School Description

This is a larger-than-average-sized primary school. The school has had a significant period of change in leadership, with three headteachers since March 2012. The headteacher commenced her post in September 2012 and the new deputy in January 2013. The school is to be a nursery and infant school from September 2013, and is also increasing its intake of younger pupils. Year 2 and Year 3 pupils are transferring to local junior schools at the end of term. Children in the Early Years Foundation Stage are taught in a Nursery and in two Reception Year classes. The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs supported at school action is below the national average. The proportion of those supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is above the national average. These pupils have a variety of barriers to learning, which are mostly related to speech, language and communication needs. The proportion of pupils for whom the school receives the pupil premium (extra government funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, children looked after by local authorities and children of service families) is below average. There are currently a small number of children who are looked after by local authorities and a small number of children of service families at the school. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups is above average. The proportion of those pupils for whom English is an additional language is above average. At the time of the inspection, pupils with 29 different languages attended the school. There is a breakfast club on the school site. It is managed by the governing body and therefore formed part of the inspection.

BY PARENTS, FOR PARENTS

“Amazing”
AUTHOR:
"> I attended this school from 2014-2015 and it was my favourite place in the world. It has many toys and interactive activities to keep your children entertained. Sadly my favourite teacher, Mr Burt, left yet I still think it is an amazing place. From the play trail to the classrooms; it is very friendly. All the staff are amazingly kind and helpful. I would recommend you send your children here if you want them to have a fun, educated and wonderful experience at school. The school takes bullying, mean comments and unfairness very seriously.
