Shackleton Lower is an average sized school. The proportion of pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those who speak English as an additional language is much higher than average. Fewer of the pupils have learning difficulties or disabilities than nationally, but the numbers with statements of special educational needs is above average.

Many children transfer to the school from the local nursery, starting in the spring term, but children also come from a range of other settings. Attainment on entry to the Reception class covers the full range, but overall is well below the expected levels for children's ages.

The headteacher was appointed in September 2006 and there have also been a number of recent changes to teaching staff. Prior to that time the school had an acting head teacher for one term. The school was also federated to another local school for five terms and one of the assistant headteachers was seconded there for two terms. The school has recently gained a Quality Mark, Artsmark Gold, Investors in People and Healthy School accreditations.
