The school is larger than average. Over 80% of the pupils come from a variety of different minority ethnic backgrounds. The largest group within the school are of Pakistani origin. A very high proportion of pupils are learning English other than as their first language, with almost 80 pupils currently at an early stage of learning English. As families are relocated, a relatively high number of pupils leave for other schools partway through their primary education. The proportion of pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities is below average. Children join the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) with skills and capabilities well below those expected for their age.
