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 an average-sized primary school. The vast majority of pupils are from minority ethnic backgrounds and most speak English as an additional language. The proportions of both groups are much higher than the national average. The proportion of pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities is slightly lower than average. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils is slightly lower than average. Far more pupils arrive and leave at times other than the start of the Reception Year than is the case nationally. For example, 16 new pupils have joined Year 4 this academic year. Many of these new arrivals are at the very early stage of learning English. The school has been through several turbulent years, with staff changes at senior leadership level, changes in the governing body, long-term staff sickness, an extensive Inspection report: Gordon Primary School, 21–22 March 2018 Page 9 of 12 building project, and the transition from being an infant school to becoming a primary school with key stage 2 classes. At the time of this inspection, the substantive headteacher was on long-term sick leave. The governors and the local authority have put in place an experienced headteacher, acting in an executive capacity for two and a half days per week, and another experienced associate headteacher who is full time. The early years consists of one Nursery class that operates in the mornings and two full-time Reception classes.
