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 criteria in which schools use to allocate places in the event that they are oversubscribed can and do vary between schools and over time. These criteria can include distance from the school and sometimes specific catchment areas but can also include, amongst others, priority for siblings, children of a particular faith or specific feeder schools. Living in an area where children have previously attended a school does not guarantee admission to the school in future years. Always check with the school’s own admission authority for the current admission arrangements.

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.

School Description

Blackpool Gateway Primary School opened in September 2013 before converting to academy status in September 2015. The school has been part of the Fylde Coast Academy Trust (FCAT) since September 2016. Blackpool Gateway Academy is one of nine academies in the multi-academy trust. The school is larger than the average-sized primary school and is growing each year as it receives a new intake in Reception. The school currently provides education for 324 pupils from Nursery to Year 4. The school’s Nursery provision began in January 2018. The proportion of pupils who are eligible for free school meals is much higher than the national average. One third of the pupils registered at the school receive support for SEN and/or disabilities, which is well above the national average. The school has a lower than average proportion of pupils who have a statement of Inspection report: Blackpool Gateway Academy, 26–28 June 2018 Page 9 of 12 special educational needs or an education, health and care plan. The large majority of pupils are from a White British background. A significant number of pupils joined the school in the last academic year. In previous years, mobility figures have been broadly average or lower.
