Ofsted Inspection Rating Outstanding
This inspection rating relates to a predecessor school. When a school, converts to an academy, is taken over or closes and reopens as a new school a formal link is created between the new school and the old school, by the Department for Education. Where the new school has not yet been inspected, we show the inspection history of the predecessor school, as we believe it still has significance.

Description of the school

This is a larger than average school. It serves an extended urban area. An average proportion of the pupils is entitled to free school meals. The proportion from minority ethnic backgrounds is below average and very few use English as an additional language. The proportion of pupils who have learning difficulties and/or physical disabilities is broadly average. Most of these pupils have behavioural, social and emotional difficulties or speech and language difficulties. The EYFS is provided through the 130-place Nursery and two Reception classes. The attainment of children when they start in the Nursery varies, but overall it is often below that expected nationally. The school holds the Basic Skills Quality Mark and the Healthy Schools Award. The school is also accredited with the Derbyshire Personalised Learning Award. There is a privately managed before and after-school club off site. The headteacher has been in post since the start of this term but was acting as headteacher prior to her substantive appointment.
