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

This is a larger than average size infant school. Many of the pupils come from relatively advantaged backgrounds and most are from White British heritage. A much lower than average proportion of pupils comes from a minority ethnic background. Of these, a tiny number speak English as an additional language. A much lower than average percentage of pupils are entitled to a free school meal. No pupil currently has a statement of educational needs and the proportion of pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities is about a third of the national average figure. The school’s Early Years Foundation Stage provision consists of two Nursery classes, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, and three Reception classes. The pupils have access to a breakfast club and an after-school club. These are not managed by the school and are not within the remit of this inspection and will be reported on separately. A copy of the report will be available on the Ofsted website. The school has the Gold Artsmark Award, NAACE status in recognition of its work in information and communication technology, the Healthy School’s Quality mark, the International School’s Award and Extended School’s Status. Since January 2009 the school has been led by an acting headteacher.
