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.

Pupils are extremely proud members of their school community, and they would eagerly recommend their school to others. The school is inclusive and diverse. Pupils treat each other respectfully. They value the strong working relationships that they have with staff. Staff support them with their learning and help them to succeed. Pupils are happy and safe. Staff have high expectations of all pupils. Pupils behave well and they work hard in lessons. Pupils work well together with their peers, as well as on their own. They do not disrupt learning for others. Bullying is very rare, and pupils said that when it does happen staff take it seriously. Pupils know that they can speak to staff if they have any worries or concerns. Parents and carers are typically positive about the school and the leadership. They attend regular curriculum workshops, and have access to phonics videos recorded by staff. This helps them to understand and engage with the curriculum, and support their children at home. Pupils enjoy looking after the school chickens. It gives them a great sense of responsibility. Pupils have access to a range of clubs and enrichment activities. Leaders offer residential trips for pupils. They aim for these trips to develop pupils’ independence.

“Great school”

"> Our two daughters have attended Joseph Hood Primary school since nursery. We are so impressed with the standard of teaching, our children are thriving both academically and personally. This is a warm and welcoming school where every child is treated as an individual. We would highly recommend.
“Great”

"> My son just finished Reception and we are very pleased with JH school! Dedicated and caring staff. Great nurturing atmosphere. We feel that teachers and staff are going above and beyond for the benefit of students.
“Lovely happy school”

unlock
"> This really is a lovely school, with a committed and caring staff and an active, engaged PTA. We came to the area from overseas and my son was about a year behind his classmates when he joined. I can see however, that he has caught on massively. The wraparound care (0745 - 1800) provided in-house is excellent, and I concur with other reviewers who talk about the caring atmosphere. It is a respectful, calm and organised place, and I am extremely happy we have a place for my son there.
“Happy School; happy, polite, well rounded pupils.”

unlock
"> My husband and I chose this school for our son. He started in nursery and he is now in KS2. We have been extremely satisfied with this school. He loves going to school, is happy and is a confident individual. The teachers cater for all pupils' needs and there is such a caring atmosphere across the whole school. I cannot praise this school enough. Staff are approachable and other pupils are polite and friendly. This school is certainly teaching to ensure all children make academic progress but alongside is also teaching children to become valuable citizens of the future. I would recommend this school to anyone.
“A great, friendly school with a "small village school" vibe”

unlock
"> My son is so happy and confident at this school - he is a bright boy whose needs are extremely well catered for. The staff are so friendly and they really care about helping their students meet and exceed their full potential. The international student population reflects the real world and not just the middle-class mindset. The PTA are extremely welcoming and the headteacher is so approachable. We couldn't be happier.
