School Description

Hampton Vale Primary School is a larger than average-sized primary school and nursery. The school has experienced significant growth over the last three years, having gone from a two-form to a three-form entry school. The Nursery setting has two sessions per day, including provision for a number of twoyear-old children. The school has experienced significant staffing turnover, and a new leadership structure was implemented in September 2017. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for pupil premium funding is similar to the national average. The proportion of pupils who have additional support to meet their special educational needs is below national average. In 2017, the school met the government’s current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment in English and mathematics. Inspection report: Hampton Vale Primary School, 21–22 March 2018 Page 10 of 13 Information about this inspection All inspectors either observed teaching and learning, or undertook learning walks in every class during both the first and the second day of the inspection. Observations were undertaken with the headteacher, deputy headteacher, assistant headteachers, the teaching and learning leader and the early years leader. During this time, inspectors also spoke to pupils and looked at their English, mathematics and curriculum books. Meetings were held with the headteacher, the deputy headteacher and the assistant headteachers to discuss their impact in their various leadership roles and responsibilities. Inspectors also met with the subject leaders of mathematics, English, history, geography and music. The lead inspector met with a representative of the local authority and had an additional phone conversation with the same representative. The lead inspector also met with the chair and four other governors on the first day of the inspection. Additionally, the lead inspector held a telephone conversation with the chair of governors on the second day of the inspection. An extensive range of documents was evaluated regarding the school’s safeguarding arrangements. These included the child protection policy, the single central record of employment checks, accident and behaviour logs, exclusion records and notes of actions taken to protect children at risk of harm. Inspectors considered a range of documentation, including the school’s self-evaluation and school termly operational plan, published information about pupils’ attainment and progress, and the school’s records about pupils’ current achievement. Additionally, a thorough scrutiny was also undertaken of the effectiveness of assessment system used by teachers to record pupils’ progress and attainment. Inspectors also looked at a wide range of pupils’ work for all subject areas, as well as any monitoring information leaders had on the quality of teaching, learning and assessment. The lead inspector scrutinised the school’s website and minutes of meetings of the governing body and committee minutes. Inspectors took account of the 82 responses to the Ofsted pupil survey. Additionally, inspectors observed and spoke to children and pupils at break and lunchtime as they played in the playground. Inspectors also met formally with groups of pupils to talk about their school experience, heard some pupils read and observed school assembly reflection times. Inspectors spoke with parents as they dropped off and picked up their children from school on the first and second day of the inspection. Inspectors also considered the 134 views expressed in the responses to the Ofsted online questionnaire, Parent View, and comments made by 123 parents using the free-text service. Inspectors spoke to members of staff about safeguarding pupils in particular, and took account of the 51 staff responses to the online Ofsted questionnaire and 27 staff responses to the Ofsted paper questionnaire undertaken in school during the second day of the inspection.

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.
