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. You became headteacher in February 2017 following a period of significant changes in the school’s leadership and governance. The local authority provided you with effective support during the early stages of your headship and together you accurately evaluated the strengths and weaknesses of the school. You acted swiftly and effectively to tackle weaknesses in teaching and to secure stronger leadership of the curriculum. As a result, teaching is now consistently effective across the school and current pupils are making good progress. Staff share your determination to provide the best for every child and are unanimous in feeling well supported and proud to work at the school. Parents and carers commend the school wholeheartedly. They speak highly of the improvements you have made and appreciate the welcoming and caring ethos of the school. They value the approachability of staff and your work to include them as partners in their children’s education. One comment that ‘ever since the headteacher took over the school has massively improved’ was typical of many parents’ views. The governing body has undergone considerable change since the previous inspection. Most governors have taken up their posts since your appointment. Governors have carefully evaluated their skills and undertaken training to help them to understand and carry out their statutory responsibilities. Although some governors are new to their roles, they are well informed about the quality of education at the school. They use their visits and the information that you provide to hold leaders to account for pupils’ progress with increasing rigour. For example, they have challenged leaders to strengthen teaching for the most able pupils so that a higher proportion achieve the higher standards in writing and mathematics. You have provided high-quality professional development for teachers by making use of links with other schools locally and training opportunities within the local authority. This has helped those who are also middle leaders to establish high expectations of teaching in the areas they lead and to share good practice with their colleagues. Middle leaders work with you to make purposeful checks on the quality of teaching. This helps them to check what is working well and to provide focused support and training for staff. You have been largely successful in addressing the areas for improvement identified at the last inspection. Leaders have set higher expectations for the teaching of writing. Current pupils are now making strong progress in writing across the school and can apply their skills to extended pieces of work successfully. Leaders evaluate the school accurately and have produced comprehensive plans for improvement. These plans set out the correct priorities and identify clear timescales. However, the ways of measuring the effectiveness of these actions are not always explicitly focused on the improvements they will make to pupils’ outcomes. Pupils enjoy positive relationships with adults and trust that these adults will listen to their concerns and keep them safe. The school’s work to promote pupils’ personal development and their understanding of fundamental British values is highly effective. The curriculum includes learning about a wide range of faiths and cultures. Consequently, pupils learn to challenge discrimination and are well prepared for life in modern Britain. Pupils told me that the school helps them to lead healthy lifestyles and to demonstrate leadership through the many additional responsibilities on offer. These include being ‘playground leaders’ and ‘safety warriors’ who help keep others safe. They are proud of their school and speak of how the Christian values help them to ‘be kind and patient and never give up’. Safeguarding is effective. The culture of safeguarding in the school is strong. Leaders make sure that staff know their responsibilities and keep them up to date with statutory guidance on concerns such as peer-to-peer abuse. Staff report concerns promptly, and you follow these up with the relevant agencies in a timely manner. You know the needs of families well and work with them to provide help as soon as needs arise. Records are well maintained and thorough, including pre-employment vetting checks on staff. Pupils told me that they feel safe and supported in school. They say that bullying is extremely rare and that adults deal with any concerns about bullying and poor behaviour quickly. They have a good understanding of how to stay safe online and have benefited from learning about fire safety and how to keep safe near roads.
