Description of the school

This is an average sized school situated in a village community. It is a popular school that is frequently oversubscribed. Most pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion eligible for free school meals is below average while the proportion with learning difficulties and/or disabilities is a little below the national average. Children are admitted to the Reception class from a number of pre-school settings. Having been listed for its success in the 2003 annual report of Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Schools, the school is now included on the Ofsted database of similarly successful schools. It has been involved in a national Sustaining Success Programme to network the local authority’s most effective schools. Recently, it has been awarded an ActiveMark for its work on promoting healthy lifestyles and an Eco Schools Silver award for raising awareness of environmental responsibility.
