School Description

The school is smaller than the average primary school. The school opened in September 2015 and is growing in size from Reception and key stage 1 upwards. The principal was instrumental in setting up the school along with the local board of governors. The school was formerly part of the Colston’s Girls’ School Trust, which merged with Venturers Trust in September 2017. The majority of pupils attending the school are of White British heritage, with an increasingly diverse community. The proportion of pupils who are supported by the pupil premium funding is below the national average. The proportion of pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities is below the national average. The proportion of pupils who have an education, health and care plan is well below the national average. Inspection report: Fairlawn Primary School, 26–27 April 2018 Page 9 of 11 Information about this inspection The lead inspector observed pupils’ learning across the school. All observations were undertaken alongside the principal. The lead inspector looked at pupils’ current work in books across the curriculum and carried out learning walks across the school. The lead inspector listened to pupils read in Year 1 and Year 2 and spoke with them to find out about their attitudes to reading. Meetings were held with governors, middle leaders and pupils. The lead inspector met with the challenge and support partner from Venturers Trust. The lead inspector took account of 82 responses to Parent View, Ofsted’s online questionnaire, and informal discussions with parents when they brought their children to school. The lead inspector talked to pupils at break and lunchtime, as well as during lessons. The lead inspector looked at a wide range of school documents, including the school’s self-evaluation, school improvement plan, school policies, governors’ minutes of meetings and the school’s own assessment systems and monitoring records. The lead inspector reviewed a wide range of safeguarding evidence, including the school’s single central record, details of training, behaviour and incident logs and risk assessments.

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.
