School Description

The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website. The school complies with Department for Education guidance on what academies should publish. Ormiston Academies Trust (OAT) sponsors the school. The school is larger than the average secondary school and has a sixth form. Pupils enter the school with levels of prior attainment which are below the national Inspection report: George Salter Academy, 17–18 May 2017 Page 10 of 13 average. Prior attainment levels are increasing for younger pupils. Two out of every 5 pupils are supported by the pupil premium. This proportion is much higher than average. There is a very high proportion of pupils from a range of minority ethnic backgrounds. An above average proportion of pupils speak English as an additional language. An average proportion of pupils have a statement of special educational needs or an education, health or care plan. One in every 5 pupils have special educational needs and/or disabilities supported by the school. This proportion is much higher than average. A very small number of pupils attend alternative provision at Sandwell College for part of the week. The school met the government’s floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress by the end of Year 11 and by the end of 16 to 19 study programmes, in 2016. Two principals shared leadership responsibility for the school following the departure of the principal who was in post when the previous inspection took place. A new principal took up post in September 2016. There have been changes and clarification of roles and responsibilities of leaders in the school. The governing body was disbanded and replaced by an interim advisory board (IAB) shortly after the previous inspection. The IAB monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making and hold leaders to account. There was a period of change in staffing following the previous inspection. There is now more stability in staff working at the school. Teachers who are new to the school this year include new and recently qualified teachers as well as those with more experience. Now, vacancies arise due to promotion of staff or as a result of leaders’ decisions to seek additional capacity. Leaders expect the school to be fully staffed for the new academic year.

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.
