School Description

This school is much larger than most other primary schools. Very few pupils are White British. The majority come from the Indian sub-continent, with the largest group being those of Pakistani origin. There are increasing numbers of pupils from other European countries. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is well above average. The number of pupils who either leave or join the school other than at the normal time is well above average. The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs supported through school action is above average. The proportion who are supported at school action plus or who have statements of special educational needs is also above average. The most significant areas of need include speech and communication difficulties and behavioural, emotional and social difficulties. A few pupils have physical disabilities. An above-average percentage of pupils are eligible for the pupil premium (funding to support children in local authority care, children of service families and those known to be eligible for free school meals). The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress in English and mathematics. The school shares a site with a children’s centre, which is subject to a separate inspection. The school has been awarded Thinking School status by the University of Exeter, has a United Nations Children’s Fund Rights Respecting Schools award. It has been recognised as a centre of excellence for an initiative developing systems that improve pupils’ written work by focussing closely on talking in great detail as preparation for writing tasks. Seven newly-qualified teachers have been appointed since September 2013.

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.
