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

This school is much larger than average and has 16 part-time places in a language facility for nursery-aged children drawn from across the borough, who have speech and language difficulties. The Early Years Foundation Stage comprises a Nursery and four Reception classes. About a third of children who enter Reception have not attended the school’s Nursery. The proportion of pupils eligible for support from the pupil premium (extra money provided for children who are looked after by the local authority, children of service families and pupils known to be eligible for free school meals) is well below the national average. There are no children from service families or in local authority care currently on roll. The proportion of pupils with minority ethnic backgrounds is greater than the national average. The largest groups in the school are those of White British, other White, Indian, Bangladeshi and other Asian heritages. The percentage of pupils who speak English as an additional language is in line with the national average, although few are at an early stage of acquiring the language. Lower than average proportions of pupils are supported at school action and school action plus. The proportion of pupils who are disabled or have a statement of special educational needs is also below the national average. Statements or support at school action plus are mostly for speech, language and communication needs.
