School Description

Meadows First School is a larger than average primary school. It is co-located with Parkside Middle School. The school runs a resource base for pupils with an autism spectrum disorder. Pupils from the first school and the middle school attend the base for some of their education. Most pupils who attend the school are White British. The proportion of pupils with SEND, including those with an education, health and care plan, is much higher than the national average. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils is lower than the national average. The school has recently been reaccredited with the Early Years Quality Mark and the Eco-Schools green flag award for the fifth time. The school has recently achieved the ‘Rights Respecting Schools’ silver award. In December 2018 the school was awarded the platinum School Games Mark Award. Inspection report: Meadows First School, 12–13 March 2019 Page 11 of 13 Information about this inspection Inspectors observed learning in all year groups and classes in the school. Some lessons were jointly observed with senior leaders. An inspector listened to a group of pupils read. Inspectors met with a group of pupils and staff to talk about their experience of Meadows First School. Another group of pupils gave an inspector a tour of the school and talked about their work. Inspectors held meetings with the headteacher, senior leaders and subject and phase leaders. The lead inspector met with six members of the governing body, including the chair of governors. Inspectors looked at pupils’ work in books across a range of different subjects, both in the classroom and as a separate work-scrutiny activity. The lead inspector spoke on the phone with a school improvement adviser from Worcestershire local authority. Inspectors spoke to parents on the playground at the start of the day and considered the 89 responses to Parent View, Ofsted’s online survey. They also took into account the 57 free-text responses to the survey. Inspectors looked at the 31 responses to the confidential staff questionnaire. There were no responses to Ofsted’s pupil questionnaire. Inspectors looked at a range of evidence, including the school’s website, self-evaluation, improvement plans, monitoring records, progress and attainment information, governing body minutes and external checks and awards. A range of information relating to safeguarding was considered, including pupil files, training, behaviour and attendance records and the school’s checks on staff recruitment.

Pupil heat map key

01905 822700

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.
