Description of the school

This very large first school is situated close to the centre of Whitley Bay. Pupils come predominantly from White British families; there is a small minority of pupils who speak English as their second language, mainly from Bangladeshi families. Socio-economic conditions in the locality are broadly average but pupils come from a much wider area. The pupil population is fairly stable, although a few pupils attend school for the limited time they are staying in the town. The percentage of pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities is low. The school has a settled staff and is currently over-subscribed; it moved into a new building in 2004. It operates wraparound child care provision. Key for inspection grades Grade 1 Outstanding Grade 2 Good Grade 3 Satisfactory Grade 4 Inadequate
