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. Following the last inspection there was a period of considerable staffing turbulence, including among senior leaders. During this time pupils’ outcomes plummeted to well below the national average at key stage 2, and pupils’ behaviour deteriorated, with rates of fixed-term exclusion almost double the national average. In 2016, the school became part of the Hope Academy Trust and in September 2017 an interim headteacher and an experienced Year 6 teacher were appointed. They began the process of improvement, and in 2018 pupils’ outcomes at the end of key stage 2 improved markedly to be above the national average in combined reading, writing and mathematics. Raised expectations for acceptable levels of pupils’ behaviour were also established. Following your appointment in September 2018, you have built on these firm foundations most admirably. Your determination to turn around the fortunes of the school and your enthusiasm and commitment to the pupils and staff of Burton Green shine through everything you do. You have inherited an equally committed deputy headteacher, who shares your determination to provide the very best education for the pupils in your charge. As you eloquently said, ‘I want all children to have the same starting point and to love their school and to love learning.’ Your strong vision for excellence continues to transform the school. Governors and the trust are immensely supportive of you, and value greatly all that you have achieved so far. They applaud your leadership and the confidence you have instilled in such a short space of time. One of your first actions was to invest heavily in the environment. New furniture and resources, redesigned shared spaces and carpeted corridors and classrooms have provided a welcoming and homely place to be. Calming music plays in classrooms and corridors and has had the desired effect to contribute to reducing any additional stresses for pupils successfully. Such investment has had an enormous impact on pupils’ well-being. Those pupils who I talked to were keen to say how much better things are since you have been the headteacher. Pupils’ sense of pride and belonging is tangible and they are thriving as a result of your leadership. This sense of pride extends to the wider community, including parents, who were equally complimentary about the improvements you have brought. They value greatly the support you and your staff provide, particularly in times of need. Pupils now behave exceptionally well, and they show much respect to adults and to each other. The strong values and explicit and consistently applied behaviour management system are firmly embedded in all year groups. Pupils comply with your high expectations for good manners and respectful behaviour and any serious misdemeanours are handled proportionately. Such is the high regard in which you are held that pupils simply do not want to let you down. As one Year 6 pupil said, ‘I don’t want another red card, ever!’ As a result, exclusion is a last resort and the use of this sanction has reduced dramatically since your appointment. As a visitor to your school, it is difficult to believe that pupils’ behaviour was anything less than exemplary. Your high expectations extend to all aspects of the school’s effectiveness. You invest heavily in providing pupils with a wealth of exciting and engaging experiences to extend pupils’ vocabulary, and enrich the curriculum and bring pupils’ learning alive. For example, at Christmas Year 6 pupils made gifts and cards to give to members of our emergency services, as special people who look after us. Staff share your view. They value greatly the support and guidance you provide. They respond positively to your high expectations and are enthusiastic practitioners. As a result, classrooms are a hive of purposeful activity, with pupils highly engaged and keen to contribute. This is a happy school, where staff morale is high. You use the expertise of trust staff and local authority officers to regularly review the quality of teaching and learning in the school to ensure that you are doing all that you can to build further on pupils’ improved outcomes. As a result, you have an accurate view of the strengths in your school and what more you need to do. You and governors ensure that additional funding is spent on those for whom it is intended, particularly disadvantaged pupils and pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). You are resolute that the higher incidence of persistent absenteeism for disadvantaged pupils will not impact negatively on their achievements. However, we discussed that your pupil premium strategy document is not reflective of this. In its current form, your actions are not linked sharply to the barriers to learning faced by disadvantaged pupils. Safeguarding is effective. The leadership team has ensured that all safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose. Detailed employment checks are completed on anyone wishing to work at the school, to ensure that they are fit to do so. They are recorded on a single, centrally held record. Minor omissions to this record were put right during the inspection. Staff undertake frequent training and receive weekly updates from the designated leader to ensure that they remain vigilant. Staff are clear about the process that they must follow to report any concerns that they may have. Strong relationships enable staff to notice even the slightest changes in pupils’ behaviour and that of the wider family members. Designated staff ensure that any concerns are reported in a timely manner. They readily seek the advice and guidance of fellow professionals to ensure that pupils are safe, but do not shy away from professional challenge if they feel strongly that it is in the child’s interest. A review of child protection records during the inspection shows a detailed chronology is maintained by staff and a high level of support and care is given to pupils and their families in times of need. Inspection findings In 2018, pupils’ outcomes in mathematics at the end of key stage 2 did not improve at the same rate as those of reading and writing. Pupils’ progress was average and no pupils attained the higher standard. I wanted to find out what actions you had taken to improve this. You have established a cohesive and consistent approach to the teaching of mathematics across the school. All lessons are structured to follow the same sequence. All lessons begin with a mental arithmetic starter to improve this aspect of pupils’ mathematical knowledge. Pupils then practise their mathematical fluency to ensure that they have the skills they need to move onto more demanding reasoning and problem-solving tasks. Occasionally, I found that the most able pupils are completing fluency activities, of skills that they have already accomplished, before moving onto more demanding tasks of which they are capable. This slows their progress and prevents more pupils from reaching the higher standard. Leaders’ actions are undoubtedly leading to improving current pupils’ outcomes in mathematics, with pupils achieving more highly than was previously the case. A review of assessment information correlates with pupils’ work in their books. Pupils’ books are very well presented and reflect study of a range of mathematical concepts. However, pupils find it difficult to explain their reasoning and to have a range of skills that they can use to work confidently and systematically to solve more complex problems. At times this leads to unforced errors, and we discussed that this was one of your next steps for improvement.
