The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds is below average, as is the proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is above average. The proportion of pupils supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is also above average. A below-average proportion of pupils are eligible for the pupil premium. This is extra funding from the government for pupils in local authority care and those known to be eligible for free school meals. The school meets the government’s current floor standards for primary schools, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress. The acting headteacher and acting deputy headteacher have been in post since September 2013. A new headteacher has been appointed to start in April 2014.
