Ofsted Inspection Rating Outstanding
This inspection rating relates to a predecessor school. When a school, converts to an academy, is taken over or closes and reopens as a new school a formal link is created between the new school and the old school, by the Department for Education. Where the new school has not yet been inspected, we show the inspection history of the predecessor school, as we believe it still has significance.

Description of the school

The school is larger than average. The proportion of pupils entitled to free school meals is below average, although the school serves a typically mixed community. The proportion of pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities is broadly average, although increasing as more pupils travel in from outside the immediate locality. The vast majority of pupils are White British. A very small number are from Asian, Chinese or mixed backgrounds. Only a very few of these pupils are at an early stage of learning English. An independently organised childcare club operates on the site and a Children’s Centre is currently being built adjacent to the school. Over the last two years there has been a high turnover of staff. Key for inspection grades Grade 1 Outstanding Grade 2 Good Grade 3 Satisfactory Grade 4 Inadequate
