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

Pupils thrive in this school. Leaders have developed a culture where pupils feel listened to and take an active role in the school. Pupils take on roles of responsibility such as school councillors and school librarians. This builds a genuine feeling of belonging to the school community. Teachers have high expectations for pupils. They encourage pupils to challenge themselves in lessons. Teachers help pupils to develop their confidence and build positive relationships with one another. Pupils develop their understanding of themes such as citizenship through the school’s ‘Shine’ curriculum. This helps them to build an awareness of local and global issues. Pupils delight in rewards offered for good work. This includes incentives to read to Boris, the school dog. Pupils behave well in class and around the school. This is because leaders have high expectations and have established helpful routines. When children misbehave, adults help them improve their behaviours and learn how to manage their emotions. When bullying happens, adults work quickly to put things right. Pupils feel safe. They enjoy playtime and know that if something goes wrong when at play, they can speak to a trusted adult.

“This is a great school”

"> We moved to Cranbrook in September 2014 and are very happy with this school. The comments and information on this site don't seem to reflect the school as we believe it currently is. There is a really positive vibe, pupil numbers are increasing not decreasing, there has been a massive turnaround in behaviour and attitudes to learning, and expectations from the teachers and parents are high. Both my children love it here and are doing very well. I would strongly recommend a visit to the school for anyone thinking of attending. My children's previous school is rated 4* on this sight, but Cranbrook primary is giving them a much better well-rounded education and really supporting them to thrive, so I would not recommend making judgements based on the ratings on this site - go and visit and see for yourself!
“On the up”

"> My children attend this school and are very happy there (and making excellent progress!). Following a very disappointing OFSTED inspection in Nov 2013, a new Head Teacher has been leading the school since March 2014 and things have really begun to turn around. Staffing is now stable, despite what has been written in the info above (ie, it's out of date) with the most recent HMI visit being very positive about the teaching and learning observed (Good and Outstanding judgments).I would definitely recommend a visit if you are local to Cranbrook.
