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 have developed a calm and purposeful atmosphere with a focus on pupils’ well-being and academic achievements in this fully inclusive school. Since your appointment in September 2017, there have been a number of changes in leadership. Governors value your leadership skills, but you acknowledge that your long-term absence during your first year held back some of the initiatives you wished to put in place. However, since April 2018, through a robust school development plan, new strategies are beginning to have a positive impact. For example, a new approach to teaching writing is supporting high standards across the school. The presentation of pupils’ work in books and on displays is improving swiftly. You and your governors spend additional funding effectively so that disadvantaged pupils and those who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities perform well. Pupils told me they enjoy coming to school and that learning is fun. This is aiding good attendance. They spoke positively about the new challenges they can choose to develop their learning. Pupils feel proud when they move from one challenge to a more difficult one. Those who spoke to me say that bullying is not a problem in the school and that there are adults around to discuss any concerns. Most parents who responded to the Ofsted online survey, Parent View, agreed that their child is safe and happy in school and that they would recommend the school to other families.
