This is a large primary school in an urban area. Virtually all the pupils are from different minority-ethnic backgrounds and speak English as an additional language. The largest groups have Indian or Pakistani heritages, but others come from a variety of different backgrounds, with those of Black African heritage constituting the largest of these. Increasingly, the school is admitting pupils in different age-groups who are newly arrived from overseas and speak little or no English when they start. A good proportion of the latter pupils are of Somali heritage. The proportion of pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities is broadly similar to that in most schools. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals is above average. The school provides for children in the Early Years Foundation Stage in a single integrated unit. This approach is new since the previous inspection. Reception children attend school full-time, and Nursery children attend part-time. There has been considerable disruption to staffing since the school's previous inspection, with a new headteacher starting in May 2011 after a period of temporary leadership. At the time of the inspection, a new deputy headteacher had yet to take up post. An extensive building and renovation programme over the last couple of years is drawing to a close.
