Grazebrook Primary School

Grazebrook Primary is a larger than average-sized school. The proportions of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds and those for whom English is an additional language are well above average. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is smaller than average. Most of this group have moderate learning difficulties. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals is above average. The school has gained many accreditations, including Primary Science Silver Quality Mark, Sing Up Silver, and the Rights Respecting School award. The school runs a daily breakfast club and after school club. The New Wave Teaching Alliance is based at the school. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.

At its last OFSTED inspection (February, 2012) it was reported that the school is an Outstanding school.
