About Us

West Hove is a larger than average Infant School with 700 pupils across two sites. The large majority of pupils are from white British backgrounds although the school is serving an increasing diverse community and most classes now have around 7 different languages spoken. The proportion of pupils who are entitled to pupil premium is lower than the national average. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported through school action plus is higher than the national average. The school has a very good reputation within the local community and is oversubscribed being able to fill each place three times over.

The Ofsted Inspection in 20O8 graded the original school as ‘outstanding’. Due to the demand for places we extended our provision onto a second site making the school an eight form of entry. Our most recent inspection in 2013 graded the
schools again as ‘outstanding’ in all areas. We are never complacent and always strive to improve in any aspect of teaching and learning to ensure that our pupils achieve exceptionally well.
