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. Through skilful delegation, and clear lines of responsibility, you lead and manage the school well. Your tight-knit team works very closely together but staff are never afraid to challenge each other to ensure that pupils receive the best possible education. They are always open to exploring new initiatives and seeking further specialist advice and professional development. You are exceptionally well supported by your very knowledgeable chair of governors and members of the governing body. The rigorous way in which they regularly check and monitor the school’s effectiveness leaves ‘no stones unturned’. At the time of the previous inspection you were asked to ensure that the most able pupils in key stage 1 were consistently challenged in their writing. Since then, national test results, and the work in the current pupils’ books, show that the most able writers achieve well. This is because they are given regular opportunities to write at length about interesting topics and subjects. You were also asked to make sure that pupils were clear about what they were learning and that they understood the feedback they were given about their work. When we visited classes together, it was evident that pupils know what they are learning and are clear about what they have to do to improve their work. As recommended at the time of the previous inspection report, the school has updated its website and this fully meets requirements. Governors were asked to provide more regular opportunities for parents and carers to meet with them to express their concerns and queries. Since then, governors have ensured that they make themselves available at parents’ meetings and at different school events. They have worked with staff to improve the quality, regularity and tone of newsletters and have been proactive in the introduction of a school social media site. Parent surveys over the past three years show that the improvements to communication between home and school have been well received. Governors respond appropriately to parental complaints, closely adhering to local authority procedures. This ensures they are dealt with in a timely manner. Governor visits to school, regular newsletters and meetings with pupils also ensure that they are kept in touch with day-to-day life in school. Many parents are very happy with the school. As one parent explained, ‘Both my children really enjoy school and are doing well. The teaching and support staff are extremely caring and work hard to make school a positive experience for them all.’ Nevertheless, you are fully aware that a few parents still remain dissatisfied with aspects of the school. You and your governors try different ways to improve the communication between home and school and most are successful. Nevertheless, you know there is still a way to go to engage and work positively with the very small proportion of families who are unhappy with aspects of the school. Safeguarding is effective. The leadership team has ensured that all safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose. All staff and governors have completed the relevant training and apply all aspects of this to their everyday work in school. Recruiting and vetting procedures are thorough and systematically maintained. Staff know their pupils and their families very well and are quick to spot any potential safeguarding concerns. The school’s close links with specialist agencies ensures that swift support can be given when required. Pupils report that they feel very safe in school. This is endorsed by the majority of parents and summed up by one parent who explained that it is ‘an incredibly caring school’ where ‘teachers go the extra mile for each and every child’. Pupils explain that when they have a worry or concern they are extremely confident that the pastoral support worker will always find time to discuss and help them sort out their problems. Pupils are adamant that there is no persistent bullying or anti-social behaviour in school. They explain that occasionally there are minor disputes with their friends but these are always quickly resolved. Pupils demonstrate a strong knowledge of keeping themselves free from harm when using the internet and are fully aware of the dangers of using social media sites. A very small minority of parents who completed Parent View, the online inspection questionnaire, felt that their children did not feel safe in school and were not well looked after. Leaders know that they need to communicate more closely with these families to resolve their concerns.
