School Description

This is a smaller than average primary school with very small cohorts. Some groups may represent one individual. It has four mixed-aged classes: a combined Nursery and Reception, a Year 1 and Year 2 class, a Year 3 class and a class comprising Years 4, 5 and 6. In April 2015, the school federated with Witheridge Church of England Primary School to form part of the Taw Valley Federation. At this time, the High Bickington headteacher became executive headteacher across the two schools. After a long period of stability in staffing, the last two years have seen considerable changes. From September 2016, the executive headteacher has returned to High Bickington as head of school. There is a temporary, acting executive headteacher in place across the Taw Valley Federation. The executive headteacher is the executive headteacher of Inspection report: High Bickington Church of England Primary School, 8–9 November 2016 Page 10 of 13 TEAM academy. An external review of governance took place in October 2016. The school runs an early years foundation stage unit, which includes part-time provision for Nursery-aged children from the age of three, and a Reception class. The early years unit is due to move to a new purpose-built site in September 2017. The vast majority of pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils eligible for the pupil premium funding is well below the national average. The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities is in line with the national average. The school manages a breakfast club. In 2016 the school met the government’s floor standard, which is the minimum expectation for pupils’ attainment and progress at the end of Year 6. The school does not meet requirements on the publication of information about the ‘pupil premium’, ‘curriculum content’ and the ‘sport premium’ on its 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 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.
