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

Emmbrook Infant School is a maintained infant school for pupils aged four to seven years. There are two classes in each year group. The school incorporates a specialist resource provision for pupils who have education, health and care plans linked to hearing impairments. It is funded by the local authority and run jointly with the adjacent junior school. There are currently two pupils in the resource base who attend the infant school. Most pupils are of White British origin. A similar percentage of pupils speak English as an additional language as is the case nationally. The school is in an area of low social deprivation. The proportion of pupils who are eligible for free school meals is well below the national average. A playgroup operates on the school site. It is registered and inspected independently of the infant school. A separately run breakfast and after-school club operates from the bungalow adjacent to the school. Inspection report: Emmbrook Infant School, 15–16 January 2019 Page 9 of 11 Information about this inspection Inspectors met with leaders, and with groups of staff, pupils and governors. The lead inspector met with a representative of the local authority. Inspectors visited all classes to observe learning across a range of subjects. They looked at pupils’ books and talked to them about their work. Some of these visits were carried out with school leaders. Survey responses from 79 pupils and 27 members of staff were considered. Inspectors also took 123 responses to the Parent View online questionnaire into account, including 66 free-text responses, and spoke informally to some parents at the start of the school day. Inspectors scrutinised a range of documents available on the school website and provided by school leaders. These included the school’s self-evaluation and improvement planning, records of meetings, curriculum planning and leaders’ information about pupils’ behaviour, attendance and academic performance.
