Description of the school

This is a large primary school. It has a Nursery, where younger children in the EYFS attend part time, either mornings or afternoons. Older EYFS children attend full-time in two Reception classes. The proportion of pupils with learning difficulties and disabilities (LDD) is above average. The majority of pupils are of White British origin, but there is an above average proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups, with a wide range of heritages. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is greater than in most schools, but relatively few are at early stages of learning English. There is a breakfast club that takes place on the school site as well as an after-school club, which are not managed by the governing body. These are reported on separately.
