School Description

The school is larger than the average-sized secondary school. The vast majority of pupils attending the school are of White British heritage. The proportion of pupils who are disadvantaged and receive support from the pupil premium is just below the national average. The proportion of pupils with SEND is above average. A new chair of the local governing body took up post in October 2018. The school is a member of the Abbey Multi-academy Trust. Responsibility for the school rests with trustees, who delegate this to the local governing board. The mission Inspection report: Lightcliffe Academy, 6–7 November 2018 Page 10 of 13 statement of the trust is ‘to work in partnership to educate, nurture and empower’. The trust website is www.abbeymat.co.uk/our-vision.html. Students in Years 12 and 13 are part of the Calderdale post-16 partnership. Some students attend other providers for lessons, and vice versa. Currently, the school uses part-time and full-time alternative education provision at The Pivot Academy in Cleckheaton and ‘On-track’. A very small number of pupils are supported by the local authority teams with responsibility for pupils who do not, or cannot, attend full-time education due to long-term medical needs or behaviour.

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.
