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

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. Since you joined the school as headteacher in September 2017 you have successfully developed an ambitious vision for the school which is shared by other school leaders, staff and governors. Staff morale is high and staff say that they are proud to work at Greenhill. Almost all the parents and carers who responded to Ofsted’s online survey, Parent View, are highly supportive of the school. Many of them commented on the school’s ‘close-knit’, community atmosphere and recognise that the school makes good provision for their children’s academic and social development. Pupils are polite, friendly and welcoming to visitors. Their behaviour during lessons and breaktimes is consistently good. Pupils are attentive and settle quickly to their work. When they are asked to work cooperatively, pupils listen attentively to each other, respect their friends’ ideas and confidently express their own opinions. Pupils’ enjoyment of school is reflected in their above-average rates of attendance and low levels of persistent absence. The school provides pupils with a curriculum that covers a wide range of subjects and topics, and which promotes pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and appreciation of core British values very effectively. Pupils have welcomed the introduction of more visits out of school to support their learning in different subjects. For example, some pupils spoke enthusiastically about visiting Chester as part of their learning about the Romans. Pupils are also pleased that there are more extra-curricular clubs available to them, including American football, although the selection is still fairly small. While the curriculum is broad and pupils largely find it interesting, more work is needed to provide greater depth and challenge to the learning that takes place in subjects such as geography and science. Your work to address the areas for improvement identified in the previous inspection report has been successful. There has been a year-on-year increase in the proportion of pupils reaching the higher standards in reading and mathematics and writing at greater depth by the end of key stage 2. Provisional data for 2018 confirms that this upward trend is continuing. Teachers provide pupils with plenty of opportunities to practise and develop their writing skills across the curriculum, such as when writing recounts in history. Subject leaders have improved their skills in checking on the quality of teaching and learning in their subject areas. You have made also good use of individual staff members’ skills and subject knowledge when assigning subject leader roles. Subject leadership of English and mathematics is strong and standards continue to rise. There is no sense, though, that you are content to rest on your laurels. You and your fellow leaders and governors appreciate that, although pupils’ attainment by the end of Year 6 is typically above average, there is potential for pupils to achieve even more. You have a clear and accurate picture of the school’s strengths and weaknesses and have put well-thought-out plans in place to continue to move the school forward. Safeguarding is effective. The leadership team has ensured that safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose. There is a strong safeguarding culture within the school. Pupils say that they feel safe in school and can describe how school leaders have made sure that their school site is safe and secure. They have no concerns about bullying in their school and say that staff look after them well if they are worried about anything. This positive view was confirmed by the parents who responded to Ofsted’s online survey, Parent View, almost all of whom said that their children were safe and well looked after in school. Leaders carry out appropriate checks on staff and governors to make sure that they are suitable people to work with children. These checks are recorded diligently. Staff and governors receive regular training covering different aspects of safeguarding so that their knowledge of good practice is up to date. Staff understand the procedures to follow if they are worried about a pupil’s welfare, and leaders ensure that any such concerns are followed up swiftly. Inspection findings The inspection focused on a number of key lines of enquiry. The first of these looked at the quality of teaching and learning in phonics, because results in the Year 1 phonics screening check in 2017 had dipped alarmingly to be well below the national average.
