Description of the school

This is a small primary school serving a semi-rural community. Pupils’ home circumstances vary but most come from relatively advantaged backgrounds. Very few pupils are eligible for free school meals. Most are from White British heritage. There are no pupils in the early stages of learning to speak English. The proportion of pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities is well below the national average. Children in the Reception year of the EYFS are taught in a class with Year 1 pupils. Each of the school’s other four classes is also made up of two year groups. The school’s awards include the Activemark and Healthy School’s accreditation.
