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

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. You, your deputy headteacher and the knowledgeable governing body have a clear vision for what you are trying to achieve for pupils. You have established a strong culture of school improvement. Your monitoring of provision is robust and accurate. It is successfully identifying what the school is doing well and what still needs improving. Weaknesses found in the last inspection have been tackled well. For example, teachers are well supported in the school through well-planned and responsive training. Effective monitoring is used to identify strengths in teaching and identify how teaching can be supported to be even better. Where teaching needs improving, rapid and effective support is put in place to ensure that teaching improves. Leaders hold teachers to account for improving pupils’ standards. The school motto, ‘desire to learn, aspire to achieve’, is evident throughout the school. Pupils enjoy coming to school because you have created a happy, supportive, secure and stimulating learning environment. The ‘Brunswick Project’ is a school-devised initiative that is responsive to the needs of its pupils. After the pupils were asking about current affairs and issues they saw on the news, the school responded by building British values into the heart of its ethos. This was fittingly summed up by a parent who described the school as ‘an inclusive environment which maximises learning opportunities. The school celebrates success regularly and is ensuring that our children are socially aware of the wider world. The handling of the Manchester bombing was sensitive, compassionate and reassuring.’ You and your staff have worked consistently to ensure that work is well matched to pupils’ needs. My visits to lessons confirmed that pupils are set interesting and challenging work at the right level of difficulty. Adults carefully check pupils’ learning and are quick to support those who need additional help or need to move on to the next activity. Pupils who have special educational needs (SEN) and or/disabilities are well supported by adults to ensure that they make good progress in lessons. However, we agreed that teachers need to make sure that the most able are given even more challenge, to ensure that they achieve the higher standards of which they are capable. Another area for improvement was to develop the role of middle leaders so they are fully involved in developing good practice in teaching across the school. Middle leaders are now a school strength. They are very astute and have a secure understanding of the strengths and areas for improvement in their subjects. They are passionate about their own subjects but also have a vision about how their subject fits in with wholeschool improvement. Middle leaders use their monitoring and evaluation of provision and pupils’ outcomes very effectively to improve the quality of teaching. Children in Nursery make an excellent start to school. They are keen to learn and, as a result, can focus on activities for a sustained amount of time. The areas of provision are inspirational and engaging. They are well thought out to ensure that all children make good progress. Adults are highly effective in using questioning to develop the children’s thinking further. However, this high quality of provision is not reflected in Reception classes. When we observed learning in Reception, we found that children, especially boys, were not as engaged in tasks and some were moving around the area trying to find something to do. You agreed that the strong practice seen in Nursery needs to be developed into the Reception Year to ensure that children make stronger progress. You and your leadership team are highly effective in developing and sustaining pupils’ well-being. This is beginning to have a positive impact on improving attendance, although you acknowledge there is still more to do. The proportion of pupils who are regularly absent is above average. The attendance of disadvantaged pupils is improving, with a significant decline in disadvantaged pupils who are persistently absent. Some pupils do not arrive at school on time and this is slowing their progress. Pupils say that ‘When children are late to class, it disrupts our learning.’ Safeguarding is effective. The leadership team has ensured that all safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose. You and your staff take safeguarding extremely seriously. Everyone understands their individual responsibility to make sure that every child is protected from harm. All staff receive regular training in how to keep children safe. As a result, staff are knowledgeable about safeguarding policies and procedures and are vigilant. Staff check robustly for any sign that a pupil could be at risk. Pupils know that they must treat others in the school kindly and courteously. They report that bullying is very rare, but that any incidents of poor behaviour or unkindness are effectively dealt with. They told me that they feel safe in school.
