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 like their caring, friendly school. They enjoy coming to school. They get along well together. The value of ‘respect others’ feelings’ is everywhere in the school. Pupils behave well in lessons and on the playground. They like to be helpful and kind. Pupils say there is no bullying. As the school motto claims, ‘I can, you can, we can’ in Diamond Hall Infant Academy. Staff aim high for what children can achieve. The headteacher and her team carefully plan their teaching. Pupils are excited to imagine being an evacuee or solving the mystery of a crashed spaceship. Pupils are very positive about their learning. They like the teachers and other adults who help them. Pupils want to do well. They try hard in lessons. The headteacher and governors want the absolute best for all pupils. The headteacher listens to the views of staff, parents and carers, and pupils. She has created a school where everyone feels valued. Staff say that leaders always have time to support them. Parents say that staff are ‘friendly, amazing, helpful and approachable.’ Parents are often involved in their child’s learning, including on ‘parent event’ days. Many parents said that they would recommend this school to others.
