School Description

The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website. Northbury is a very large primary school formed from the amalgamation of the infant and junior school in January 2014. The headteacher of the junior school was appointed as headteacher of the new primary school. Most pupils come from minority ethnic backgrounds and a high proportion speak English as an additional language. The largest groups are of Black African or Pakistani origin. A smaller number come from White British, Caribbean and Indian backgrounds. The proportion of pupils for whom the school receives the pupil premium is above average. The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities is broadly similar to most schools. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which are the minimum standards for pupils’ attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics at the end of key stage 2. Inspection report: Northbury Primary School, 6–7 December 2016 Page 9 of 11 Information about this inspection The inspectors visited all classes during the inspection at least once and several were visited twice. Observations were undertaken jointly with the headteacher and both deputy headteachers. Inspectors observed an assembly, morning and lunchtime breaks and activities before school. A meeting was held with members of the school council and two other groups of pupils. Many other pupils were spoken with during lessons and breaktimes. The inspectors also listened to some pupils reading. The inspection team met a group of governors and the local authority adviser. Inspectors held meetings with a several school staff, including the subject leaders in English and mathematics. Inspectors took account of the responses on Parent View (Ofsted’s online survey), the school’s own surveys of parents and spoke informally with a number of parents. Inspectors looked at a range of documents, including pupils’ work; the school data on progress; school improvement planning; leaders’ checks on the quality of teaching; external checks on the quality of education; records relating to behaviour and attendance and documents relating to safeguarding Inspection team Grace Marriott, lead inspector Ofsted Inspector Helena Mills Ofsted Inspector Andrew Rigby Ofsted Inspector Roger Easthope Ofsted Inspector Inspection report: Northbury Primary School, 6–7 December 2016 Page 10 of 11 Any complaints about the inspection or the report should be made following the procedures set out in the guidance ‘Raising concerns and making a complaint about Ofsted’, which is available from Ofsted’s website: www.gov.uk/government/publications/complaints-about-ofsted.

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.
