School Description

The school is larger than the average-sized primary school. A new headteacher and a large majority of teachers joined the school in September 2018. In January 2017, an IEB was established by the local authority and currently oversees the work of the school. A large majority of pupils are from minority ethnic groups and most of these pupils speak English as an additional language. The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium is much higher than that found nationally. The proportion of pupils with SEND is above average. The school does not have a Nursery. The early years foundation stage consists of two full-time Reception classes. Inspection report: Heath Mount Primary School, 18–19 June 2019 Page 11 of 13 Information about this inspection Inspectors held meetings with the headteacher and other key leaders. The lead inspector spoke with two members of the IEB, including the chair. The lead inspector met with two representatives from the local authority. Inspectors made visits to classrooms on both days of the inspection. Many of these visits were made jointly with the headteacher or assistant headteacher. Inspectors scrutinised a wide selection of pupils’ workbooks from different subjects. Inspectors spoke to pupils formally and informally. A group of pupils met with inspectors to discuss a range of issues. Pupils read to the inspectors. Inspectors observed behaviour in classrooms, in corridors, at lunchtime and outside on the playground. Inspectors talked to parents before school. The lead inspector considered the eight responses received to the free-text service. The lead inspector considered the individual response to Ofsted’s staff questionnaire. Various school documents were scrutinised, including the school development plan, records of monitoring, reports to governors and minutes of their meetings. Information about pupils’ progress, behaviour, attendance and safety was also analysed and discussed with leaders. Documents relating to safeguarding were checked and an inspector looked at published information on the school’s website.

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.
