This is a larger than average primary school. An overwhelming majority of pupils come from minority ethnic groups, of whom pupils with Pakistani background are by far the largest group. Very few are of White British background. Eighty-five percent of pupils speak English as an additional language and a vast majority of them start school at an early stage of learning to speak English. Punjabi and Urdu are the most common first languages spoken. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals is above average. The proportion of pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities is broadly average. Mostly these needs relate to moderate learning difficulties and to difficulties in speech and communication skills. The school has an Enhanced Resource Service which caters for pupils with learning and physical difficulties and/or disabilities; this provision is managed by the governing body. There is a breakfast club, managed by the governing body, which caters for a small number of pupils. The school holds Artsmark, Activemark in recognition of its work in sport, Basic Skills Quality Mark and Green Flag Eco School awards.
