This is an average-sized primary school. A smaller percentage of pupils than average come from White British backgrounds. Other pupils come from a wide range of minority ethnic groups. Approximately 30% of the pupils speak English as an additional language, which is above the national average. The percentage of pupils who are known to be eligible for the pupil premium is more than double the national average. In this school, it provides additional funding for pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is a little above average. The percentage of pupils supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is average. The proportion of pupils who join or leave the school part way through their primary school education is higher than average. A very small number of pupils with autism spectrum disorders are taught in a ‘focus’ group, which is soon to close; because of the very small numbers these pupils are not referred to within the report to avoid identifying individuals. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress in English and mathematics. The school is in a period of significant staff turbulence. Currently, only three of the ten classes are taught by permanent, full-time staff who have been in the school for more than four weeks. This term, an acting headteacher has taken on the role from within the staff team, as have two acting deputy headteachers. The Early Years Foundation Stage leader, special educational needs coordinator and safeguarding leader have all been recently appointed.
