This larger than average primary school serves an urban area which has high levels of social disadvantage. A much greater proportion of its pupils are eligible for free school meals than is normally the case in other primary schools. The large majority of pupils are of White British heritage. However, in recent years, a small but growing number of migrants and refugees, mainly from Eastern Europe, have joined the school. A number of children are from Traveller families. Nonetheless, most pupils enter the school in the first year of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). The proportion of pupils with learning difficulties/and or disabilities is above average. The school holds a number of awards including the Activemark, the Healthy Schools' Award, and QiSS national recognition for the work it does in study support.
