School Description

This school is much larger than the average-sized primary school. The proportion of pupils with an EHC plan is below average but increasing. Almost all pupils are from minority ethnic groups, with the vast majority speaking English as an additional language. This is a much higher proportion than average. A very significant number of pupils join part way through each school year, and a substantial number also leave the school before the end of Year 2. Typically, around one-fifth of the school population changes every two years, and those who enter often have no prior experience of education and also speak English as an additional language. An above average proportion of pupils are eligible for the pupil premium. The school operates a breakfast club for pupils and a range of curriculum enrichment activities after school. Inspection report: Birkby Infant and Nursery School, 20–21 November 2018 Page 10 of 12 Information about this inspection The focus of the inspection was to affirm the standards identified at the previous Section 8 inspection and to find out how well children, pupils and the school were progressing. Inspectors held a variety of meetings with the headteacher, senior managers and other staff. Inspectors observed teaching across the school in 29 sessions. Inspectors considered a range of evidence, including the school improvement plan, leaders’ self-evaluation and other documentation. The lead inspector met with four members of the governing body and spoke with the representative of the local authority and external partners. He considered the 17 responses to Ofsted’s online survey, Parent View, and inspectors spoke with 11 parents. The lead inspector also took account of the 32 responses to Ofsted’s online 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.
