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

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. This is because you and your staff are rigorous in evaluating the effectiveness of your work. You identify precisely what needs to be improved and conduct research to identify what approaches have been successful in tackling a specific issue and how these might be adapted to your own circumstances. Most importantly, you evaluate the impact of any project that you put in place. You compare pupils’ results at the beginning and the end, to make sure that time, money and resources have been used to good effect. In order to get an objective view of the impact of any project, you ask external staff to evaluate the work. You draw very effectively on the expertise of your partners in the multi-academy trust and the local consortium of schools to help you with this work. In turn, you share your best practice with them. In addition, you ensure that successful practice in one part of the school is disseminated to other staff. For example, the model that you used to bring about rapid improvement in science in key stage 2 is now being adapted to tackle the underperformance in science at key stage 1. Where necessary, you also draw on the support available regionally and nationally. You are doing this currently to develop the quality of teaching and learning in mathematics further. The data and information that we discussed show that you have been able to bring about clear improvements in several aspects of the school’s work. For example, you have improved the progress of pupils in key stage 1 and pupils’ attainment in key stage 2. However, we agreed that there is still further work to be done to raise the attainment and progress of disadvantaged pupils. The responsibility for raising standards is clearly shared across several levels of the school. Senior leaders work very closely and effectively together. You also have a strong team of subject coordinators who conduct regular analyses of pupils’ progress in all subjects, to ensure that the breadth of the curriculum is matched by depth of learning. You have worked very closely with parents to improve attendance, which is now broadly in line with national averages. Every one of the parents I spoke to was highly complimentary about the school, particularly about the care shown by staff. The school is a very well ordered, purposeful community where staff work well together and have the best interests of the pupils at heart. Behaviour in and around the school is very good. I was particularly impressed to see how quickly the children in Year 1 had settled into the new routines, when they had only been in school a week. The pupils relate well to each other and to staff. They show respect for the building, which is kept spotlessly clean by the estates management team. The school has strong governance. The directors are dedicated and knowledgeable. They have a detailed and accurate view of the school’s strengths and areas for development and hold you and your colleagues rigorously and regularly to account. They agreed that there is a need to refine the way in which they assess the impact of the physical education and sports funding. Safeguarding is effective. The leadership team has ensured that all safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose. Your records are up to date and detailed. The pupils who met with me said that they enjoy coming to school. They feel safe both in school and on the way to and from school. Bullying is rare and, when it does happen, is dealt with effectively. Pupils know who should be contacted if they have any worries and are confident that they will receive any necessary help. Through their work in computing and science, they have been taught how to use electrical equipment safely and how to keep themselves safe when using the internet and social media. They have all been taught to swim. They know about road safety but are less sure about how to keep themselves safe near railway lines. Their views reflect those of the pupils who responded to the online questionnaire. All the parents who met me and the great majority of those who responded to Parent View said that their children are safe and happy at the school. All the staff who responded to the questionnaire were also confident about the pupils’ safety. The staff I spoke to knew precisely what to do if they had any concerns about safeguarding and had clearly been well trained.
