This is a larger than average-sized lower school. It serves a community with relatively advantaged social circumstances and the proportion of pupils who take free school meals is below average. An above average proportion of pupils come from a wide range of ethnic minority backgrounds. An above average proportion do not have English as their first language and eighteen languages other than English are represented in the school. The number of pupils identified with learning difficulties or disabilities is below that found in other schools, but the proportion with a statement of special educational needs is average. Attainment on entry to school is similar to that expected for children of this age. There have been some significant recent changes in leadership, with a new senior leadership team, including headteacher and deputy in the last two years. The school gained accreditation as a Healthy School and has achieved the Active Mark for its provision in physical activity.
