School Description

This school is smaller than the average-sized primary school. The school opened as a free school in September 2013. Currently it has Reception and Year 1 classes and is growing year on year until it has the full primary age range. There are two classes in each year group. Provision in the Early Years Foundation Stage is full-time. The school is currently housed in temporary accommodation on the upper school site of Hatcham College. There are strong links with the college, which is an all-through primary and secondary school based on three sites. A new building for the free school is under construction on the same school site as the current accommodation and this is expected to be completed in time for occupation in September 2015. Records show that the proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups is lower than the national average. Similarly, the proportion of pupils who have a first language other than English is also lower than average. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils who are eligible for the pupil premium, which provides additional funding for looked after children and pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, is less than a third of the national average. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is below average, as is the proportion of pupils with greater learning needs supported through school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs. The school does not use alternative provision for pupils. The current headteacher is to retire at the end of the summer term and a new headteacher has been appointed and will take up the post in September. The school is part of the Haberdashers’ Aske’s Federation of secondary and primary schools. The headteacher is line managed by the Executive Principal of Hatcham College. The school uses a number of the college’s services including human resources, finance and administrative functions. In addition, there are formal links between the school and the college regarding support for pupils with special educational needs, safeguarding and training for staff.

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 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.

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

“Bigger and better”
"> Brilliant community school. Friendly, caring and inclusive. My son has only been going here for a few months, but has thrived under their fast paced academics and their pastoral care. Looking forward to progressing through the years and being a part of the schools development.
