School Description

Elangeni School is an average-sized junior school. Most pupils are of White British heritage and speak English as their first language. The proportion of pupils with SEND is well below the national average. The proportion of pupils who are eligible for the pupil premium is well below the national average. Over the past three years, there has been a period of staffing changes at the school. In addition, several members of the governing body are new to their roles. Elangeni School offers a very wide variety of clubs and activities, both before and after school.

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

“Excellent”
AUTHOR:
"> Fantastic school, leadership and pupils are stretched.
“Get ready for a shock”
AUTHOR:
"> This school is far from excellent. The Ofsted was in 2009! You can compare it with different schools here; I wish I knew about this website before. Not even the national average! Tutoring from Year 3 is my advice as per everyone else in the school. For me, this school was a big disappointment.
“Could do more to stretch pupils”
AUTHOR:
"> Another year of high staff turnover with more than half of the class teachers leaving. This school used to be on a par with other schools in the area with similar catchments, but over recent years has fallen a good way behind Little Chalfont & other local schools. The school is not doing enough to stretch pupils, as shown on the negative progress scores on this site. I agree with the other parent commenting in Feb 16, that the high levels of tuition (mainly English and Maths skills) for the 11+ test, is artificially inflating the SATS scores achieved by pupils within this school.
“Pupils always put first.”
AUTHOR:
"> So pleased with how the school has looked after our children. They don't stop when a child reaches 'satisfactory', all areas of the child's academic development are supported ie extra maths help for children that have made greater than expected progress to support and maintain the progress which we thought was brilliant. There is capacity for the children to be exposed to a broad range of extra curricula activities and their interests are celebrated. A lovely school and we are lucky to live in catchment.
“Not as good as it once was”
AUTHOR:
"> The last year has seen a lot of disruption with the loss of a good number of teachers. A lot of children have suffered because of this. 11+ results are upheld not by the schools achievement but by outside sources. In my experience as a parent, those who pass have been known to have up to three extra tutoring sessions per week outside of school to achieve a pass.
