Ofsted Inspection Rating Outstanding
This inspection rating relates to a predecessor school. When a school, converts to an academy, is taken over or closes and reopens as a new school a formal link is created between the new school and the old school, by the Department for Education. Where the new school has not yet been inspected, we show the inspection history of the predecessor school, as we believe it still has significance.

Description of the school

This is an average sized school. Almost all pupils are White British. The proportion known to be eligible for free school meals is much lower than the national average. Similarly, a very small proportion of pupils has learning difficulties and/or disabilities. The school has achieved the local authority and national Healthy School awards, as well as the Inclusion Quality Mark and Activemark. The headteacher was appointed to the post on the day prior to the inspection, having led the school as acting headteacher since June 2008. There is a pre-school and before- and after-school club on the school site. These provisions were inspected separately and receive a separately written report.
