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 school does not meet requirements on the publication of information about the impact of funding for disadvantaged pupils for the last academic year on its website. The school is a smaller school than is found nationally. The majority of pupils are of White British background. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is higher than found nationally. The proportion of pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals is higher than is found nationally. The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities or are supported by an education, health and care plan, or statement of special educational needs, is average. At the time of the inspection, the headteacher had been in post for less than three weeks. Inspection report: Nelson Infant School, 19–20 January 2017 Page 11 of 13 Information about this inspection Inspectors observed lessons in all classes. Some joint observations were carried out with the headteacher. Inspectors looked at pupils’ books, school assessment information, the headteacher’s evaluation of teaching and learning, and a range of school documents. Inspector spoke with a small number of parents, took account of 37 responses to the Parent View, and met with some pupils from Years 1 and 2. Inspectors listened to a small number of pupils read. Inspectors spoke with a representative from the local authority and with four members of the governing body. Policies and procedures for the safeguarding of pupils were examined, including mandatory checks made during the recruitment of new staff.
