Inspection report: Alvaston Infant and Nursery School, 10–11 October 2017 Page 9 of 11 Information about this inspection The inspection team comprised two inspectors for two days and one inspector for one day. The inspection was quality assured by one of Her Majesty’s Senior Inspectors for part of both days. During the inspection, teaching and learning were observed in every class, including joint observations undertaken with the headteacher and assistant headteacher. Inspectors observed the teaching of early reading skills and pupils were heard to read. The inspectors talked with pupils about their school and looked at pupils’ books in and out of lessons. A sample of pupils’ books was scrutinised to gain a view of the progress that pupils have made and the impact of the teaching they have received. Inspectors held discussions with the headteacher and members of the school’s senior leadership team, staff members, four representatives of the governing body and a representative from the local authority. Inspectors spoke informally with parents at the start of the school day and considered 61 responses to the Ofsted online parent questionnaire, Parent View. They also considered 13 responses to the staff questionnaire. Inspectors looked at a range of documents including the school’s self-evaluation, improvement and action plans, records of the monitoring of teaching and learning, the most recent information on the achievement and progress of pupils, and information relating to the safeguarding, behaviour and attendance of pupils. Inspectors considered the range and quality of information provided on the school’s website, which meets statutory requirements.

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 annual School Census.

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 school catchment area guide for more information on 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 annual 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.
