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

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the previous inspection. Since arriving at the school, you have provided determined and confident leadership. You have proficiently dealt with the challenge of mixed-aged classes. There have been some significant staff changes since the last inspection. However, you have united governors and staff to ensure that all work as a team to do the very best for all of the pupils. Parents and staff say that you lead by example and the school community is responding well to the demands you make and standards that you expect. Leaders have embedded the Christian ethos across the school. The values of aspiration, resilience and community, underpinned by the message of love, are evident in the behaviour of the pupils and in the respect they demonstrate towards the staff and each other. You enjoy the confidence of the vast majority of parents. A typical parent’s comment is: ‘The community atmosphere and the strong parental involvement is a testament to the love we all have as parents for the school.’ You have an accurate and realistic understanding of the school’s current performance. Your plans clearly set out what needs to improve further, with specific targets. You have established regular training opportunities for staff, including sessions to develop a better understanding of the new spelling and mathematics schemes of work. Since the previous inspection, school leaders have worked hard to improve important aspects of provision. You and your team are committed to ensuring that pupils have a very positive learning experience. You have introduced a new ‘learning challenge curriculum’. Pupils benefit from interesting and well-planned lessons across a range of subjects. The curriculum is enriched by class visits, visitors to the school and a wide variety of after-school activities. The day of the inspection was World Book Day and it was gratifying to see pupils of all ages celebrating their love of books. Pupils spoke with great appreciation about the forest school provision. One pupil, representing many, said: ‘We like learning in the forest school as it helps us to know more about the world around us and we also learn life skills that will help us when we are adults.’ Pupils are helpful, polite and well-mannered. They listen carefully to adults in class and their attitudes to learning are extremely positive. Pupils enjoy their learning and talk about their desire to do well. Pupils are keen to take on responsibilities and this is exemplified by the effectiveness of the school librarians. Pupils have continued to attain at or above national averages in almost all national assessments. In 2018, the proportion of pupils reaching the higher standard in mathematics dropped below the national average. Consequently, you are changing the way that mathematics is taught to ensure that pupils have more opportunities to use their reasoning skills and to acquire deeper learning that sticks. Governors work well with the school leadership team to support and challenge on aspects of improvement. They are well organised through an embedded system of meetings. Each governor shadows the lead of a subject or school aspect. Governors keep their knowledge and skills up to date through regular training. They have taken a determined approach to the successful building of the new school. Governors work closely with parents and initiate an annual questionnaire to determine their satisfaction. There is a high rate of parental satisfaction with the school. However, a number of parents would like communication between the school and home to be more efficient. Governors partner with two local churches and have established mental health support and counselling for children and parents at the school. Safeguarding is effective School leaders have ensured that there is a strong culture of safeguarding across the school. The safety of the pupils is given a high priority, with policies and procedures being followed effectively. You have made sure that the arrangements for the care and protection of pupils are thorough and effective. Records about concerns, referrals and support for pupils are well organised and carefully monitored. The governor with responsibility for child protection is committed to maintaining the focus on keeping children safe. Leaders ensure that staff and governors engage in safeguarding training. This means that staff are up to date in their knowledge of child protection. Pupils reported that they feel safe in school because, ‘there is always an adult available to help you’. Pupils know how to keep themselves safe on the internet because they learn about it in class and assemblies. Pupils said that they have also received guidance on road safety, anti-bullying and how to be a good friend.
