This school is similar in size to most other primary schools. The large majority of pupils are from a range of minority ethnic heritages and the number of pupils who speak English as an additional language is much higher than is typically found. The proportion of pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals is also high. The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities, including those with a statement, is above average. Their needs relate mainly to behavioural, emotional and social difficulties and dyslexia. The school is part of a federation with a local primary school and the headteacher is the executive headteacher of both schools.
