Description of the school

The school is much larger than the average infant school. Over recent years, its population has become increasingly diverse and although the majority of pupils are White British, 10 other ethnic backgrounds are now represented. There is an increasing proportion of pupils with English as an additional language. An above average proportion of pupils have learning difficulties and/or disabilities. In 2005, the school changed from being a first school to an infant school, reducing its roll by 200 pupils. This resulted in staff redeployments and redundancies. Since then, a declining population has caused a falling roll, requiring further staffing changes and creating pressure on the school budget.
