School Description

Recreation Road is an infant school which is larger in size than the average primary school. Most pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of disabled pupils or those with special educational needs supported by the school at school action and at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is average. The proportion of pupils for whom the pupil premium (in the school’s case, additional funding to support pupils eligible for free school meals) is below average. Provision for children in the Early Years Foundation Stage is full-time. A small number of pupils attend part-time during the first half term of the Reception year while they settle into school. The headteacher leads the school for four days a week sharing the role with the deputy who takes the headship role for one day. Senior leadership roles have been changed to incorporate year group leadership from September 2014. Governors have matched their roles to this change and are now allocated to work with year groups. The school holds the budget for the local cluster collaborative work and plays a strong leadership role in its joint professional development.

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.
