Description of the school

This is a large primary school with a nursery, which serves an area of mid-twentieth century housing estates on the southern edge of Bristol. The great majority of pupils come from these estates. Almost all pupils are of White British origin and speak English as their first language. Almost all join the school in the Nursery and stay until they leave in Year 6. A below average number of pupils have free school meals. A broadly average number of pupils have learning difficulties or disabilities. Attainment on entry to the Nursery is broadly average although children’s language and physical coordination skills are often weaker.
