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

Pupils have a real sense of belonging at this welcoming infant school. They say that it feels ‘like one big family’. Pupils feel safe and are happy. They enjoy coming to school. Pupils know they should follow the school values to become a ‘Larkfields star’. They all know that the values are ‘being safe, being a team player, being an active learner and showing respect’. All pupils, no matter what year group, know the importance of fulfilling these values. There are high expectations for all pupils to achieve well. Pupils enjoy learning and can talk enthusiastically about their favourite subjects. They say teachers make learning ‘fun’. Pupils are proud of their school. Their positive behaviour is clear to see at all times. Pupils are polite and kind to each other and to adults. There is a zero-tolerance approach to bullying. When it does happen, leaders act quickly to stop it. The whole school community, from parents and carers to the trustees, wants pupils to be the best they can be. A parent commented, typical of many, that, ‘The school is friendly and welcoming and allows children to fulfil their potential whilst enjoying their learning.’

“Great school, great team”

unlock
"> Great school. I have 2 children who have been to this school and it has been an excellent experience. Great head and great teaching staff.
“A special place”

unlock
"> I'm shocked at the previous review, this holds no relation to the school that myself and my children have experienced. All the staff display a genuine love for the children and really know them well. Both my children have been taught well and have made remarkable progress especially in reading. The experiences that the school provides is second to none. I can whole heartily recommend this school. My children have thrived there.
“Not living up to Outstanding standard of education”

unlock
"> Our experience with this school to date hasn't been a positive one for these reasons: 1) Educating boys is not their strength. 2) Managing behaviours, very dated and negative effects on children. 3) Poor communication, assume we know when not long joined the school. 4) Head: in our experience, poor communication skills. Ofsted, what is happening? 9 years without an assessment is unacceptable.
