Description of the school

This large primary school serves a socio-economically mixed community in the city centre.

The majority of pupils are White British: a few pupils are from minority ethnic groups and, of these, a below average proportion are at an early stage of learning English as an additional language. There are fewer pupils eligible for free school meals or with learning difficulties and/or disabilities than is usually found. The school provides for children in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) in two Reception classes.

Since the last inspection there has been a very high turnover of staff. The school has gained the Basic Skills Quality Mark, Artsmark Gold, Bronze Eco Schools Award, Healthy Schools Award, Advanced Inclusion Award and Financial Management Standard in Schools. It is an Investor in Pupils.

Within the school grounds is an externally managed Nursery: Scarcroft Green Nursery. The Scarcroft After School Club is managed by a private provider and meets in the school. The Scarcroft After School Club was subject to a separate inspection.
