The school is much smaller than the average primary school. The majority of pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals is well above average as is the proportion of pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities. Pupils are taught in four mixed-age classes. The school has gone through a period of change since the last inspection due to staffing turbulence and a move to a new school building. Following the retirement of the previous headteacher, a seconded headteacher from a nearby primary school took up post in December 2010 and leads and manages the school on a part-time basis. A new deputy headteacher took up post in September 2011. Three of the four class teachers are new to the school since the last inspection, one of whom is employed on a temporary basis covering the maternity leave of the substantive teacher. The school has achieved several awards, including Activemark Gold, Healthy Schools, International School and Respecting Children's Rights-level 1.
