Robin Hood Primary School is located on a Local Authority housing estate in the north of Nottingham City. The school is in an area of high deprivation, with the number of children eligible for Free School Meals being 2. 5 times national average. The majority of our pupils come into the school nursery, at 3 years old, well below the levels expected of pupils of their age nationally.
