School Description

The school does not meet requirements on the publication of information about pupil premium and the funding for physical education and sports on its website. Abbeymead is much larger than the average-sized primary school. It is a two-form entry primary school with class sizes of around 30. There are three classes in the Reception Year this year. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds is well below the national average. The number of pupils who speak English as an additional language is also well below the national average. The number of pupils supported by the pupil premium is about half the national average. The proportion of pupils receiving support for their special educational needs and/or disabilities is slightly above the national average. The proportion with an education, health and care plan or statement of special educational needs is slightly above the national average. Inspection report: Abbeymead Primary School, 28–29 September 2016 Page 10 of 12 Information about this inspection Pupils’ learning was observed, jointly with the headteacher or deputy headteacher, in 31 lessons or part lessons. A learning walk with middle leaders took place. The inspectors scrutinised the work of pupils in all year groups and spoke with many pupils during lessons about their work. The inspectors listened to pupils from different year groups read and gathered views about their experiences at school. The inspectors held discussions with the headteacher, deputy headteacher, assistant headteacher, other leaders, governors and members of the teaching and support staff. The views of staff were gathered also from Ofsted’s online staff survey. A meeting was held with the representative of the local authority. The inspectors met formally with three different groups of pupils to gather their views on their learning and about school. The inspectors spoke informally with many pupils from all year groups during lessons, at breaktimes and around the school. An inspector undertook a curriculum walk with a group of pupils. The views of parents were taken into consideration, including the responses of 91 parents to Ofsted’s online questionnaire, Parent View, and to 24 comments made as a part of the Parent View survey. Discussions were also held with parents as they dropped off their children and collected them from the school. The inspectors considered documentation, including information on pupils’ attainment and progress, the school’s improvement planning, minutes of governing body meetings, records of the monitoring of teaching and information on the management of teachers’ performance. Procedures for the safeguarding of pupils, including information relating to attendance, behaviour and the exclusion of pupils, were examined.

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the last School Census (released annually in July).

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the last School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.
