School Description

The school has been through recent changes to leadership and governance. Staff say the new trust is bringing increased training opportunities and a greater sense of purpose. Leaders realise there is much to do to ensure that all pupils learn to read as soon as they should. Most pupils enjoy the topic-based curriculum, which makes links between pupils’ learning in different subjects. However, pupils with lower prior attainment, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), are not always supported well enough. Staff do not have equally high expectations for all pupils. This means that some are not fully involved in their learning and, at times, they switch off. The gap widens between the most and least able pupils. Pupils show respect for each other and are well mannered. Adults create a nurturing environment built on positive relationships. Pupils say they feel safe and are comfortable to approach staff with any concerns. They trust adults to deal with any rare incidents of bullying swiftly and effectively. Pupils develop important skills for life. They enjoy responsibilities, such as supporting the headteacher with planning and delivering assemblies. They learn to overcome difficulties, such as with their ‘marvellous mistakes’ in mathematics. They enjoy yoga sessions which support their mental well-being.

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 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.
