Description of the school

This is a larger than average school. The proportion of pupils entitled to free school meals is lower than average. Pupils are from a range of social backgrounds and nearly all are of White British heritage. On entry to the Nursery, children’s development varies from below to above average but overall it is close to that which is typical for children of the same age nationally. Fewer pupils have learning difficulties and/or disabilities than in most schools and the number with statements of special educational need is low. Most pupils live near to the school but a significant minority travel a considerable distance to attend.
