Inspection report: Charford First School, 5–6 December 2017 Page 9 of 11 Information about this inspection Inspectors observed pupils’ learning in 26 lessons. Fourteen of these observations were undertaken jointly with the headteacher and senior leaders. One inspector visited the before-school club. Inspectors observed pupils’ behaviour in lessons and at breaktimes and lunchtimes. They spoke formally with two groups of pupils as well as talking to pupils in lessons and around school. Inspectors listened to pupils read and talked to them about their reading. They also observed learning that took place in small groups outside lessons. Inspectors extensively examined the quality of work in a wide range of pupils’ books, including English, mathematics, topics and science. They listened to pupils read and talked to them about their reading. Discussions were held with the headteacher, deputy headteacher, three assistant headteachers, the SEN coordinator, other leaders and members of staff. The lead inspector met with two governors and the chair of the governing body. A conversation was also held with a representative from the local authority. Inspectors reviewed a wide range of documentation, including the school’s selfevaluation and improvement plans, information about pupils’ progress, records relating to safeguarding, attendance and behaviour, minutes of meetings of the governing body, reviews from external partners and the school’s website. Inspectors took into consideration 120 parents’ responses to Parent View. Inspectors also spoke to parents on the first day of the inspection. Inspectors spoke to staff and took account of their views through 22 responses to Ofsted’s online questionnaire.

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 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 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.
