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

Broadlands Academy is a smaller than average-sized secondary school. The school converted to become an academy in December 2012 and is sponsored by the Academies Enterprise Trust. The Principal was appointed in January 2013. Most pupils are from White British backgrounds. The number of disabled pupils and pupils with special educational needs is lower than average overall, although the number of pupils who are statemented or have an education, health and care plan is higher than average. The number of disadvantaged pupils eligible for pupil premium funding is higher than average, particularly in the lower years. 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 academy meets the current government floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress. A small number of pupils attend off-site alternative provision at City of Bristol College, City of Bath College, Aspire Academy and the Riverside Youth Project.

OFSTED UPDATE AND Y6 SPRING OPEN EVENING

The Academy was inspected in January 2016 and was judged Good in all categories. All at the Academy are very proud, particularly of the comments regarding students' behaviour, the Academy's rapid improvement and the fact that in the last three years, students have achieved fantastic outcomes which have enabled them to access the next stage of their education or training. 

 

Broadlands is part of the new National Schools Commissioner's 'Race to Outstanding' programme and the Good grading is a stepping stone towards Outstanding. It is also testament to all at the Academy working together as a community to ensure that Keynsham now has two officially graded Good secondary schools.

 

The Academy is hosting a Y6 Spring Open Evening on Thursday 3 March 2016 from 6.30pm to 8.00pm, with the Principal delivering a short presentation at 6.30pm. The Academy welcomes any Y6 students and their parents who have not yet considered Broadlands Academy for September 2016 to come along and view the Academy first hand.
