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

Ernesettle Community School is of above average size. It serves a largely White British community from the surrounding area. The proportions of disabled pupils, those with special educational needs, including those with a statement, and of those known to be eligible for free school meals, are above average. There has been a change in leadership since the previous inspection. A new headteacher took up the post from 1 February 2011, following a period when he was acting headteacher. The school meets the current government floor standard for the proportion of pupils attaining Level 4 and above in both English and mathematics and of those making expected progress in these two subjects. When Ernesettle Community School was inspected in May 2010, it was judged to require special measures. Subsequently, the school was inspected on four occasions. At the last monitoring inspection, the school was judged to be making good progress.

I moved my children to Ernesettle Community School a couple of years ago and what an amazing school it is! My children have grown in confidence, are happy to go to school and have settled well due to the help and support from the excellent members of staff. The school has been an amazing support in all aspects of their education and continue to encourage my children to be the best they can be. My children thrive each day and long may this continue.
