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 headteacher was appointed in September 2015. The school is larger than the average-sized primary school. The school meets the current government floor standards, which set the minimum standard expected for pupils at the end of Year 6 in reading, writing and mathematics. A large proportion of pupils come from minority ethnic backgrounds. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is above the national average. The proportion of pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals is above that found nationally. The proportion of pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities is above average. The proportion of pupils who are supported by an education, health and care plan, or statement of special educational needs, is below average. Inspection report: Lainesmead Primary School, 9–10 May 2018 Page 10 of 12 Information about this inspection Inspectors observed learning in lessons across the school. Some observations were undertaken jointly with senior leaders. Inspectors also observed pupils’ behaviour around the school and at break and lunchtime. An inspector also visited the breakfast and after-school club provision. Meetings were held with the headteacher and senior leaders, including the mathematics and English leader, the person responsible for safeguarding, a local authority representative and the leader with responsibility for pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities. Inspectors also held a meeting with five governors, including the chair of the governing body. Inspectors spoke with pupils informally during their break and lunchtimes and in class. They also held a more formal discussion and listened to two groups of pupils read. Inspectors examined a range of documentation provided by the school, including minutes of meetings of the governing body, the school’s self-evaluation document, the school’s improvement plan and documentation relating to safeguarding of pupils. Inspectors examined a sample of pupils’ books from across the school jointly with the headteacher and senior leaders. Inspectors spoke with parents as they brought their children to school in the morning and considered 58 responses to the Ofsted online survey, Parent View. They also considered the 71 responses to the pupil survey and the 28 responses to the staff survey.
