Priory Lower School is a small primary school situated in the centre of Bedford. The very large majority of pupils are from minority ethnic groups and the predominant group is Bangladeshi. The percentage of pupils who speak English as an additional language is well above average and a small minority of pupils are in the early stages of learning English. The percentage of pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities is well above average, but the percentage of pupils with a statement of special educational needs is below average. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals is well above average. Mobility is very high and many pupils join and leave other than at the usual times. The Early Years Foundation Stage provision is in a Nursery unit and a Reception class. Nine languages are spoken in the Nursery and a very small minority speak English as their first language. The school has achieved the Basic Skills Award, Healthy School Award and the International Schools Award. There is a children's centre adjoining the school site. This provision is not managed by the school's governing body and was not inspected by the team.
