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. Since you became headteacher in September 2014, you have successfully created a positive culture of learning, for both pupils and staff. You set high standards for how you want staff to conduct themselves and lead by example. Staff are enthusiastic, welcoming, approachable and open to new challenges, because you have created a safe environment, where everyone is valued. In turn, pupils are well supported, happy and love coming to school. Parents and carers value the special atmosphere you have created. Along with your deputy headteacher, you have pushed forward improvements across the school and built on the strengths identified during the previous inspection. You have been meticulous in seeking ways to improve staff performance. Work with other local schools offers your staff opportunities to work with other colleagues seeking solutions to common issues. You compare the performance of pupils at your school with similar schools within your area. You use this information to support your own school improvement work. Staff take part in research work and use this to review and improve your own practice. You work alongside teachers to help them achieve the best outcomes for pupils. As a result, staff are happy and enthusiastic and standards are high. Staff morale is high and everyone works together towards the same vision.
