School Description

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the previous inspection. You, your senior team, staff and governors seek to provide a nurturing yet challenging environment which allows pupils to thrive. The senior leadership team is accurate and forthright in its evaluation of the school and has clear and sound plans to secure further improvements, particularly to pupils’ progress. Leaders at every level have ownership of the initiatives the school has taken to bring about planned improvements. They have worked hard to ensure that these initiatives meet the needs of pupils and are embedded across the school through consistently good teaching. A culture of positive challenge is provided by the governing body, which supports and holds the senior leadership team to account. Governors have a clear understanding of areas of focus for the school and assist the senior team in its drive for improvement. Pupils are polite and enthusiastic, and genuinely enjoy their learning experience. They are keen readers both in school and at home. Pupils are investigative learners who enjoy asking questions and using their skills to find out answers. Since the previous inspection, there has been a rise in standards. In 2017, the proportions of pupils in Year 6 attaining the expected and higher levels exceeded national averages in reading and mathematics, and were broadly equal to national averages in writing. This reflected progress that was at least average and often above.

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.

Average Rating:

BY PARENTS, FOR PARENTS

“Outstanding School”
AUTHOR:
"> Our daughter was at this school from Nursery and left last year (2017) to attend her secondary school. She was offered 100% bursary by two of London's well known private schools because of her achievement in their entrance exams. We did not spend any cash to coach her to prepare for those exams. With her regular education at this school and encouragement from her teachers, our daughter was able to achieve those results. Outstanding.
