School Description

Manor Way Primary School converted to academy status in October 2015 and this is its first inspection since conversion. The predecessor school was inspected in January 2014 and was judged to require improvement. There have been significant changes to governance, leadership and staffing since conversion. The school is one of five primary and three secondary schools in the Windsor Academy Trust (WAT). The chief and deputy chief executive officers of WAT, together with the board of directors, appointed LAB members to the school’s local advisory board. The headteacher joined the school in September 2016. Other senior and middle leaders have also been appointed since the school became an academy. Each school in the trust has its own local advisory board of governors. The board of directors, through its scheme of delegation and funding agreement with the DfE and the Education Funding Agency, has direct oversight of all the schools across the trust. Inspection report: Manor Way Primary Academy, 11–12 September 2018 Page 12 of 15 The board has direct responsibility for the management and devolvement of governance, finances and human resources for all its schools. Manor Way is smaller than most primary schools. Most pupils are from White British backgrounds and others have a range of heritages. Very few pupils join the school speaking English as an additional language. The school’s early years provision comprises a pre-school class for up to 26 three-yearold children and one Reception class for four- and five-year-olds. The children in the pre-school (Manor Way Minis) attend either part-time or full-time, with flexible arrangements to accommodate parents’ needs. The trust and governors have direct oversight and responsibility for this pre-school provision. The proportion of pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities is in line with that of most schools and includes mainly pupils who have moderate learning difficulties and/or emotional or behavioural needs, including autism spectrum disorder. The proportion of pupils eligible for pupil premium funding is well below average.

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 last School Census (released annually in July).

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 last 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.
