What the school says...
We are a very small rural primary school. The children work in two classes - Class 1 for Foundation Stage and KS1 and Class2 for KS2.
Although the shell of our building is Victorian, over the past 8 years we have undergone major building works and now have a brand new infant classroom (2003), junior classrooms on a mezzanine floor (1998)and a hall, offices, kitchen and toilets on the ground floor.
Although the pupil numbers are small we have quite a few members of staff, mainly part-time - the pupil/adult ratio works out at 6 children to each adult. We do not specialise in children with special needs but we do specialise in treating every child as an individual and giving them the help or stimulus they need to fulfil their own potential. ...Read more

Overall school performance (for comparison or review only)
Special Education Needs
Our classes are very small and well staffed. In addition we have a very experienced Special Needs Coordinator (David Boardman) who visits the school three times a week to work with individuals and small groups of children. We have had experience of children with a wide range of disabilities/learning problems/attention problems. Our provision is not just for children at the lower end of the special needs spectrum. Since every child is taught as an individual we are also aware of the needs of the above average pupils and arrange additional sessions for those who are Gifted and Talented.
Interpreting catchment maps
The maps show in colour where the pupils at a school came from*. Red = most pupils to Blue = fewest.
Where the map is not coloured we have no record in the previous three years of any pupils being admitted from that location based on the options chosen.
For help and explanation of our catchment maps see: Catchment maps explained
If there are more applicants to a school than it has places for, who gets in is determined by which applicants best fulfil the admissions criteria.
Admissions criteria are often complicated, and may change from year to year. The best source of information is usually the relevant local authority website, but once you have set your sights on a school it is a good idea to ask them how they see things panning out for the year that you are interested in.
Many schools admit children based on distance from the school or a fixed catchment area. For such schools, the cut-off distance will vary from year to year, especially if the school give priority to siblings, and the pattern will be of a central core with outliers (who will mostly be siblings). Schools that admit on the basis of academic or religious selection will have a much more scattered pattern.
*The coloured areas outlined in black are Census Output Areas. These are made up of a group of neighbouring postcodes, which accounts for their odd shapes. These provide an indication, but not a precise map, of the school’s catchment: always refer to local authority and school websites for precise information.
The 'hotter' the colour the more children have been admitted.
