School Description

This is the school’s first inspection since it joined the Hartismere Family of Schools in May 2016. Responsibility for the school’s performance lies with the Hartismere Family of Schools trust board. The trust board currently acts as the school’s local governing body. The trust has longer-term plans to establish local representation at the school through the establishment of new local governing body. There are currently four schools within the trust. The school is a smaller than average-sized secondary school. The proportion of pupils who receive SEN support is above average. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium or who have an education, health and care plan is average. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is below average. The school does not use alternative education providers. Inspection report: Benjamin Britten Academy of Music and Mathematics, 8–9 May 2019 Page 8 of 10 Information about this inspection Inspectors held meetings with the headmaster, senior leaders, middle leaders, teachers, teaching assistants, members of the governing body and trustees. Inspectors gathered a range of evidence to judge the quality of teaching, learning and assessment. Inspectors observed learning in 42 lessons, or parts of lessons. A wide range of pupils’ workbooks were looked at by inspectors throughout the inspection to assess both the quality of teaching and pupils’ progress over time. Inspectors spoke with pupils informally in class and around the school at break and lunchtimes to seek their views about the school. Inspectors met with three groups of pupils more formally to discuss many aspects of school life. Inspectors observed an assembly and made visits to morning registration sessions. Inspectors scrutinised the school’s website and a range of documents, including assessment information and the school’s own evaluation of its effectiveness. Inspectors also scrutinised leaders’ improvement plans and their records about behaviour, safeguarding and attendance. Inspectors considered the 65 responses and 41 free-text comments made by parents to the Ofsted online questionnaire, Parent View. Inspectors also considered the 70 responses by staff to the Ofsted staff questionnaire.

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.
