Description of the school

This small school serves its parish and the surrounding area. Its pupils come from a range of backgrounds, although general socio-economic indicators are above average. The proportion entitled to free school meals is very low. A very small number of pupils are from minority ethnic backgrounds, with none at the early stages of learning English. The proportion of pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities is smaller than found in most other schools. Pupils in Key Stage 2 are currently taught in three mixed-age classes, based on age bands. The school building is small and numbers on roll are scheduled to rise in the coming school year. The school holds the Inclusion Quality Mark, the Healthy Schools Award, the Investors in Children Effective Early Learning Quality Mark for the Foundation Stage, the Artsmark (Silver) and the Activemark.
