Ecton Brook Road,
Ecton Brook Primary School,
Ecton Brook is much larger than the average primary school. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals is significantly above average. The percentage of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds is slightly below average, but a slightly above average proportion speak English as an additional language. The overall proportion of pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities is above average, although the proportion with a statement of special educational needs is below average. A high number of pupils either leave or join the school part way through their primary school education. Early Years Foundation Stage provision is made in a Reception class. There is a pre-school nursery on site, which is managed by a private provider. The children's centre is managed by Action for Children. These provisions are inspected and reported upon separately.
The school merged with Bellinge Primary School, which was in special measures and closed in December 2010. Since January 2010 pupils have continued to be taught separately on both sites. The two Head Teachers spend half of the week at each school and the leadership team now comprises two Deputy Head Teachers and an Assistant Head Teacher who work across both sites.
