Description of the school

Many of the pupils who attend this larger than average school, come from relatively advantaged backgrounds. They are predominantly of White British heritage. The proportion of pupils who have learning difficulties and/or disabilities is around average. A much lower percentage than normal is entitled to a free school meal. The school is on a split site, with one of the two Reception classes housed in a separate annex three miles from the main school. This class, together with the Reception class in the main building, makes up the school’s Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) provision. The school has the Healthy School Award. There is pre-school provision on both sites managed by a private provider, which did not form part of this inspection.
