School Description

The school is much larger than the average-sized two-form-entry primary school, with a Nursery, two Reception classes and an additional class in Year 4. The Nursery provides part-time provision for 52 children. Most children transfer to Reception at the end of their time in the Nursery. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium, the additional government funding, is above average. The funding is used to provide additional support for pupils eligible for free school meals or looked after by the local authority. The proportion of pupils receiving special educational needs support is above average, while the proportion with a statement or an education, health and care plan is high. A high proportion of pupils speak English as an additional language. The school serves an ethnically diverse community and a high proportion of pupils are from minority ethnic groups. The main groups of pupils are White British, pupils of African and Caribbean backgrounds and pupils from any other White background. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress. The school does not meet requirements on the publication of information about safeguarding and admissions on its website. The new policy is available, but governors will not be ratifying it until July 2016. The school runs a breakfast club and after-school club. The school is part of the REAch2 Academy Trust, which is the main governing body with legal and strategic responsibilities for all REAch2 schools. The local governing body focuses on the day-to-day responsibilities.

Catchment information

020 8726 6400

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.
