School Description

This is an above-average sized primary school with slightly more pupils on roll than when it was previously inspected. The school has gained an inclusion quality mark, as a centre of excellence for inclusion. The early years provision is formed of children in the Nursery and Reception classes. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds is well above average, as is the proportion of those who speak English as an additional language. The proportion of pupils who are disadvantaged and eligible for support through the pupil premium is well above average. The pupil premium is additional government funding to support pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those who are in the care of the local authority. The proportion of pupils with special educational needs and disability is well below average. A higher proportion of pupils than is seen nationally join and leave the school part way through the year. In 2015 a large proportion of these pupils also spoke English as an additional language. In 2015, the school failed to meet the government’s current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics by the end of Year 6. The school forms part of a cluster of nine others within the David Ross Education Trust. A new headteacher joined the school this year from another school within the trust. The school runs a daily breakfast club which is overseen by the local advisory board, formerly known as the governing body. The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website.

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.
