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 last inspection. Since your appointment in September 2013, shortly after the previous inspection, you have led the school through a period of considerable change. As executive headteacher of both this school and the neighbouring junior school, you have established a vision for the federation, and promoted values that unite both schools. For example, during the recent ‘World Book Day’, pupils from both schools came together to celebrate a love of reading. You have taken care to appoint new members of the leadership team who have particular skills and experience to improve the quality of teaching. You have appointed new teachers and a number of teaching assistants. You have been well supported through these changes by the combined board of governors for the federation. You have successfully addressed most of the areas for improvement identified at the previous inspection. Teachers plan lessons carefully to match most pupils’ learning needs. The impact of teaching on pupils’ learning over time is good. Disadvantaged pupils are now achieving outcomes in line with those of their peers in many subjects. Teaching staff have helped pupils become more resilient in their learning. Pupils are not afraid to make mistakes and enjoy learning from them. The feedback that pupils receive from teaching staff is helping them to improve the presentation of their work, which is particularly good in mathematics.
