New headteacher has recently been appointed to the school. The latest Ofsted inspection states that Melbourne Park Primary and Nursery School has entered a new era with a concerted drive on improving pupils' progress. Early indications are that initiatives started over a year ago are beginning to have effect. Pupils have made satisfactory progress overall, with good progress in some classes since the beginning of this academic year. Standards, while below average, are rising and achievement is getting better because there have been considerable improvements in staffing, teaching quality, leadership and the assessment and tracking of pupils' progress. The school serves an area with high levels of social disadvantage. A high proportion of the pupils, almost a third, is eligible for free school meals. There are significantly more boys than girls. Most pupils come from White British backgrounds, but a small number are from ethnic minority groups, including an equally small number at an early stage of learning English. An above average proportion has learning difficulties or disabilities and the number with a statement of special educational need is high. Attainment on entry to the Nursery is well below that expected for children of this age.
