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

You have maintained the good quality of education identified at the previous inspection. You and your senior leadership team have successfully built on the strengths confirmed when the school was previously inspected. You have addressed the areas for improvement identified at the previous inspection, and have also improved other aspects of the school’s work. Children in the early years and pupils in key stage 1 are keen to learn. They enjoy their lessons and the other activities which the school provides, such as the various clubs and visits. Pupils feel very safe and well cared for. A large number of parents responded to the school’s own recent survey of their views and were very appreciative of all that the school provides for their children. Typical comments were: ‘I couldn’t be happier with the school and the progress my child is making’, and ‘Both my children have excelled and grown while attending Clarendon. I cannot thank the staff enough.’ I had the same response from parents with whom I spoke during the inspection. Pupils throughout the school behave well. Teachers have benefited from good opportunities for professional training. They also get good support from other staff and ensure that pupils make good progress. You have succeeded in improving achievement in spite of some challenging circumstances. A much larger proportion of pupils either join or leave Clarendon Infants’ other than at the usual times. Many of the pupils, including those who have special educational needs and/or disabilities, need additional support to catch up with the rate of progress of other pupils. Several pupils who join the school after Reception have needs which make them particularly vulnerable. You work tirelessly and effectively to help them settle comfortably into the school and then make progress. Although some of these pupils do not achieve at the same rate as those who stay at Clarendon Infants’ throughout their school career, the great majority of pupils increasingly make good progress. They enjoy the school curriculum, especially the range of topics. The quality of care and support for pupils remains high. The governing body contains both experienced and relatively new members. They support you well in your drive for continued improvement. They also ask searching questions, for example about how you use the additional funding for disadvantaged pupils to ensure they make good progress. Governors are keen to ensure that staff are accountable for progress and that pupils get the best start possible to their school career. Governors play an increasingly active role in checking the strategic direction of the school and holding school leaders to account. Safeguarding is effective. With the support of your governors, you have made sure that pupils’ safety has a high priority in the school. Staff and governors have had recent training in all aspects of keeping children safe. I saw this myself during the inspection when local police visited the school to emphasise to children how they can help themselves to keep safe. Parents are very confident that staff will look after their children. They welcome the fact that the school looks after their children well. You return this trust by making sure that all adults in school undergo the appropriate checks and training and that there is a strong culture of safeguarding in the school. The school liaises well with outside agencies when it needs additional support to help vulnerable pupils. There are appropriate policies and procedures in place to ensure safety. You have ensured that all arrangements are fit for purpose and that records are detailed and are of an appropriately high quality. Inspection findings One of the key lines of enquiry we agreed at the start of the inspection was to check the progress of children in the Nursery and Reception who join the school with levels of skill, knowledge and personal development that are well below what would usually be expected for their age. Your early years leader has driven improvements and ensured good progress for all children in the Nursery and Reception classes. She assesses children’s needs and achievement accurately and has worked successfully to involve parents closely in their children’s learning. Girls, in particular, benefit from good teaching. Some boys make slower progress than the girls both in their personal development and in their language and number skills. You recognise this in your own analysis of early years achievement, and give it an appropriate focus in the school’s improvement plan. As a result, children in the early years are now making good progress. Building on recent successes, more and more children are on track to achieve a good level of development, which will serve them well when they join Year 1.
