School Description

Newcroft Primary is smaller than the average-sized primary school. It has two classes in Nursery, Reception and Year 1, one class in Years 2 and 3 and three mixed age classes in Years 4/5. There is no Year 6. The Early Years children are taught in a Nursery unit and a double Reception class. The vast majority of children are White British, with a very small, but growing number, from minority ethnic backgrounds. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported at school action is average, and the proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is below average. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium (the additional funding allocated by the government, for example, for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals) is lower than average. In September 2013, the governors appointed a new headteacher. In September 2014 they appointed a new deputy headteacher, a new leader of the Early Years Foundation Stage and a new special educational needs coordinator. In addition, one new teacher started at the school in September 2014. The school is a member of the Symphony Primary Schools Partnership, which is a group of 13 Leicestershire schools who have jointly agreed their approach to the requirements of the new national curriculum and an associated assessment system. The school is also a member of the Shepshed Learning Partnership. A residential visit for 29 Year 4/5 pupils took place during the inspection. There is a before school breakfast club, and an after school club that is managed by the governing body, and formed part of the inspection.

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 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 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.
