Description of the school

Boutcher Primary is a smaller than average school situated in a very culturally and socially mixed area of London. A significant proportion of pupils receive free school meals. Most pupils come from either a White British or Black African heritage, although the school educates pupils from many different cultural backgrounds. Half of the pupils speak English as an additional language, with a considerable number at an early stage of learning to speak English when they join the school. The school has a similar proportion of pupils with learning difficulties to the national average. Their difficulties mostly relate to speech, language and moderate learning difficulties. The proportion of pupils with a Statement of Special Educational Need is much higher than is usual in most primary schools. These pupils mostly have severe learning difficulties or show autistic spectrum disorders. The school has gained the Healthy School award.
