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

Holy Souls Roman Catholic Primary School is a school where all pupils are welcome, irrespective of their faith or background. Pupils benefit from the positive relationships that they enjoy with each other and with staff. Pupils told inspectors that their friendships in school help to make them feel safe and happy. Leaders and staff are ambitious for all pupils to be successful academically and personally. Pupils, and children in the early years, gain confidence from the positive encouragement that they receive from staff. This supports pupils to be more resilient when they find learning difficult. They achieve well. Staff have high expectations of pupils’ behaviour. Pupils treat each other and staff with respect. Pupils behave well in school and lessons are rarely disturbed. This allows pupils to get on with their work without interruption. There are effective systems in place for pupils to report any concerns to staff. On the rare occasions that bullying occurs, leaders deal with it quickly and effectively. Pupils make a positive contribution to their local community. For example, pupils help to organise fundraising events for local charities, including food banks. Pupil librarians oversee the running of the school library. These leadership opportunities help to build pupils’ character and prepare them well for life beyond the classroom.
