Pupil numbers are rising in this well-above average-sized primary school as it moves to two forms of entry. The majority of pupils are from a wide range of minority ethnic backgrounds. The proportion of pupils speaking English as an additional language is well above average but few are at an early stage of learning English. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for funding through the pupil premium, which is extra money given to schools for looked-after children, pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and children of service families, is well above average. The proportion of pupils with disabilities and special educational needs supported through school action is average. The proportion of pupils supported through school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is above average. The school has experienced a period of considerable staff change over the last year. The headteacher was appointed in September 2012 after two terms in which the school was led by an interim headteacher. The deputy headteacher and assistant headteacher have been appointed in the last 12 months. Children in the Early Years Foundation Stage are taught in a Nursery and two Reception classes. The school does not use alternative provision for its pupils. Privately run before- and after-school clubs use the school premises, although these are inspected separately. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress.
