School Description

Dene Magna is smaller than the average secondary school and serves a mainly White British rural community in the Forest of Dean. It converted to an academy on 1 September 2011. When last inspected in September 2008, Dene Magna School was judged to be outstanding. The current headteacher was appointed in 2010 and a new deputy headteacher will take up his appointment in January 2013. Almost all students are from White British heritage and very few speak English as an additional language. The proportions of students supported through school action and of those supported at school action plus are similar to the national averages although the proportion with statements is higher. The proportion of students known to be eligible for the pupil premium is much lower than that found nationally. A number of students follow applied vocational courses at nearby colleges, the main one being Hartpury College. The school meets the government’s current floor standards that set the minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress.

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 last School Census (released annually in July).

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 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 last 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.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.

BY PARENTS, FOR PARENTS

“Back to school meeting”
AUTHOR:
"> I would just like to say following a back to school meeting today about the high quality professionalism during the meeting. The person holding the meeting looked at my child as an individual. He was very positive throughout. He relayed my sons strengths to him and gave some positive helpful advise on how to strengthen his weaknesses. He was a great listener, he was fair and helpful. My son has delveloped and improved his social and academic skills every year. I feel confident that the staff at dene magna will continue to make a significant positive difference to my sons academic and social growth. I would like to say a big thank you to all the staff for making a difference and contributing to his growth in such a positive way.
