Grangetown Primary School, which serves the Grangetown area of Cardiff, caters for pupils aged 4 to 11-years-old. At present there are 409 pupils on roll and numbers have increased since the last inspection. The school is organised into 14 classes, two for each year group from Reception to Year 6. There are 16.6 full-time teachers, six ethnic minority traveller achievement service support staff and 13.5 teaching assistants. The catchment area is considered to be economically disadvantaged. Baseline indicators show that attainment on entry to the school is below average. Thirty-five per cent of families are in receipt of free school meals; this is higher than local and national averages. Approximately 33% of pupils are identified as having additional learning needs and six have a statement. Ninety-six per cent of pupils are from minority ethnic backgrounds with 95% speaking English as a second or additional language (92% of these are at A, B or C stage of language acquisition). This is higher than local or national averages. At the end of key stage 2 in 2010, 98% of pupils were from a minority ethnic background and only 66% of these had been in the school since Year 2. There are no looked after children on roll and there are no pupils who use Welsh as a first language. The school was last inspected in May 2006 with a re-inspection visit in September 2007. Since the last full inspection there have been changes in the management structure of the school. The headteacher has been in post since September 2008.
