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.

Inspection report: Overthorpe CofE Academy, 29–30 January 2019 Page 10 of 12 Information about this inspection The inspectors observed teaching and learning in all classes in a range of lessons. In most of these sessions, senior leaders accompanied them. The quality of pupils’ work in a wide range of subjects and in all classes across the school was scrutinised. The inspectors observed pupils’ behaviour around school and reviewed the school’s promotion of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. The inspectors observed pupils in the playground and during lunchtime. The lead inspector spoke to members of the governing body, the school improvement partners and the CEO from Enhance Academy Trust. A telephone conversation was held with an officer from the Church of England Diocese of Leeds. Inspectors considered the 31 responses to Ofsted’s online survey, Parent View, including parents’ free-text responses. Inspectors also considered 23 responses to the staff questionnaire. Inspectors met with parents at the start of the school day. Inspectors listened to pupils read and met with pupils to listen to their views about the school. A range of documentation was examined, including a summary of the school’s selfevaluation, the school development plan, safeguarding information, pupil premium documents, sports premium documents, the school’s assessment information and governing body meeting minutes. The school is designated as having a religious character and received a Section 48 inspection on 10 June 2015.
