School Description

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. You and your dedicated, highly skilled team of teaching staff are providing a secure, safe and happy environment for pupils to learn and thrive. Because of your high expectations and clear and united vision, pupils, many of whom are vulnerable, are helped to access the best support and make good and better progress in their learning. Parents are appreciative of all that you do for them and their children. During my conversations with them, one parent’s sentiment echoed those of many, saying that, ‘It is difficult to know who to thank as there are so many members of staff responsible for helping my child.’ Your commitment to pupils and families is unwavering, and this extends further into the wider community. Leaders are very knowledgeable about the local context, with many having worked with families for many years. They use this knowledge proactively to protect and support pupils’ well-being. Leaders share their vast amount of experience and knowledge, particularly around nurture and pupils’ wellbeing, to support other schools. Parents are overwhelmingly positive about the school. Many who responded to Ofsted’s free-text service say their children are thriving, excelling and developing in confidence. They describe the school as a place where pupils are supported, safe and are made to feel valued. You ensure that pupils experience a healthy lifestyle while at school and have encouraged all families to take advantage of the universal free-school meals. All pupils, without exception, now have a hot and healthy cooked meal at lunchtime.

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.
