School Description

The school does not meet requirements on the publication of information about pupil premium funding and pupils’ performance information on its website. This school is larger than the average-sized primary school. The headteacher has been in post since September 2015. There is currently a temporary deputy headteacher and assistant headteacher. There have been 12 new teaching staff since September 2016. There has been considerable change to the governing body since the last inspection. The school has three buildings, for Reception, key stage 1 and key stage 2. They are all on the same site. The proportion of pupils for whom the pupil premium provides support is above the national average. Inspection report: Hillbourne Primary School, 23–24 March 2017 Page 9 of 12 The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities is above the national average. There is a breakfast club that is managed by the school. Children in Reception attend full time. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress in English and mathematics.

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.

“Hillbourne Primary School”
AUTHOR:
"> I moved to Poole recently in 2014, and was surfing the net for schools. I found Hillbourne. Lots of people commented it wasnt a good school, but that was based on opinion over 20 years ago. I visited the school 4 times, twice on the open day and then twice with the wonderful Headteacher, Mr. Taylor, to see the other years. The school is open and very peaceful. Mr. Taylor was so helpful, informative and very open about the schools previous reputation. He answered all of my concerns, which was very reassuring. As we walked through both Early Years and Junior years buildings, all of the children said hello to Mr. Taylor. The school is friendly and the students are very well behaved. I visited a special advanced maths class where the students said they liked it because they were getting bored in the regular class because it was easy. I thought that was outstanding. My son's reception teacher is wonderful. She helps my son push a little further and expands his knowledge of reading and writing to the level I wanted. The school is really lovely. I feel complete satisfaction that I chose Hillbourne. Don't rely on opinions of Hillbourne that are based on 20 years ago. Go see it, meet the teachers, go as many times as you like, you will be very reassured and satisfied. (One last point: there's plenty of parking around the school, so no stress when dropping off or picking up!)
