Shaftesbury Junior school is a smaller than average school. The majority of pupils are from minority ethnic backgrounds. This is significantly higher than seen nationally, as is the percentage of pupils for whom English is an additional language. The number of pupils who have learning difficulties and/or disabilities is in line with the national picture but there are fewer pupils who have a statement of educational need. The proportion of pupils eligible to receive a free school meal is higher than that seen nationally. The number of pupils who join or leave the school partway through the year is significantly higher than the picture in the rest of the country. A number of these pupils arrive with little or no English. There is a breakfast club and after school club on the school site. This is managed by the governing body of the school. Since the last inspection there has been a high turnover of teaching staff. The school has achieved the national Healthy School Award and the Financial Management Standard in Schools.
