The school is larger than most other primary schools. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals is below average. The proportion with special educational needs and/or disabilities is also below average. Most pupils are White British, with a very small proportion from minority-ethnic backgrounds. During the period since its last inspection, the school has experienced significant staffing turbulence, relating to teachers and to support staff. The staffing is not yet fully stable and the headteacher, the assistant headteacher, a class teacher and a member of the support staff are currently on long-term leave of absence. A new deputy headteacher was appointed in January 2011 and he has now taken on the role of acting headteacher. In September 2011, the school entered into an informal partnership with a nearby Roman Catholic primary school. The partnership is monitored collaboratively by the governing bodies of both schools, with advice and support from the local authority. The headteacher of the partner school is currently acting as consultant headteacher for the school. Since 2008, the school has held International Baccalaureate accreditation and this has enabled it to provide the Primary Years Programme in all year groups. The school has the `Sing Up' Silver Award, the School Travel Plan Award and the International School Award (at intermediate level). The school provides a breakfast club each day during term time. An extensive programme of building refurbishments and extensions has taken place during the period since the school's last inspection.
