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

Pupils enjoy coming to school. They show pride in their work and interest in learning. Pupils find teachers to be kind and supportive. Pupils know that staff expect them to work hard and do their best. All who work at the school have high expectations of pupils, whatever their needs or circumstances. Pupils rise to meet these expectations and achieve well. The school is a calm and orderly place, focused on helping pupils to learn. Occasionally, a very few pupils struggle to behave. Nevertheless, staff understand their needs and help to manage pupils’ behaviour very well. Pupils are safe in school. They trust staff to look after them and to deal with any concerns quickly and without fuss. Bullying is rare. Pupils have a strong sense of responsibility, so they report incidents if they see them happening. Staff make sure that any suspected bullying is nipped in the bud. Many parents and carers highlight the positive atmosphere in the school. They particularly appreciate the way that the school enables each pupil to flourish. One parent said: ‘The headteacher and the staff team make sure every child can shine in one way or another.’ What does the school do well and what does it need to do better? The headteacher and senior leaders have built a culture of high expectations. All staff fully support this. Parents are positive about the improvements that have happened since the previous inspection. Senior leaders are determined that all pupils will become fluent, enthusiastic readers. They see reading as ‘central to everything’. Teachers choose exciting and interesting books for reading lessons. Books and stories also enliven wider curriculum subjects. For example, pupils in Year 5 used ‘Goodnight Mr Tom’ to understand about life for evacuees in the Second World War. Pupils enjoy reading. The school’s curriculum covers the full range of subjects in the national curriculum. Teachers sequence learning carefully so that lessons build on what pupils have already learned in school. For example, pupils learn about the Mayans in Year 6. Teachers first make sure that pupils revisit their earlier learning about the Romans. This helps pupils to see the similarities and differences between the two civilisations. Teachers use this same careful planning across the whole curriculum. Senior leaders make sure that teachers have the expertise to teach a wide range of subjects well. As a result, teachers make learning interesting and appealing to pupils. This includes pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). Teachers adapt lessons skilfully so that all can be involved. Inspection report: Peel Common Junior School 1–2 October 2019 2 Pupils achieve well in a wide range of subjects, including reading and mathematics. However, they achieve less well in writing. Pupils do not always transfer their knowledge of grammar and punctuation to their writing. Leaders are aware of this and have started to tackle this weakness. Most pupils with SEND have their needs met well, and they achieve well. A few of these pupils achieve less well because staff are not entirely clear about their exact needs. Staff provide strong support for those pupils who may require additional support to manage their behaviour. The number of fixed-term exclusions has reduced considerably. The school provides very well for pupils’ personal development. Staff know pupils well. They look out for any worries that pupils may have and offer help and encouragement when needed. Many parents highlighted this as a particular strength of the school. Pupils behave well, and this helps them become successful learners. Pupils enjoy a range of healthy, active opportunities and clubs. These include crosscountry, cheerleading and an annual ‘fun-mudder’ event. Every disadvantaged pupil has access to at least one healthy after-school activity each week. Pupils love taking on the many positions of responsibility in the school. The prefects wear their red sweatshirts with pride. They carry out a range of jobs diligently. Pupils understand, appreciate and respect difference in the world. They are very clear that all people should be treated in the same fair way.
