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. This school is led well. You are doing a good job. Your leadership is clear-sighted and organised and you are supported by a capable senior team and an informed governing body. Across the school, staff and pupils know that leaders set high expectations and that everyone is expected to take on responsibility and do their best. Since the previous inspection, there have been some significant staff changes, including your appointment as headteacher in September 2015. The handover arrangements from the previous headteacher to you were managed efficiently, which helped you to build on existing strengths and drive further improvements at a purposeful pace. You have not lost any time in creating a sense of team spirit and shared vision. Staff, pupils and parents all have a say and an influence in shaping school policy but there is no doubt that you steer the direction. Doing the best for pupils is at the heart of all decision making. This is the guiding light for school leaders. You and other leaders have a well-informed understanding of the quality of teaching and learning and an accurate view of the school’s current performance. School leaders and governors are ambitious for staff and pupils. Successes are recognised but, equally, leaders and staff are open and honest about areas where further improvements can be made. Teaching staff receive clear and specific feedback about their work. Teachers get the chance to learn from one another, to share strong practice and receive support and guidance if necessary. Consequently, teaching continues to be effective and current pupils’ progress across early years, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 is good. Over the past three years, the strong provision seen in the early years at the time of the previous inspection has been maintained and standards at the end of Key Stage 1 have risen steadily. At the end of Key Stage 2, standards in different subjects have varied. Pupils’ performance in writing has been consistently above average, while standards in reading and mathematics dipped in the 2014 tests and then improved in 2015. During this inspection, the reasons behind the variations in Key Stage 2 results in different subjects were examined. It is evident that your work to maintain standards in writing and push standards higher in reading has worked. You know there is still more to be done to make sure that all pupils do as well as possible in mathematics, especially disadvantaged pupils. Safeguarding is effective. This inspection found that the school’s safeguarding arrangements and procedures operate properly and promptly. Training is up to date and record keeping is as it should be. Staff understand the reasons why such systems are in place and their responsibility to put pupil’s safety first. Adults at the school can explain what they would do if they had a concern. Pupils’ attendance is tracked with great care and attention and the routines for following up absence are efficient and effective. Pupils say they feel valued and safe at school and that adults will always help them, if needs be. Parents and pupils express high levels of confidence in the school’s work to keep everyone safe.
