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

This school is much smaller than the average-sized primary school. Pupils are taught in three mixed-age classes. The school offers ‘flexi-school’ arrangements to 10 pupils currently. This offer is subject to approval by the headteacher but allows pupils to be taught at home for one or two days per week. For the remainder of the week, these pupils are taught in school. This arrangement is aimed at integrating younger or previously home-schooled pupils into full-time education, involving parents more in the education of their child and helping families who have to travel long distances to get to school. Children in the early years are taught in a mixed class of Reception and Year 1 pupils. Most Reception Year children attend full time but some attend part time as they are taught at home under the school’s flexi-schooling arrangement. All pupils are of White British heritage and none speak English as an additional language. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils known to be eligible for pupil premium funding is well below the national average. The pupil premium is additional government funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those in the care of the local authority. The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs or disability is well below the national average. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress by the end of Year 6. The headteacher is employed on a part-time contract for three fifths of the week. The deputy headteacher is acting headteacher for the rest of the week. Since the previous inspection, the number of pupils on roll has increased from 24 to 42 and most teachers are new to the school. The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website.
