Description of the school

This is a larger than average primary school, where the majority of pupils are of White British origin, with few pupils from minority ethnic groups. Very few pupils are at the early stages of learning English. Currently, the majority of pupils live outside the admission zone. Although the number of pupils eligible for free school meals is below the national average, in recent years socio-economic features have matched national averages. The number of pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities is below the national average. The school has both Nursery and Reception in its Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) provision.
