Description of the school

This is a large first school. Most pupils are from White British backgrounds. The number at an early stage of acquiring English as an additional language is very low. The percentage of pupils eligible for free school meals is well below average; so too is the number with learning difficulties and/or disabilities. The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) provision includes a Community Powers funded nursery managed by the governors and three Reception Classes.
