There are 549 pupils on roll aged 3-11 years including 24 full-time and 60 part-time pupils in the nursery class. The school has 19 classes, including the nursery, nurture class and two additional learning resource centres. The average proportion of pupils for free school meals over the last three years is approximately 26%. This is above the average for Wales of 18%.

Instead, the governing body is required by law to arrange for religious education and collective worship to be inspected separately.
