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. Since becoming headteacher in April 2016, you have worked tirelessly and quickly to make improvements to the education and welfare of all pupils. The impact of your leadership is evident in the better outcomes and more rapid progress of pupils currently in your school. Good-quality provision in the early years ensures that most children are ready for the Year 1 curriculum. Year 1 outcomes in the phonics screening check are consistently good. Pupils currently in Year 6 have made good progress since the end of key stage 1 and are well placed to achieve better outcomes when compared to 2016 key stage 2 results. You are extremely well supported by senior leaders who are very ambitious and have high expectations of all staff and pupils. You and your senior leaders have a clear understanding of the school’s strengths and weaknesses, and work very effectively to increase the rates of progress for all pupils. You have not been afraid to tackle any weak performance of teachers and have taken some difficult decisions to be sure that all pupils are getting the very best opportunities at your school. Your clearly articulated vision is shared by all staff, governors and pupils. Your desire to enable all staff to improve the aspirations of the whole school community is strongly evident. Pupils want to do their best and enjoy being identified as ‘Super Star’ learners. After the previous inspection, leaders were asked to improve the outcomes of all pupils in writing. You have rightly focused on improving pupils’ writing by developing teachers’ subject knowledge and ensuring that pupils have many more meaningful opportunities to write for a purpose. Children in Reception have written many of the signs and labels welcoming visitors to their classrooms. During my visit, Year 1 pupils wrote thank-you letters following their exciting visit, the previous day, to a lifeboat station. The teaching of writing has clearly improved and pupils’ progress is accelerating. However, you know that pupils will only increase their rate of progress if they are fully stretched and challenged in lessons, so leaders are providing teachers with effective training and support to achieve this. A significant change since the last inspection has been the role played by governors in monitoring the effectiveness and impact of leaders’ actions. Governors have worked with you to develop a schedule for this monitoring and now have a very clear understanding of how to be effective in carrying out their responsibilities. They have undergone training which they found useful, particularly in helping them to ask the right questions of leaders. They challenge you and other leaders appropriately. By providing their questions ahead of meetings, they ensure that you can provide them with full answers backed up with evidence. Governors are justifiably delighted with your appointment and recognise your achievements in taking the school forward rapidly. Your passion and drive to improve learning for all pupils have inspired staff and governors to make important improvements to raise outcomes for all pupils. Your evaluation of the school’s effectiveness is honest and accurate. For example, you have identified that more work needs to be done to develop the teaching of mathematics, so that pupils make faster progress. Safeguarding is effective. The leadership team has ensured that all safeguarding systems are fit for purpose and records are detailed and of high quality. All staff are expected to read and understand the school’s policies and protocols for keeping pupils safe. Staff follow this guidance meticulously and, if they have any concerns for a pupil’s safety, these are addressed swiftly. A very helpful sheet is provided for visitors which they receive as they sign in. This covers all key points succinctly. Your inclusion leader works actively with families and other agencies to ensure that any safeguarding issues are given the correct priority and attention. Leaders are not afraid to challenge decisions made by external professionals, and make strong representation on behalf of pupils. Governors review safeguarding processes regularly and effectively. They take this responsibility very seriously and are passionate about ensuring the safety and wellbeing of everyone. All governors receive appropriate safeguarding training as part of their induction. Pupils enjoy school, feel safe and know who to go to if they have any concerns. Pupils have a great respect for staff and know that they will listen to them. You have worked hard with pupils to keep them safe and they are very clear about how they should stay safe online. They also understand what constitutes bullying and say that it is rare in school. You are fully aware that you need to continue to work with the wider community on developing their knowledge and understanding of both of these areas. Inspection findings During this inspection I looked at: the steps leaders are taking to reverse the three-year coasting trend; how aspirational staff are for all pupils and what evidence there is of pupils working at the higher standard in reading and in mathematics; what impact teaching is having on the progress made by pupils in key stage 1; and the impact of leaders’ actions on reducing the persistent absence of pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities. You are rightly focusing on securing consistent high-quality teaching across the school. Working in partnership with the local authority and other schools, you have provided good training for staff to improve the teaching of writing. Pupils are making rapid progress in their writing and the progress made by disadvantaged pupils is improving in relation to other pupils nationally. These improvements mean you are rightly confident that the school will soon no longer be deemed as coasting. You are reflecting on the effectiveness of the recently purchased mathematics scheme. You know that some teachers are over-reliant on the scheme and are not effectively challenging all pupils, including the most able pupils. Where pupils are achieving well in mathematics, teachers have used the scheme flexibly, adapting it and adding appropriate additional tasks to both reinforce and extend learning. This ensures that pupils thoroughly understand the mathematics skills they are employing and so develop their reasoning skills. You and senior leaders have been relentless in challenging and changing the school’s culture of lower aspirations. Teachers are determined that pupils will achieve well. Current data and work in books indicate that pupils are expected to work at the higher standards in most classes. You know where the few remaining relative weaknesses are and have plans to address them. High-quality coaching from your deputy headteachers has made a real difference to the quality of teaching. For example, Year 2 pupils are using secondary sources to research habitats. Their learning is developed through the skilful modelling and questioning of teachers and pupils record their results effectively and share them eloquently. Pupils who read to me were able to use their phonics skills to sound out and read unfamiliar words accurately. They read with expression and talked excitedly about the story. Your support for the teaching of phonics has ensured that a significant number of pupils achieve the phonics standard at the end of Year 1. The quality of teaching, learning and assessment has significantly improved this year. Pupils in Year 2 have made strong progress in reading, writing and mathematics since the start of the year, with an increased number of pupils working at greater depth than in previous years. These improved Year 2 outcomes have been externally checked and judged to be accurate.
