School Description

Dawley CofE Primary Academy is smaller than the average-sized primary school. The school is part of St Chad’s Academies Trust, which comprises 16 schools. The school is governed by the board of trustees. There is a local academy committee that oversees aspects of the school’s work. This is the school’s first inspection since it became a sponsored academy in May 2016. A high proportion of pupils are from White British backgrounds. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils is above the national average. The proportion of pupils with SEND is above the national average. The number of pupils with education, health and care plans is also above the national average. There is one Nursery class and one Reception class. There are two mixed-age classes in Years 1 and 2, in Years 3 and 4, and in Years 5 and 6. The school runs a before- and after-school club. Inspection report: Dawley Church of England Primary Academy, 2–3 April 2019 Page 10 of 12 Information about this inspection Inspectors observed pupils’ learning in parts of 16 lessons. One inspector visited the before-school club. Inspectors observed pupils’ behaviour in lessons, around the school and at breaktimes and lunchtimes. Inspectors spoke formally with three groups of pupils as well as talking to pupils in lessons and around the school. An inspector listened to a group of pupils read and talked to them about their reading. Inspectors examined the quality of work in pupils’ English, mathematics and topic books. An inspector also reviewed work in children’s learning journals. Discussions were held with the principal, vice principal and other school leaders. One inspector met with a group of staff to gather their views on safeguarding, professional development and pupils’ learning. The lead inspector met with the chief executive officer, head of school performance and diocesan improvement adviser from St Chad’s Academies Trust. A telephone conversation was held with the chair of governors and a meeting was held with a member of the local academy committee. Inspectors reviewed a wide range of documentation, including the school’s selfevaluation and academy improvement plan, information about current pupils’ attainment and progress, records of checks made on the quality of teaching, records relating to safeguarding and attendance, information on the school’s website and minutes of meetings of the local academy committee and raising achievement board. Inspectors took into consideration the 33 responses to Parent View. An inspector spoke to parents at the beginning of the school day.

The concentration of pupils shows likelihood of admission based on distance criteria

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 areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

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.
