Gorse Hall is a larger than average-sized primary school. The proportion of pupils with disabilities or special educational needs who are supported through school action is average. The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is below average. There is a smaller than average proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium. The pupil premium is additional funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, children who are in the care of the local authority and children from service families. The proportions of pupils from minority ethnic groups and who speak English as an additional language are below average. The school meets the government’s current floor standards which are the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress in English and mathematics by the end of Year 6.

How have we plotted this heat map?

School Guide heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps published by a Local Authority. We are in the process of collecting this data and creating catchment maps for School Guide.

Catchment maps show actual cut-off distances, pre-defined catchment areas and geographical admissions criteria. Until we can provide actual catchment data, we believe our heat maps provide a useful indicator of general admission areas for each school.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school

  1. Look at our heat maps. They give a useful indicator of areas likely to admit pupils based on historical data. We explain how this could be helpful below.
  2. Use the link to the relevant Local Authority to find detailed catchment information. Find this link under the school contact details on every school page.
  3. On each school page, use the Website link to visit individual school websites and find information on their admissions criteria.

Methodology of a School Guide heat map

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official school pupil data taken from the School Census collected by the Department for Education. The data tells us where pupils lived at the time of the last School Census (released annually in July). We calculate a likelihood of being admitted to a school from a given area based on this historical data. Areas with a high concentration of pupils successfully admitted to the school are mapped as red (‘Very Likely’), quite concentrated (‘Quite Likely) and less concentrated (‘Less Likely’). This gives a good indication of the area a pupil would need to have lived in to be accepted to the school at the time of the last available data.

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. They may mirror circular catchment shapes but do not show actual cut-off distances. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with sibling(s) 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.

Living at a postcode that returns a ‘Very Likely’ rating based on historical pupil data does not guarantee admission to a current or future intake and vice versa for a ‘Not Likely’ rating. A pupil’s location always needs to be considered alongside individual school admissions criteria (e.g. faith schools require pupils to satisfy religious criteria).

School Guide recommends you use the Local Authority link provided on the individual school page (click on The Data tab, above), if you require exact catchment information or contact the school directly for individual admissions criteria.

See Catchment for more information about the source of the data we use to plot our heat maps.
