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.

School Description

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. You have provided consistent leadership for the school and improved the quality of education of pupils in many ways. Pupils enjoy their school life and the opportunities available to them. The school positively encourages a culture of achievement and care – care towards each other and towards the environment. The school strives to ensure that ‘all children can achieve their potential in a safe, happy and healthy environment’. You and the staff enjoy high levels of support from parents and pupils, who cite the school’s strong caring and supportive nature as a significant strength. Since the last inspection you have continued to improve the quality of teaching and learning across the school, in particular the quality of English and mathematics teaching, the latter of which was identified as an area for improvement at the previous inspection. Pupils’ attainment in both subjects has steadily improved since 2012 and overall attainment and progress have been above national averages until 2016, when results were slightly below average. Leaders have demonstrated good capacity to improve the school. As a result of focused work to improve pupils’ arithmetic skills, pupils in all years demonstrate a confident understanding of number skills and facts appropriate for their age. The mathematics subject leader’s work to improve the quality of teaching is making a difference. Pupils’ reasoning skills are being developed regularly by teachers, as this area was identified as a weakness in the recent 2016 tests. Pupils are developing their confidence to articulate how they carry out their calculations to answer mathematical problems. However, their written explanations are not always clear. Leaders recognise that unless pupils have more practice on this aspect of their mathematical skills, pupils’ performance in national tests may be compromised. English teaching has improved across the school. Teachers develop pupils’ writing skills well. Teachers benefit from good-quality support from a literacy adviser, who is also the acting co-chair of the governing body. The English subject leader has introduced more focused work to develop pupils’ comprehension skills, in particular pupils’ understanding of inference, in key stage 2. In addition, leaders have introduced extra spelling, punctuation and grammar lessons to reinforce the requirements of the national curriculum. Pupils enjoy reading and pupils spoke very positively about their experience of reading with and to adults. Subject leaders of English and mathematics are a strength of the school’s leadership. They have a sharp understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of their subject in different year groups. These leaders ensure that their own skills are developed well so that they can develop their curriculum areas confidently. Their role in monitoring the quality of teaching, especially in mathematics, has been limited this term. You acknowledge that teachers in all classes would benefit from subject specialist input regularly, to further improve pupils’ outcomes and the quality of teaching. New governors have added greater strength to the governing body. There is now a good range of skills and knowledge among the members. Governors are skilled at holding you and other leaders to account. They monitor the school’s actions well and have ensured that the school’s judgements of its own effectiveness are verified through extra independent external scrutiny. Safeguarding is effective. You, as the designated safeguarding leader, have ensured that pupils’ safety is a high priority in the school. The governor with safeguarding responsibilities is skilled and knowledgeable about child protection matters; he has excellent oversight of safeguarding arrangements in the school. The training programme for staff is comprehensive. Staff are kept informed about child protection matters regularly and they are encouraged to share their concerns with you and the deputy safeguarding leader. Pupils are confident that the adults in the school will listen to their concerns. Any bullying incidents are dealt with firmly by teachers. The school promotes the anti-bullying week enthusiastically through posters and assemblies. Child protection records are kept meticulously by you and there is evidence of your tenacious approach to seeking external support for pupils in need. The curriculum is always under review. You endeavour to ensure that the latest issues related to safeguarding, such as sexting, child sexual exploitation and eating disorders are covered in personal, social and health education (PSHE) lessons. Pupils receive regular online safety lessons. Pupils are taught how to keep safe around water and roads, which represent some of the local risks to pupils. The governor in charge of safeguarding has ensured that the school’s site safety has been improved. Teachers encourage pupils to read the news and discuss topical issues in their newsround sessions. Pupils are encouraged to learn about people and cultures around the world. In so doing, the school is preventing pupils from being drawn to extremist views. You and the school governor have devised a robust safeguarding action plan to support the school’s further development of its safeguarding arrangements. Inspection findings You have devised a clear and appropriate action plan which addresses the key priorities for the school correctly. You have committed to amending some of the activities to address the issues identified at this inspection. One of the greatest strengths of the school is the staff’s commitment to each individual pupil’s needs. As such, clear plans are devised to ensure that pupils in need of extra help are supported. Teaching assistants are effective in the classroom and in providing one-to-one support. The proportion of boys is much higher than girls. Currently, in many year groups, more boys than girls have additional needs. You have been keen to ensure that the curriculum is interesting to boys and helps them to make progress. The reading books in the library, the choice of topic work and the range of resources have all helped to engage boys more in their learning. This strategy is becoming more successful and effective each year. Observations of learning during the inspection showed little difference between boys’ and girls’ engagement and progress. Pupils’ attainment since the last inspection has improved steadily in both English and mathematics. Expected and more than expected progress in reading and mathematics also improved from 2013 to 2015 and remained consistently above national averages. Pupils’ outcomes in 2016 were below national averages. Leaders expected poorer results in mathematics and English, as the level of social, behavioural and emotional concerns among the pupils of that year group was considerably higher than previous years. While many of these pupils, predominantly boys, settled well, they did not all reach expected standards. The provision in the early years is improving. I noted high levels of engagement among the children, both indoors and outdoors. The school’s priority to accelerate children’s progress in mathematics is supported well by a wide range of interesting resources to stimulate children’s learning in number skills and to promote their understanding. Both boys and girls enjoyed matching pebble numbers to the correct place on the number ladder. A pair of girls discussed the placement of the number zero and correctly placed it before the first rung on the ladder. The early years leader and teaching assistants understand the needs of all pupils well. Parents rightly praise the staff for their caring and supportive approach to children. The early years outcomes have improved year on year. The small but growing number of disadvantaged pupils are supported well. Your evaluation of the way the pupil premium funding was spent last year is incisive. You correctly identify the specific needs of the disadvantaged pupils in the school. The plans to support these pupils are specific and appropriate. You have identified the small number of most-able disadvantaged pupils, who require additional support to enable them to reach the high levels they should. These pupils are making good progress.
