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

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. Your impressive leadership of the school, supported by the executive headteacher and senior leadership team of the Coastal Federation, has enabled you to build a strong staff team and improve pupils’ outcomes. Your detailed analysis of performance information, combined with your understanding of the context of the school, has resulted in accurate self-evaluation. You rapidly recognised the key areas of teaching, learning and assessment and the curriculum that required development following the last inspection. Teachers and support staff speak with great enthusiasm about the quality of training they have received, particularly in teaching mathematics. One teacher said: ‘The training has helped build my confidence to teach maths. I’m much clearer about what the expectations are, and we’ve really raised our game as teachers and support staff.’ Staff know precisely what current school development priorities are, for example to improve outcomes for boys and disadvantaged pupils, particularly those pupils capable of achieving greater depth in their knowledge, skills and understanding. Another teacher said: ‘We’ve completely re-vamped the curriculum and the children are keen to learn because the new topics really interest them.’ Pupils’ enthusiasm and commitment to learning was evident when we visited every classroom. It was clear when we scrutinised pupils’ books that all groups of pupils are making strong progress from their starting points in mathematics and writing. You have addressed the issues from the last inspection. You, the phase one leader and the English leader have ensured a much stronger focus on the teaching of phonics in Reception. This highly structured and systematic approach has improved reading outcomes for the children who completed their Reception Year in July 2018. These children are currently in Year 1. I read with a sample of lower and higher achievers, all of whom confidently used their phonic skills to read new words. You, the phase one leader and the English leader rightly recognise that children would learn to read even more rapidly if you strengthened your liaison regarding the teaching of phonics with the early years provision in the onsite children’s centre pre-school. This is a target in your current school improvement plan. Although your self-evaluation is detailed and accurately identifies strengths and weaknesses, your school improvement plan is too complicated. In addition, you have already achieved many of the targets identified. You and the lead teacher of the specialist resource base (SRB) have a strong understanding of how to manage this provision. However, you both recognise that successful reintegration to their home school could be achieved more rapidly for some pupils. Most parents speak very highly of the school and the changes you have made since the last inspection. One parent told me they could not speak highly enough of how you and the family support team have listened and taken action to support their children’s learning. A few parents raised concerns about bullying but said that you and the teachers deal with this rapidly. All commented on how communication between home and school has improved over the last year. Most pupils love coming to school every day. One pupil told me: ‘I like the teachers and teaching assistants because when we are doing topic, maths or English, they really explain it good.’ Pupils like the focus on improving how they learn using ‘the joy of not knowing’ (JONK). Several pupils were very proud to explain their special JONK certificates. One pupil said: ‘I got one for being reflective; that means thinking about my learning.’ Pupils say they feel safe in school. Occasionally, children are ‘mean’ to each other but adults sort this out very quickly. Governors are actively involved in school improvement and, consequently, know the school and the pupils well. They provide effective challenge as well as support to you and the federation’s senior leadership team. Safeguarding is effective. You and the governors have ensured that safeguarding processes and procedures meet requirements. All staff understand and are confident to use the new computer-based safeguarding procedures. They find the monthly safeguarding newsletters particularly helpful. You have successfully transferred your careful and detailed records of safeguarding concerns to the new computer-based system. Staff are particularly pleased that the new computer-based system alerts them to the outcome of referrals they make. You make effective use of the local authority’s advice and referral services.
