School Description

The school meets the requirements on the publication of specified information on its website. The school meets the government’s floor standards, which set out the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress at the end of Year 11. The 16 to 19 study programmes meet the minimum standards set by the government. The school will become part of the Spencer Academies Trust on 1 January 2018. The school is a larger than average-sized secondary school. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups is significantly above average, as is the proportion who do speak English as an additional language. A very small number of pupils receive their education full time through Kingsmead Junction 16 and Derby Pride Academy. Inspection report: Derby Moor Community Sports College, 7–8 December 2017 Page 9 of 11 Information about this inspection Inspectors observed teaching and learning across a range of subjects and year groups in 43 lessons or part lessons and some jointly with senior leaders. Inspectors also heard pupils read. Inspectors had meetings with senior leaders, leaders of teaching subjects and year groups, other teachers and governors. Inspectors also met with the school’s improvement advisor and a representative from the local authority. The views of pupils in all year groups were sought through meetings and informally in lessons and around the school. Inspectors took into account the 91 responses from Ofsted’s online questionnaire, Parent View, and an additional 56 via the text service. They considered the 165 responses to the online pupil questionnaire and the 53 responses from the online questionnaire for staff. Inspectors looked at a range of documents including senior leaders’ own evaluations of the school’s performance and plans for improvement, documents for managing teachers’ performance and records of training. They also looked at information on pupils’ progress and attainment, behaviour, attendance and how the school keeps pupils safe.

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.
