School Context

Statistical Information from RAISE online Summary Report 2015

Croyland Primary School is a larger than average primary school with approximately 420 pupils on roll (10/11/15).  It has a greater number of boys on roll than girls. Pupils are taught in single age classes.

There are two classes in each year group.  The school shares a site with a nursery and an Action for Children Center. The school is situated in an area with an identified ‘higher than average level of deprivation’.  Deprivation refers to more than poverty which is related to income; it is a general lack of resources and opportunities in the area. In making this judgement, information is gathered about income, employment, health, education, crime, access to services and living environment.

To date, over one third of pupils are known to be eligible for free school meals which is above the National Average and the number of children whose first language is not English is growing in line with Wellingborough Town. The school has a greater than average number of children with Special Education Needs. This is due to the resource and unit provision that we hold on our site for children with Social, Emotional and Mental Health difficulties. 

This is referred to as a Designated Special Provisions (DSP). Croyland Primary School provides wrap around child care from 7.45am – 6pm; it has a Breakfast, After-School and Holiday Club on site.
