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

Everyone is part of the team at Little Melton. Pupils help each other in the classroom and at playtime. Pupils behave well because they know it is the right thing to do. They want to do their best for their friends and their teachers. As a result, every day is a productive and happy one at the school. Pupils’ understanding flourishes because the curriculum is detailed, interesting and taught well. Teachers aptly show pupils how to write about what they have learned. Pupils read widely. Carefully planned curriculum days show pupils how they can apply their knowledge in fun ways. Pupils achieve well. They leave school eager for more knowledge and looking forward to the future. An extensive extra-curricular offer shows pupils how the world works and to what they can aspire. This has been put together by dedicated adults. It harnesses multiple opportunities in the community. For example, a chance to meet medical students at the local hospital. Visitors from all walks of life share their knowledge and expertise. A rota of clubs gives pupils a range of opportunities to try their hands at different kinds of sport, music and art.
