This is larger than the average-sized primary school. Most pupils live in the local community and are of White British heritage. There are no other groups of significant size in the school. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals is below average. The proportion of pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities is high, as is the proportion of pupils with a statement of special educational needs. This is because the school has an allocated resource unit for pupils whose needs relate to speech, language and communication learning difficulties. The school provides day care for children from birth to three years of age and after-school care for its pupils through the Arts Play Club. These are run by private organisations and were not part of this inspection. The school has achieved a number of nationally recognised awards, including Healthy Schools status, the Green Flag Award for International Eco-Schools, and the International School Award. Children in the Early Years Foundation Stage are taught in the Nursery and in the Reception class. The school converted to academy status on 1 November 2011.
