School Description

Kings Wood Primary School and Nursery is larger-than-average-sized primary school for pupils aged 3 to 11. There is an ARP for 15 pupils in key stages 1 and 2 who have education, health and care plans for special educational needs that relate to specific speech and language difficulties. This is funded by the local authority. Typically, all places are taken up. The proportion of pupils with SEND is above the national average. The proportion of pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds is above the national average. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is also above the national average. Approximately a third of pupils are from Asian or Asian British - Pakistani backgrounds and a similar proportion are from White British backgrounds. Inspection report: Kings Wood School and Nursery, 19–20 March 2019 Page 9 of 11 Information about this inspection The inspectors visited all classes in the school more than once to observe learning, speak with pupils and look at their work. Many of these visits were made jointly with the headteacher or deputy headteacher. Meetings were held with the headteacher, other senior and middle leaders, including the special educational needs coordinator and ARP leader, and other staff. The lead inspector also met with governors, including the chair of the governing body, and a representative from the local authority and a leader of the virtual school. Inspectors also took account of the views of the 33 members of staff who responded to Ofsted’s online staff survey. Inspectors spoke to pupils during lesson visits and during playtimes and lunchtimes. They met with a group of pupils formally and listened to some read. They also considered the 16 responses to the online Ofsted pupil questionnaire. Inspectors spoke to parents at the start of the first day of inspection and during the day. They took account of the 30 responses to Parent View, along with the 12 written responses. They also considered views expressed in a letter from a parent. The inspection team considered a wide range of documentation, including information available on the school’s website and records relating to pupils’ attainment, progress, attendance and behaviour. Information on governance, including minutes of governors’ meetings was scrutinised. The school’s self-evaluations and improvement plans were examined, along with records of the school’s work to keep pupils safe.

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 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 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.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.
