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

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the previous inspection. You are determined that pupils’ academic and personal development are treated as equally important. This belief underpins your vision and continuing targets for the school. Together with a dedicated deputy headteacher and capable middle leaders, you have worked hard to ensure that the school continues to improve its curriculum and the quality of teaching. Governors know how different groups of pupils are faring because they have a good grasp of performance information. They know the strengths and areas of development for the school. They are proud of the school and ambitious for its future. All the parents I spoke to and the majority of parents who replied to Ofsted’s questionnaire, Parent View, were positive about the school. In particular, they praised the pastoral work of the school and were keen to emphasise how well their children are cared for. One parent described how well the school provided emotional support to pupils. Another said that her children loved coming to school. Pupils are also proud of the school and appreciate the care teachers show them. One explained how teachers ‘don’t just tell you things’ but take time to explain concepts so pupils understand. Pupils are enthusiastic about visits and extracurricular activities. They cited, in particular, a Year 6 residential visit to an outdoor activity centre and a theatre trip for Years 2 and 3. They also love music, sports and physical education (PE) and are thrilled about the numerous performances, competitions and clubs they can take part in. You have welcomed external advice and support to help you with your work. Your outward-looking approach has not only enhanced the capacity of leaders to continue to improve teaching, but is also enabling you to learn from the best practice at other settings. You have enhanced the school’s curriculum with specialist teachers for subjects such as PE and music. This additional support has benefited pupils, who can, for example, compose music based on a given theme. Teachers use visual media to enhance the teaching of PE. The wider curriculum has also been enriched through themed weeks and clubs. You are rightly proud of the school’s brass band and the school’s role in supporting the local youth orchestra. Pupils regularly take part in sporting competitions, including in tennis and football. Pupils also have the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of clubs, including chess, boccia and violin. Themed weeks include anti-bullying and safe-internet week. At the previous inspection, you were asked to improve provision for mathematics across the school and, in particular, increase opportunities for pupils to apply their numeracy skills to solve problems. In lessons and in pupils’ books that I saw, there was evidence that pupils are completing both problem-solving and reasoning activities. However, some teachers do not move children on to more challenging work when they are ready. The previous inspection also asked you to ensure that teachers set work at the right level of difficulty for their pupils, particularly the most able. Again, evidence from classroom observations and a review of pupils’ books show that teachers are mostly aware of the needs of pupils and set work accordingly. Where this is highly effective, teachers provide groups and individual pupils with carefully tailored work and check how well pupils are doing throughout lessons. Consequently, pupils move on to the next stage of learning at the right time. Where teachers are less skilled at this, they miss opportunities to help pupils deepen their knowledge and understanding. Safeguarding is effective. The leadership team has ensured that all safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose. Staff and governors receive regular training so that their knowledge of good practice in safeguarding is kept up to date. They have a clear understanding of what to do if they are worried about a pupil’s well-being, and leaders ensure that any concerns are swiftly followed up.
