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

Pupils at Gorse Ride Infant School receive a good start to their education. Pupils are happy because they feel safe and secure. They know that adults in the school are ready to help them when they need it. Pupils and staff appreciate the ordered, well-equipped environment and make good use of it. Pupils are enthusiastic about the lessons that teachers plan for them. Staff make sure that they use pupils’ interests and school values as a basis for learning. Lessons interest pupils and are well taught. As a result, pupils learn and achieve well. The early years provision is a strength of the school. The indoor and outdoor areas are creatively resourced. Children make the most of the carefully chosen activities and have lots of opportunities to practise their reading, writing and number skills. Well-trained adults support them. Children who need extra support are quickly identified, and help is put in place. Across the school, staff have high expectations of behaviour, and pupils respond to these. Pupils arrive at school eager to learn, and the school buzzes with purposeful activity. Parents and carers are very positive about their children’s experiences and describe the school as a place where children thrive.
