Furze Infant School is a larger–than-average-sized infant school. The large majority of pupils come from a range of minority ethnic heritages, and this proportion is much higher than usual. Almost half of pupils speak English as an additional language. A lower-than-average proportion of pupils are supported through school action or school action plus or have a statement of special education needs. Almost a third of the pupils are known to be eligible for support through the pupil premium, which is additional funding given to schools for children in specific groups including those in the care of the local authority and those known to be eligible for free school meals. At Furze Infant School the pupils eligible for the pupil premium are those known to be entitled to free school meals, and this proportion is just higher than the national average. The school is led by an executive headteacher who is also the executive headteacher of the junior school which most of the pupils go to when they leave Furze Infant School. These two schools form a federation and share one governing body. The executive headteacher is a National Leader of Education and together with other members of staff from both schools in the federation support a number of other local schools. The school welcomed six new teachers to the staff in September including three newly qualified teachers. A number of staff were absent during the inspection for approved reasons.

Heat map key


How have we plotted this heat map?

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using actual school admissions data from the School Census collected by the Department for Education. It gives a good indication of the areas a pupil would need to live in to have been successfully admitted to the school in the last academic year for which data is available.

We use groups of postcodes to show general admission areas and label them according to likelihood of admission based on last year’s intake. We may have removed statistical outliers with more remote postcodes such a siblings and high priority pupils.

This map is to be used as a guide only. Catchment areas can change from year to year to reflecting the number of siblings and high priority pupils. Living at a postcode that returns a Very Likely admission indicator does not guarantee admission and a pupil’s location always needs to be considered alongside individual school admission criteria.
