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. You are rigorous in your approach to improving teaching and learning but also take account of the emotional well-being of the staff and pupils. This results in a happy school, where staff and pupils thrive and parents feel involved. You have tackled the areas for improvement from the previous inspection well. The children currently in Reception are on track to reach the ambitious targets you have set. Overall outcomes in writing at the end of the early years have declined over the last 3 years. However, attainment is above that seen nationally and closer analysis shows that children made good progress from their starting points. Alongside governors, you set clear priorities for further improvement. You are not complacent and recognise that while standards are high, they can be improved further for some groups of pupils. Individual pupils’ progress is tracked, and swift actions are taken to support pupils who are falling behind. As a result, most pupils make good progress from their starting points in a range of subjects. However, you recognise that too few of the most able pupils make the progress necessary for them to achieve the higher standards in reading and in mathematics at the end of key stage 2. Governors have a wide variety of skills, which they use both to support and challenge the headteacher. They have high expectations and want the school to be the ‘best that it can be’. They receive good-quality information from you, and use this, plus first-hand experience of the school, to good effect. Parents are overwhelmingly supportive of the school. They feel involved, and particularly enjoy the opportunities they are given to attend school events. Parents speak of the ‘family feel’, and one said, ‘Children feel safe, secure and cared for as individuals.’ Pupils behave well at all times. They are polite and well-mannered, and show high levels of respect for adults and for one another. They were happy to talk and to share their work with me. Pupils know how to stay safe, including while online, and they are taught how to make the right choices. They say that there has been some bullying in the past but it was dealt with quickly by the teachers. Pupils have a good understanding of British values and other faiths. They are prepared well for life in modern Britain but this would be enhanced through more opportunities to learn about other cultures in Britain and the wider world. You acknowledge that this is an area which needs to develop further. Safeguarding is effective. Your governors ensure that all policies and procedures are in place, including checks on teachers and governors. Training for staff is comprehensive and up to date. The policies and procedures around safeguarding are clear and known to all staff. Staff know what to look for and who they would go to with concerns. You demonstrate a great determination to ensure that pupils are kept safe, and any unknown absences are followed up swiftly. Consequently, all safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose, and records are detailed and of a high quality. Inspection findings Pupils benefit from good teaching at all levels. Your staff use their good subject knowledge to ensure that teaching is matched well to pupils’ needs. Consequently, most pupils, including those who have special educational needs and/or disabilities, make good progress from their starting points. Teaching excites a love of learning, and teachers’ skilful use of questioning enables pupils to deepen their understanding. Pupils are attentive in lessons and ask their teachers questions to extend their learning. Teachers follow up on these questions and give your pupils a chance to find the answers. Pupils read fluently and with expression. They say that they enjoy reading and that they are encouraged to read at home and at school. A key line of enquiry for this inspection was the progress that the most able pupils make during their time in key stage 2. Although a greater proportion of the most able pupils are now on track to reach the higher standards in reading, writing and mathematics, around a third of the most able pupils are still not making the necessary progress to reach these higher standards.
