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 and your leadership team have maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. Following your appointment in 2015, you acted quickly and reviewed all areas of the school, correctly identifying and prioritising areas for improvement. You and your governors reviewed the school’s leadership structure following the promotion of the previous deputy headteacher, and you appointed two assistant headteachers in 2017. As a result, leadership and management have been strengthened further. Governance is a strength of the school. Governors have a wide range of skills and expertise and are very ably led by an enthusiastic and knowledgeable chair of governors. Governors are routinely involved in school life and provide robust challenge and support to leaders at all levels. There is strong capacity in the school’s leadership to achieve the improvements you aspire to. You are relentless in your ambition for continuous school improvement, and you always put the children and pupils in your school at the heart of what you and your staff do. Your determination and passion have ensured that leadership, at all levels, is focused not only on the progress of pupils, but also on their whole school experience. As a result, outcomes of pupils have been strong, overall, since the last inspection, with some variation from year to year. You and your leadership team have successfully dealt with the areas for improvement identified in the last inspection report. At the last inspection, you were asked to improve the quality of teaching from good to outstanding. You were asked to raise achievement further, particularly in writing, by sharing the best-quality teaching already in school. You were advised to increase opportunities for pupils to use their writing skills in subjects other than English. You were also asked to provide pupils with opportunities to read through and check their own work and that of their classmates. You acted swiftly and focused strongly on further staff development and sharing good and outstanding practice, not only within your school, but also through effective collaborations with other schools. You took robust actions to eradicate any weak teaching and worked closely with the local authority to ensure that teacher assessments, at all key stages, are accurate. Current school assessment information indicates an improvement in writing across all year groups, and is evidence of the impact of your actions since the last inspection. Staff value and support your determination to bring about improvements in teaching and learning and professional development. Your passion has created a very strong culture of collaboration and a team ethos among your staff and governors. You and your senior leaders regularly monitor the quality of teaching and have put in place effective monitoring systems and procedures to support further improvement. As a result, all teaching across the school is now strong. Pupils have more opportunities to use their writing skills in subjects like science and regularly check their own work and that of their peers. Safeguarding is effective. You have ensured that all safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose and that records are detailed. There is a strong safeguarding culture in the school. You and your staff know the pupils well, and the monitoring of pupils’ welfare is thorough and detailed. You ensure that you carry out appropriate checks on the suitability of all staff who work with pupils. Your experienced safeguarding governor monitors all areas of safeguarding thoroughly. You recognise that in order to add further capacity in your safeguarding team, more staff should undertake appropriate designated safeguarding lead training. You have ensured that staff and governors receive appropriate training in child protection. All staff know what to do if they have any concerns about the children and pupils in your school. You and your staff meet weekly and discuss all concerns raised about pupils. As a result, the school shares information with external agencies effectively, and leaders take action swiftly and monitor the impact of actions closely. Pupils report that they feel safe in school and know who to go to if they have any concerns. They also say that bullying is very rare and, when it does happen, teachers deal with it effectively. Inspection evidence and the views of parents and staff also support this. Pupils value the support they receive from staff and the way that they are encouraged to look after their physical health. Pupils are polite and respectful to each other and to staff. The relationships between staff and pupils are very positive. As a result, behaviour in lessons and conduct around the school environment are exemplary.
