Description of the school

This is a smaller than average primary school in a rural area. The proportion of pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities is lower than that found nationally, although there is a higher than usual percentage of pupils with statements of special educational needs. There are very few pupils from minority ethnic groups or for whom English is an additional language. A daily breakfast club is run in the school hall. All four classes have a mixture of age groups. The Early Years Foundation Stage children are in a class with Year 1 children. A new headteacher joined the school in January 2008.
