School Description

Christchurch is a smaller-than-average sized primary school with Early Years Foundation Stage provision. The large majority of pupils come from minority ethnic heritages with the largest proportion being from a Bangladeshi background. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is well above average. A larger than average proportion of pupils is known to be eligible for support through the pupil premium (additional funding provided by the government). The proportion of pupils supported at school action is below the national average but the proportions of pupils who are supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs are above average. Most of these pupils have speech, language and communication, and behavioural, emotional and social difficulties. The school entered into a federation partnership with another local primary school three years ago. And the governing bodies of both schools are actively discussing the future of this federation. There is an executive headteacher for the two partner schools. Since the previous inspection, a large number of teachers have left the school and new ones have joined. The London Borough of Tower Hamlet and London Diocesan Board for schools have put in place an interim executive board that makes up the governance of the school. The school has Healthy School status. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectation for pupils’ attainment and progress.

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 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.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.

Christ Church CofE School Reviews

Average Rating:


“Amazing village school in the city!”
"> It's like a village school in the city. Award winning adventure playground and forest school for all ages. It's a small school so I feel it's very safe and friendly. My children are really happy here. They focus on creativity as well as academic achievement and the school trips are excellent.
“Hidden gem of a school!”
"> An amazing school - more like a village school than an inner city primary. It has a secret garden playground with growing areas, an adventure playground made from tree trunks, a grassed area with tunnels plus a separate ball pitch. The school is excelling academically and is also very creative - music, art and forest school for all ages. Our children are extremely happy - and because it's a small school it's very safe and friendly.
