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

Phoenix School provides for pupils who have autistic spectrum disorders (ASD). The majority also have severe learning difficulties and speech, language and communication difficulties. Since the previous inspection, the school has opened a sixth form section, which is now in its fourth year. It has been housed in new accommodation on the same site, which was completed in August this year as part of the Building Schools for the Future project. Currently, the large majority of pupils are boys. The majority are of Bangladeshi or Somali background, a small minority are from Black backgrounds and a few are from White backgrounds. A large majority are from homes where English is not the home language. All pupils have a statement of special educational needs for autistic spectrum disorders. The proportion of pupils at the school eligible for the pupil premium, which provides additional government funding to support pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, children in local authority care and children from service families, is well above the national average. Currently, there are very few in local authority care. Pupils new to the school are usually admitted in September, but there are also admissions throughout the year. The school uses Tower Hamlets College and the Mudchute Farm for one morning per week for Key Stage 4 pupils. One sixth form class spends a day each week at the nearby mainstream Wessex Sixth Form Centre. The Phoenix Outreach Service consists of five specialist advisory teachers who support ASD pupils in mainstream schools across Tower Hamlets What does the school need to do to improve further? Increase the use and range of new technologies in the classroom to make learning even more exciting and develop all pupils’ independent communication skills.
