School Description

Marlborough Infant and Nursey School is larger than most primary schools. All of the pupils are from minority ethnic groups. The biggest groups are Pakistani, African and Bangladeshi. Over seven out of every 10 pupils speak English as an additional language, which is much higher than in other schools nationally. Approximately one out of every six pupils has special educational needs and/or disabilities, which is higher than in other schools nationally. Just over a quarter of the pupils are disadvantaged, which is higher than the national average. The school deprivation indicator is much higher than the national average. The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website. Children in the Nursery class attend part time and children in the Reception classes attend full time. Inspection report: Marlborough Infant and Nursery School, 3–4 November 2016 Page 9 of 11 Information about this inspection The inspection team observed 16 lessons or part-lessons, including examples of teaching in every year group. Some of these teaching observations were carried out jointly with senior leaders. Meetings were held with the headteacher, deputy headteacher, senior leaders, middle leaders, staff and governors. The lead inspector had a telephone conversation with a representative of the local authority who works with the school. The inspection team looked at pupils’ workbooks with a senior leader in a range of subjects to establish the progress and quality of pupils’ work over time. The inspection team talked to pupils during their lessons and at playtimes to find out their views about the school. The inspection team heard pupils read and observed their behaviour in lessons, around the school and at playtimes. Informal discussions were held with parents to gauge their views of the school. There were not enough responses to Ofsted’s online questionnaire (Parent View), although any comments that parents made during the inspection were considered. The results of the school’s own parent questionnaire were taken into account. The inspection team looked at a wide range of documents, including the school’s plans for improvement, external monitoring reports, records of checks made by leaders and information on pupils’ progress and outcomes. They also scrutinised records relating to behaviour, attendance and safeguarding.

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.
