The concentration of pupils shows likelihood of admission based on distance criteria

Source: All attending pupils National School Census Data, ONS

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 criteria in which schools use to allocate places in the event that they are oversubscribed can and do vary between schools and over time. These criteria can include distance from the school and sometimes specific catchment areas but can also include, amongst others, priority for siblings, children of a particular faith or specific feeder schools. Living in an area where children have previously attended a school does not guarantee admission to the school in future years. Always check with the school’s own admission authority for the current admission arrangements.

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.

School Description

Haughton School is a nurturing school. Staff are attentive to pupils’ needs. They go the extra mile to care for them. Relationships between staff and pupils are excellent. One parent’s comment echoed that of other parents and carers, when they said, ‘The school community feels like a family.’ Staff support pupils well in how to manage their emotions. If pupils become upset, staff are quick to resettle them to their learning. This helps lessons to run smoothly. Bullying does not worry pupils. If pupils are unkind to others, leaders deal with it quickly and effectively. As a result, pupils feel safe and are happy to be in school. Leaders are aspirational and passionate about what pupils can achieve. They want pupils to learn to the best of their abilities and to develop the social skills they need to be successful in the future. Pupils respond well to these expectations. They make good progress towards their education, health and care (EHC) plan outcomes. Staff teach pupils how to become active, responsible citizens by giving them roles and responsibilities. These include being a member of the school council or a classroom helper. Pupils raise money for charities and support a local food bank. Pupils enjoy taking on these responsibilities.
