School Description

The school is an average sized one-form entry primary school, with an extra class in Year 4. The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium is below average. The pupil premium provides additional funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, those from service families and those in the care of the local authority. Just under three quarters of the pupils come from families of White British heritage. The other pupils come from a range of different minority ethnic backgrounds. The proportion of pupils who have English as an additional language is broadly average. The proportion of pupils supported through school action is average but the proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is higher than in most schools. The breakfast and after-school clubs are managed by the school and were included in this inspection. The school does not send any pupils to be educated off site in other institutions or alternative placements. The school has had some changes to staffing since the previous inspection. The headteacher was appointed in September 2012 and the current senior leadership team was formed in September 2012. A new Chair of the Governing Body was elected in January 2014. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum requirements for pupils’ attainment and progress What does the school need to do to improve further? Raise the overall quality of teaching from good to outstanding by: making sure that teachers are checking pupils’ progress carefully in lessons and using the information more effectively to move pupils on to more challenging work as quickly as possible improving the consistency of marking so that teachers give pupils clear guidance on the next steps and also give them the time to respond to the feedback and so make further progress.

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 last School Census (released annually in July).

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 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 last 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.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.
