Information about this school

The school is larger than the average-sized primary school. There is provision for children in the early years in the two Reception classes. These children attend school full time. Most pupils are of White British heritage with others from a wide range of ethnic groups. Very few speak English as an additional language. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is below average. The proportion of pupils supported through the pupil premium is lower than average. This is additional funding provided by the government to support those pupils, in this school, who are known to be eligible for free school meals. The school provides a breakfast club and an after-school club for pupils. The school meets the government’s floor standards that set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress. Leaders and governors are managing a substantial building project to provide additional accommodation in preparation for the expansion of the school. It is to become a three-form entry primary school in September 2015.
