School Description

The academy is slightly smaller than the average-sized primary school. Mere Green Primary school converted to become an academy school in April 2013. When its predecessor school, Mere Green Primary, was last inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be requiring improvement. The school joined the Arthur Terry Learning Partnership. This is a multi-academy partnership consisting of three high schools and four primary schools, all within a few miles of each other in North Birmingham. The academy has a Nursery which children attend part-time, a Reception class where children attend fulltime, and eight other classes. There are two classes in Years 2, 3 and 6, and one in each of the other years. Almost two thirds of the pupils are White British, the remainder coming from a range of ethnic heritages. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language, about 1 in 10 pupils, is below average. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs, about a quarter, is above average. The school has a Speech, Language and Communication Base, which is accessed at present by 18 pupils from North Birmingham. About 40% of pupils, above the national average, are disadvantaged and supported by the pupil premium. The pupil premium is additional government funding for pupils who are looked after or known to be eligible for free school meals. The school has a higher than average turnover of pupils starting at times other than the start of the school year. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress. In addition to its links with other partnership academies, the academy has a range of other links to other primary schools in the local cluster. The academy has a much higher than average turnover of pupils starting or leaving at times other than entry into the Early Years Foundation Stage. The academy provides a breakfast club. There is also a privately run after-school club on the school site. In addition, the academy provides a number of after-school activities and sports clubs.

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.
