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

Exeter Royal Academy for Deaf Education is a non-maintained special school for moderate, severe and profoundly deaf pupils. Pupils are learning English as an additional language and some have delayed use of their first language, BSL. All pupils have an education, health and care plan. The school caters for primary and secondary pupils. There is also a specialist college provision which caters for students aged 16 to 25. An inspection of the college’s provision took place at the same time as the school. There have been significant changes to the staffing structure of the school since the previous standard inspection. Most notably, there have been changes in the senior leadership team and in governance. There are two co-principals. One principal holds responsibility for the quality of education, the other for safeguarding and care. There is a new chair and vice-chair of the governing body. Most pupils in school are residential. The inspection of the residential provision was Inspection report: Exeter Royal Academy for Deaf Education, 16–17 January 2019 Page 8 of 11 aligned with the inspection of the school provision. Although the school is designated for those aged five to 16, currently there are no pupils in key stage 1. The proportion of pupils who are eligible for pupil premium funding is above the national average. The school does not use any alternative provision. Plans are in place to relocate the school to a new site in 2020.
