School Description

The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website. The school meets current floor standards. These are the minimum expectations set by the government for pupils’ progress and attainment. There have been a number of leadership changes over the last three years. The school was led by an acting headteacher at the time of the previous inspection. A new substantive headteacher was appointed, and joined the school in September 2014. The current headteacher joined the school as deputy headteacher in September 2015, became acting headteacher in October 2016 and substantive headteacher in April 2017. The long-standing chair of governors left the school in July 2016. The current chair of the governing body took up his post in September 2016. Inspection report: Buckhurst Hill Community Primary School, 3–4 May 2017 Page 9 of 11 Information about this inspection Inspectors gathered a range of information to judge the quality of teaching and learning over time. Inspectors observed parts of 16 lessons, some jointly with the headteacher. Meetings were held with the headteacher, other leaders, a representative of the local authority, a group of pupils and a group of governors. Inspectors looked closely at the work in pupils’ exercise books, listened to them read and talked to them about their work. Inspectors spoke to parents on the playground as they brought their children to school. The views of the 80 parents who responded to Parent View, Ofsted’s online questionnaire, were taken into account. Inspectors took account of 10 responses to Ofsted’s staff survey. Inspectors scrutinised the school’s assessment information, records of leaders’ monitoring of the quality of teaching and learning in the school and a range of other documents.

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.
