This is a very large primary school that continues to grow. Pupils come from a very wide range of backgrounds, most prominently White British, Black African and Black Caribbean. Most pupils speak English as an additional language and many are at the early stages of learning the language, particularly when they join the school. The proportion of pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities is higher than average. Many of these have moderate learning difficulties or behavioural and emotional difficulties. Similarly, there are many more pupils with a statement of special educational needs than are found in most schools. Most of these are in the school's unit for deaf children which currently has 17 pupils on roll. Many more pupils join or leave during the year than is the case in most schools including some asylum seekers or refugees. At the inspection of September 2008 the school was found to be inadequate and given a notice to improve. Following interim arrangements, a new headteacher took up his post at the beginning of this term. There have also been substantial changes to the governing body, including a new chair.
