Alverton Nursery and Infant school is smaller than average and serves the local housing estates. Ninety seven per cent of pupils are White British. The proportion of pupils eligible for free school meals is above average as is the number who enter or leave the school at times other than the usual. An above average proportion of pupils have special educational needs and/or disabilities. The school has a speech and language resource for pre-school children with speech and communication problems. The resource serves the wider health authority district. It offers a mix of 10 part-time places and outreach provision. Children with places in the unit have daily specialist support for two terms in Nursery. The before- and after-school clubs and breakfast provision, run by the governing body, were included in this inspection. The children's centre on site was not subject to this inspection. The headteacher and deputy headteacher have a job-share arrangement, supported by an assistant headteacher. There have been several staffing changes in the past two years. One teacher is on a temporary contract in the Early Years Foundation Stage until half term when a newly appointed Early Years Foundation Stage leader is due to start.
