School Description

Pupils at this school are happy and safe. Adults care for them well. Pupils and staff enjoy very positive relationships. Pupils know that if they have a problem they can talk with staff to sort it out. Pupils behave well. They know how to behave in different situations, for example on the playground and during assembly. There are a few incidents of poor behaviour. When these happen, staff help pupils to moderate their behaviour. Pupils are well rewarded for their achievements. Weekly and termly awards recognise the effort and kindness that pupils show. Staff encourage pupils to take on responsibilities. Pupils elect the head boy and girl, and school council representatives, democratically. At the lunchtime reading club, Year 6 pupils help younger pupils to practise reading. The older pupils guide their younger peers to choose books and to overcome difficulties. By the time pupils leave the school, most have achieved well in English and mathematics. The quality of education has improved in these subjects. However, this is not the case in all subjects. The curriculum in some subjects is too narrow. Pupils do not learn enough about the world, and their own or other cultures.

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 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 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.

“Our visit”
"> Me and my daughter went to look around the school today. We was welcomed by a very friendly and happy receptionist who instantly made myself, my mum and my daughter feel welcome. Mr Baxter then introduced himself to us and was very down to earth. He showed us around the school and explained everything as we walked around. A fantastic first impression of an outstanding headteacher. Mr Baxter also leads the PE sessions and sports clubs, getting involved with the children and this shows from the rapport that the children have with Mr Baxter. All of the children were relaxed and happy within the setting, which reflected on my daughter who was more than happy to walk off and explore independently and confidently. The outside area is outstanding with climbing facilities, a football pitch and more! Perfect for children to be challenged and explore. My daughter now starts Gosberton Academy on Monday. I am so pleased I have this opportunity to send my daughter to such an outstanding happy school.
"> Friendly staff and a lovely school!
