School Description

Victoria Park is a much larger-than-average sized primary school serving an area of high deprivation. Almost all pupils are from minority ethnic backgrounds of which the largest proportion is of Pakistani origin. Over 65% of pupils speak English as an additional language and include over 40 different languages. The proportion of pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities is broadly average. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals is higher than that found nationally. The number of pupils joining or leaving the school at other than the usual times is well above average. Many of those arriving speak no English or at an early stage of learning English. The school provides a breakfast club and there is a children’s centre on the same site. The school has Healthy Schools status and the Activemark award.
