School Description

The school converted to an academy in February 2016 and became part of the Education Partnership Trust. At that time, the predecessor school required improvement to be a good school. Prior to that, the predecessor school had required special measures. The Education Partnership Trust receives government funding for the school. It is ultimately accountable for the school’s performance. The trust also provides the school with central services, including human resources management, financial management, marketing, health and safety and website support. The trust delegates some responsibilities to the local governing body, including monitoring the performance of the headteacher. The current headteacher took up post in the predecessor school one month before it converted to an academy. With one exception, the current leadership team were in post at the time of academy conversion. About one third of the teaching staff are new Inspection report: Pleckgate High School, 29 to 30 January 2019 Page 9 of 12 to the academy. A much larger proportion of pupils than average speak English as an additional language. A larger-than-average proportion of pupils are disadvantaged. As an alternative to Pleckgate High School, a small number of its pupils currently attend The Heights, Blackburn. In addition, a very small number are tutored at home.

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.
