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

Pupils receive a good-quality education in their time in this school. Learning to read and write is highly prioritised. Pupils are taught early reading skills well. They develop good writing skills, learning letter shapes alongside what they sound like. As pupils move through the school, teachers share a love of reading with pupils. Pupils enjoy acting out stories and writing their own versions. There is a broad curriculum in place, engaging pupils in a variety of topics and developing their knowledge. Due to changes in leadership, there are some subjects where leaders are not sure how well things are taught. There is some inconsistency in the mathematics curriculum across the school. However, there is strong teaching throughout the school. Pupils achieve well. Pupils experience a wide range of activities beyond English, mathematics and science. The younger pupils make regular use of the ‘maze’, a woodland area. There are lots of visits out of school, and visitors who come in. Most pupils are well behaved, polite, work hard and play well with their peers. Those who show excellent attitudes are rewarded with ‘good egg’ badges. The oldest pupils take on a range of responsibilities at playtime and in assemblies. There are a few pupils who do struggle to control their own behaviour. When incidents do take place, they are dealt with quickly and appropriately. A range of support in class and from the nurture team helps support pupils who need the extra help for their behaviour and emotional needs.
