School Description

The current principal and senior leadership team have been in place since 2016. The school is a member of the Ormiston Academies Trust. There is a local governing body to whom the trustees of the MAT delegate responsibility for the day-to-day operations of the school. The trustees are responsible for compliance with the academy’s funding agreement. The proportion of pupils who are eligible for the pupil premium funding is well above the national average. The proportion of pupils with SEND is above the national average. Pupils enter with attainment that is significantly lower than that expected for their age. At the time of the inspection, the school was running a time-limited trial of teaching a number of Year 8 boys in a single-sex group for English. This practice is capable of amounting to segregation by gender contrary to the Equality Act 2010. However, the school’s rationale for this policy is that boys achieve less well in English than girls and Inspection report: Ormiston Denes Academy, 26–27 June 2019 Page 9 of 12 they want to establish whether they can improve boys’ achievement with this approach. Inspectors concluded that segregation by gender is, in this case, reasonable and proportionate to remedy the concerns about boys’ achievement. Therefore, it meets the requirements for the positive action exemption under section 158 of the Equality Act 2010 and is not unlawful. The school makes use of four other education providers: Harbour PRU, Lowestoft; Old Warren House, Lowestoft; Attic Walpole PRU, Halesworth; and Attic Hillside PRU, Bungay.

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.
