School Description

This is a much larger than average-sized primary school. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic heritages is below average and fewer pupils than average speak English as an additional language. Almost all pupils are White British. About one in 10 pupils is disabled or has special educational needs. This is lower than found in most schools. About one in fourteen pupils is eligible for the pupil premium. This is additional funding provided for pupils who are looked after by the local authority or known to be eligible for free school meals. This is lower than the national average. The school has specially resourced provision, managed by the governing body, for up to 11 pupils identified with autistic spectrum disorders (ASD). These pupils have access to an additional teaching room with an outdoor area. There is an on-site nursery, which is managed by the school's governing body. Children attend nursery on a part time basis, with a morning session for one group of children and an afternoon session for another group of children. The Early Years Foundation Stage is made up of four classes. Reception children attend school full time. The school is expanding from a three-form entry school to four-form entry. In order to accommodate the growing number of pupils, there have been extensive building works since the previous inspection. In addition to this planned expansion, there is an additional Year 2 class. Before-school and after-school care is privately managed. Old Bexley CE Primary School has been in formal collaboration with Hillsgrove Primary School since April 2012. While the two schools have retained independent governing bodies, one executive headteacher has oversight of the two schools, with separate heads of school on each site. Since the previous inspection the headteacher has been appointed executive headteacher. The head of school was appointed in April 2012. She was previously the deputy headteacher of this school. The head of school is supported by two assistant headteachers. They were previously key stage managers in this school. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.

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 last School Census (released annually in July).

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 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 last 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.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.
