Description of the school

This is a larger than average first school.

It serves a community with favourable social circumstances and the proportion of pupils who take free school meals is below average. The attainment of children starting school is similar to that expected nationally for their age, but there is a general weakness in their communication skills. Most pupils come from a White British background although a range of other ethnic backgrounds and the traveller community are represented in the school.

A very small proportion of pupils are at the early stages of learning English. The number of pupils identified with learning difficulties or disabilities is broadly average, but the proportion with a... statement of special educational needs is above average. The school has provision to support pupils with hearing impairment.

Currently eight pupils are supported full-time and three are supported part-time. Other needs mainly include autism and behavioural/emotional needs. Awards include the Active Mark and Healthy Schools Status, achieved in 2007.
