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress in English and mathematics.
