School Description

Bourton Meadow Academy is much larger than the average-sized primary school. The proportion of girls is average but variable across year groups. The proportion of pupils for whom the school receives additional income (the pupil premium) is well below average. This funding provides for looked after children, pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and children of service families. Less than a fifth of the pupils, a lower proportion than that found nationally, are from a range of minority ethnic groups. The remaining, and largest group of pupils, are from White backgrounds. The proportion of pupils learning English as an additional language is below the national average. The proportion of pupils supported by school action is well below average, and the proportion of pupils at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is also well below average. The school does not send any pupils to be educated off site in other institutions. The governing body manages a breakfast club and after-school club. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress. In March 2012, the school converted into an academy school. When last inspected, its predecessor school, Bourton Meadow School, was judged to be outstanding in its overall effectiveness. The academy is a National Support School and works collaboratively with other schools providing training and support. The headteacher is a National Leader of Education. The governors are involved in advising and supporting governing bodies of other schools. The academy is also an accredited School-Centred Initial Teacher Training Provider (SCITT). It is registered to provide 62 places. The training is provided and organised by the academy. Nineteen partnership schools work alongside the academy to provide placements. The SCITT has been inspected separately, and was judged to be outstanding in every area by Ofsted. The academy has recently gained approval to become a Muti-Academy. A bid to open and run a new, one-form entry school in the local town was successful and the new school is due to open in Sept 2014.

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.
