School Description

The school is larger than most primary schools. It serves a ward with areas that suffer from a high rate of social and economic deprivation. The school draws its pupils from a diverse range of cultural heritages. The largest ethnic groups are Black Caribbean and White British, with equally smaller groups of pupils of African, Bangladeshi, White European, Indian, Portuguese and Vietnamese heritages. Of the pupils, 36.9% are eligible for free school meals, which is above the national average. At 45%, the proportion of pupils speaking a language other than English is well above average, and 29% are at the early or intermediate stage of learning English. The proportion of pupils with a special need or a disability is above average. The school has a small Nursery with 26 children. A Children's Centre opened in June 2006 with the aim of raising achievement in Early Years. The centre is a focal point of the extended school provision. The school achieved a wide range of awards in 2006, notably, the Bronze Eco Award, Basic Skills Quality Mark, Healthy School's Award and Active Mark. A new extension is being built and will open in the spring term, 2008.

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.

Clapham Manor Primary School Reviews


Average Rating:

BY PARENTS, FOR PARENTS

“Highly recommend this school!”
"> I have two children at Clapham Manor and I only wish all children had the opportunity to go to such a fantastic school. The staff are so dedicated to ensuring the children are happy, confident and learning as best they can. One of my children has needed extra support and the staff have always been very caring and willing to adapt whatever they can to make things easier for him. Every day I feel confident that my children are well looked after as well as being well taught. I also love that my children are in such an inclusive and mixed school and that all the differences are acknowledged and celebrated. Bravo!
“Diverse and friendly school”
"> Beautifully maintained school that is well run and my child is really proud of it. The headmaster and teachers are attentive and friendly and do all they can to ensure the children are happy and well looked after. After school activities are varied and the after school playzone runs until 5.50pm which is great for us working parents. Children have many opportunites to visit museums and places related to topics they are covering in class aswell as using local amenities like the Spinney and Clapham Common. Would highly recommend Clapham Manor Primary School.
“Clapham Manor Primary School”
"> Fantastic school. My daughter is in year four and I never had a problem in all this years.Very commitment teachers and a very happy environment.
“Lovely inclusive school”
"> I have 2 children at the school and have had an overwhelmingly positive experience so far. The teachers are committed, friendly and enthusiastic. One of my children needs a lot of support and the SENCO has been fantastic. The school is a diverse welcoming community. Difference is celebrated and respected. Children are treated as individuals and I have been well supported by the school. The after school activities are great and children have access to a range of opportunities. The school has a fully equipped kitchen where all children prepare and cook food , close links with the Spinney on the common - all children visit and take part in natural thinkers sessions. Children make use of the common and local amenities. The school is a welcoming and friendly place.
“Positive experiences”
"> My daughter has been going to clapham manor nursery since she was two. Our experience has been a positive one and I have seen this in terms of her development both socially and academically. She is happy to go to nursery and the staff make it a fun and welcoming environment for all the children. I am kept informed of her daily activities and I am aware of development. Staff ensure parents are informed of their child’s learning and development by holding regular parent consultations and informal chats as and when needed. The environment is fun and inviting and my daughter enjoys learning in a well resourced and varied setting.
“A positive experience so far...”
"> Our son has had a great experience at Clapham Manor Primary. His teachers have all been great. They had a good understanding of what areas he had mastered and where he needed improvement. There are a good choice of after school activities from year 1.
“Good school”
"> This is a good school with a very mixed pupil group. Behaviour problems in my children's classes are dealt with and ironed out. Staff turn over was high a few years ago but not now. The staff are caring and excellent. My children are thriving at this school and very happy.
“Not good enough”
"> I had one child go all the way through this school and have two other children who also attended the school. I have now removed them from the school. In my opinion, the school is slipping and the children who do well, would do well at any primary school. We experienced a high teacher turn over. By the time my daughter was in year 6, there was only one teacher she had who was still there from when she started. Also, extra-curricular activities were poor including little to no sport and no drama. Considering the demographic of the school has become more balanced in the last 10 years, the school should be performing better. Behaviour is a problem which does effect the learning environment of the classroom and the playground. Overall, our experience was very disappointing.
