School Description

The school is an above average-sized primary school. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils, those eligible for the pupil premium, is above average. The pupil premium is additional funding for those pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those children who are looked after by the local authority. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups and those who speak English as an additional language has increased significantly since the previous inspection and is currently above average. There are 17 different languages spoken in the school. The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs is above average. The proportion of pupils who join or leave the school, other than at the start of the school year, is above average. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics by the end of Year 6. Early years provision in the Reception class is available full time. Seven maternity leaves have taken place and seven new teachers have joined the school since the previous inspection in 2011. The school works in close partnership with the pre-school provider which shares the site. However, this is not managed by the school’s governing body and is, therefore, subject to a separate inspection.

Catchment information

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.
