Description of the school

This school is located in an area of some economic disadvantage, and an above average proportion of pupils are entitled to free school meals.

A lower percentage of pupils have learning difficulties and/or disabilities than the national average. The majority of these needs are social and communication difficulties. Almost all pupils are from White British backgrounds and speak English as their first language.

Children enter the Nursery class of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) in the September of the school year in which they are four. A breakfast and after school club for pupils, which is not managed by the governing body, takes place in the school daily. The school has rec...ently received an Artsmark, an Activemark for physical education and sport, the Basic Skills Quality Mark, a Healthy Schools Award, the Inclusive Schools Award and the Eco-Schools Award.
