School Description

The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website. Berry Brow Infant and Nursery School is similar in size to the average-sized primary school. The Nursery class operates part time each morning and the two Reception classes are full time. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is below average. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils supported by pupil premium is a little below the national average. Most pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups has increased over the past three years. Very few of these pupils speak English as an additional language. The school provides childcare at the start of each day. Inspection report: Berry Brow Infant and Nursery School, 7–8 December 2016 Page 8 of 10 Information about this inspection Inspectors visited 10 lessons or parts of lessons, three of which were observed jointly with the headteacher. Inspectors looked at a range of pupils’ work and conducted a detailed scrutiny of written work accompanied by the headteacher. Displays around the school and in classrooms were also examined. Inspectors heard a number of pupils from Years 1 and 2 read. Meetings took place with the headteacher, senior leaders, staff, groups of pupils and the chair and vice-chair of the governing body, and a telephone conversation took place with a representative from the local authority. Inspectors observed playtime and lunchtime. Inspectors looked at a range of documentation, including the school’s assessment and pupils’ progress information and records relating to pupils’ behaviour, attendance and safeguarding. Inspectors took into account 46 responses to the Ofsted online questionnaire (Parent View). They also spoke informally with some parents at the start and end of the school day as well as some parents who attended the Reception concert. Inspectors took into account a small number of letters written to inspectors by parents. The views of staff and pupils were also considered.

Pupil heat map key

01484 225007

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.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.
