Description of the school

This is a larger than average sized infant school drawing most of its pupils from a number of local nursery schools. Most pupils’ ability on entry is above average. Some classes are made up of mixed-age groups. The vast majority of pupils are White British with a small number of pupils at an early stage of learning English. There is a lower than average number of children with learning difficulties and disabilities but some of these have complex needs.
