Description of the school


Pheasey Park Farm Primary School is one of the largest primary schools in the country.  The school is part of the Walsall Metropolitan borough, on the borders of Birmingham and Sandwell. The postal area is Birmingham and people tend to associate the school with the City rather than Walsall.   Although the socio-economic area is near to the national average, the learning culture within the community is not one which has high academic aspirations.  Pupils at Ever 6 FSM is 23.9% (close to national at 25.9%) and increasing.  The number of pupils from minority ethnic groups and with EAL is increasing but remains below national. The proportion of pupils with SEN EHCP is below national and SEN Support is above national and increasing.  The deprivation index is below national average.
