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 criteria in which schools use to allocate places in the event that they are oversubscribed can and do vary between schools and over time. These criteria can include distance from the school and sometimes specific catchment areas but can also include, amongst others, priority for siblings, children of a particular faith or specific feeder schools. Living in an area where children have previously attended a school does not guarantee admission to the school in future years. Always check with the school’s own admission authority for the current admission arrangements.

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.

School Description

You and your leadership team have maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. You have a clear vision for improvement, and high expectations of staff and pupils. Staff and governors share your expectations and drive to provide the best education for pupils. Parents are overwhelmingly supportive of what the school does for their children and for them. They appreciate how ambitious you are for their children and feel that their opinions are valued and acted upon. The school is a calm and nurturing environment where staff help pupils to develop well, both academically and personally. This supports pupils’ confidence to learn and promotes high standards of behaviour. At the last inspection, you were asked to improve the teaching of writing at key stage 2. In response, you have ensured that teachers have received effective training and that lessons have a sharp focus on pupils applying their writing skills independently. Consequently, in 2016, pupils’ progress in writing was significantly above the national average at the end of key stage 2. A second area for improvement identified at the last inspection related to addressing pockets of underachievement in key stage 1. Since then, you have focused relentlessly on the quality of teaching and the development of your thematic curriculum as a means to promote opportunities for writing at length. As a result, pupils’ outcomes at the end of key stage 1 are improving overall. In 2016, the proportion of pupils who achieved the expected standard in the key stage 1 national assessments was broadly in line with other schools nationally. Nevertheless, further work is necessary in order to ensure that the most able pupils are challenged to work at greater depth in reading, writing and mathematics by the end Year 2. Leaders and teachers ensure that reading has a high profile across the school. Pupils, including disadvantaged pupils, read fluently and with expression. They enjoy reading and have a range of favourite authors. The new reading room, staffed by the school’s ‘Reading Heroes’, is well used and contributes effectively to promoting pupils’ enjoyment in reading. Behaviour across the school, in and outside lessons, is good. Pupils are welcoming, well-mannered and polite. Their positive attitudes to learning make a good contribution to their progress in the classroom. British values are promoted well. As a result, pupils are prepared well for life in modern Britain. Safeguarding is effective. Leaders and governors have ensured that safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose. The single central record of pre-employment checks meets requirements. Appropriate training ensures that staff have up-to-date knowledge of safeguarding and are vigilant about the potential risks that pupils may face. This includes pupils who may be at risk of female genital mutilation or being drawn into radical or extremist activity. Consequently, there is a clear culture in the school where all staff understand their collective responsibility for safeguarding pupils’ welfare. You work effectively with outside agencies to reduce any potential risk to pupils and to keep them safe. Pupils that I spoke to were unanimously confident that they are safe and well cared for at school. In addition, the vast majority of parents I spoke to during the inspection, as well as the 21 parents who responded to Parent View, Ofsted’s online survey, agreed that their children are safe and happy in school. Inspection findings For my first line of enquiry, I considered the effect of leaders’ work to ensure that the most able pupils at key stage 2 make the best possible progress. Leaders, including governors, have made this a priority in the school improvement plan. As a result, they have restructured leadership responsibilities so as to better monitor pupils’ progress. The most able pupils now benefit from intensive specialised classes for part of the week and extra-curricular work designed to stretch their attainment. A local partnership enables them to work with teachers from a nearby secondary school. The progress I saw in lessons, along with a scrutiny of the most able pupils’ work, confirmed that these initiatives are starting to have an impact. However, you are clear that more work is needed to ensure that teaching is routinely challenging enough for these pupils in every lesson.
