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 kept the successful focus of the school upon its motto of ‘Caring, sharing and learning together with God’. Pupils are given good opportunities to learn about the beliefs and behaviours of the Christian faith, as well as to understand the views and values of others. You have continued to make sure that pupils benefit from a broad and well-considered range of learning in classrooms, breakfast club, after-school clubs and through school trips. This is because you and staff are ambitious for pupils to develop the many skills and abilities they need for their life in modern Britain. Pupils increasingly achieve well and staff and leaders are quick to celebrate pupils’ learning and increased self-belief and self-control. The last inspection identified that governors needed to be well trained and give more informed challenge and support to the school. This has been achieved. Members of the governing body know the school well and use their valuable skills and expertise to good effect to support the school. They undertake training regularly and they now ask challenging questions of leaders about a wide range of the school’s work. At the last inspection inspectors asked leaders to make sure all teaching reflects the best practice found in the school. Over time this has been achieved. Since the last inspection, the deputy headteacher is new to her post and a number of new teachers and teaching assistants have joined the school. Support for new staff is well planned and makes a positive difference to their teaching skills. Leaders are assisting new staff further to meet the needs of the most able pupils in some classes. In addition, you are making sure that further training is given to leaders and to the newly established staff team in the Reception class to further improve teaching of the youngest children. Another recommendation at the previous inspection was for the school to develop the skills of middle leaders in checking the work of staff. Middle leaders are now particularly successful in coordinating reviews of their subject and identifying clearly how the school can improve. Safeguarding is effective. The leadership team has ensured that all safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose and records are detailed and of high quality. Governors maintain careful oversight of the school’s safeguarding work. The work of the school liaison officer brings much additional benefit in providing early help to families. The school plays a full part in referring concerns and linking with other professionals to review pupil and family needs. Because leaders make sure staff are well trained and up to date, staff are knowledgeable about issues that affect children, such as neglect and sexual exploitation. Staff know how to record and refer any concerns they may have about the welfare of pupils or adults. Messages about safe behaviour are covered well through regular information on the school website for pupils and their parents. Because of good information and regular learning at school about internet use, pupils have a clear awareness of how to stay safe while online. Inspection findings The school remains good because the previous successes of leadership, teaching and achievement have been sustained while many new staff members have joined the team. For example, developing pupils’ ability to be emotionally settled and ready to learn continues to be a key strength of the school. Through clear and well-considered leadership the school has overhauled the teaching and assessment of subjects. Tracking of pupils’ learning has been much improved and learning for pupils remains rich and varied. Reviews of the work of the school by leaders are honest and thorough. You recognise that, while pupils’ attainment is improving rapidly, more attention is needed to make sure teaching is always adapted well to the needs of different pupils. This is particularly so for the most able pupils in some classes. Your plans for improvement are detailed yet realistic and reflect the high ambitions you hold for the school. For example, in the Reception class, you have made sure there has been a rapid improvement in the children’s attainment over the past three years. Nevertheless, for the youngest children to achieve even more highly, you recognise that further training is needed for staff and leaders about teaching Reception.
