School Description

The school is a smaller-than-average secondary school. The majority of pupils are of White British heritage, with a proportion of minority ethnic groups above the national average. The proportion of pupils with SEND is above the national average. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils is above the national average. Currently, a small number of pupils (four) attend alternative provision at Haybrook College, the local authority pupil referral unit. The school is part of Schelwood Trust. Inspection report: Beechwood School, 25–26 June 2019 Page 9 of 11 Information about this inspection Inspectors observed learning in 45 lessons, including a number of short visits to tutor groups. The majority of lessons were visited jointly with senior leaders. During visits to classes, inspectors looked at pupils’ work in books. Inspectors examined a selection of pupils’ work from pupils in key stages 3, 4 and 5. Meetings were held with the headteacher and staff, including newly qualified teachers and academic senior and middle leaders. Inspectors took account of 49 responses to Ofsted’s staff questionnaire. Inspectors met a representative group of trustees from the trust and governors from the local governing body. Inspectors took account of 23 responses from parents to Ofsted’s online survey, Parent View, as well as written comments submitted by 13 parents. The lead inspector spoke to the local authority school improvement partner. Pupils’ views were gathered from meetings with pupils from Years 7, 8, 9, 10, and the sixth form. Informal conversations with pupils took place around the school and at different times in the school day. Inspectors scrutinised a wide range of school documentation. This included leaders’ evaluations of the school’s performance, the school development plan, information about standards and pupils’ progress, information on the school’s website, records of pupils’ attendance, governors’ minutes, and a range of policies and information, including those relating to safeguarding.

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.
