School Description

The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website. The school complies with Department for Education guidance on what academies should publish. Halewood Academy converted to become an academy in May 2013. At that point it was judged good, but went into special measures at the subsequent inspection in April 2015. At the time of that inspection, the current principal had been in post for two terms. Inspection report: Halewood Academy, 26–27 April 2017 Page 10 of 13 Since the previous inspection, the school has worked very closely with Wade Deacon, a local outstanding school. Wade Deacon is the leading institution of the Wade Deacon Trust. Halewood has been part of this multi-academy trust since February 2017. Halewood is slightly larger than the average-sized secondary school, with a very small on-site sixth form. The sixth form was closed to new entrants last academic year due to lack of viability and there are currently only Year 13 students on roll, in the process of completing their studies. Most pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils supported by the pupil premium funding is well above average and increasing. The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities is above average. The academy uses alternative provision for a very small number of pupils, from a number of providers including Harmonize Academy, Fairbridge, YPOP, Progress Sport and Basetech. The academy has undergone substantial changes to its leadership team and governance since the previous inspection. The school meets the Department for Education’s definition of a coasting school based on key stage 4 academic performance results in 2014, 2015 and 2016.

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.
