Information about this school

The school is much smaller than the average-sized primary school. The proportion of pupils with special educational needs is below average. The proportion of pupils eligible for the pupil premium is below average.

The pupil premium is extra funding to support the education of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, and children who are looked after by the local authority. Soon after the previous inspection, the current headteacher took up his role and there were major changes to the governing body.
