School Description

Pupils study interesting topics, which they say help them learn. For example, pupils learn about Anne Frank in the topic ‘hidden heroism’ and how to debate when learning about the Fire of London. Staff expect all pupils to do their best. Pupils learn reading, writing and mathematics successfully. Most pupils behave well. Pupils pay attention in lessons and follow instructions promptly. This is a nurturing school, and pupils who need help to make the right choice get effective support. Staff respond quickly to any poor behaviour, and bullying is rare. At lunchtimes pupils benefit from a range of activities. They play basketball together and exercise in the outdoor gym. Year 6 sports buddies organise games and ensure that nobody gets left out. Pupils are happy to talk to staff if they are upset, and know they will get help. They feel safe. Leaders arrange lots of new experiences for pupils. Pupils attend clubs, including yoga, cross country and ukulele. They learn to use tools and light a fire safely at forest school. Pupils understand democracy while voting in an election to be ‘headteacher’ for a day. They build confidence performing at a local theatre. Pupils enjoy coming to this school.

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.
