School Description

Ridgeway Primary School is larger than the average-sized primary school. Since the last inspection there have been significant changes to the leadership of the school. This includes two co-headteachers, senior leaders and the chair of the governing body. The local authority has supported the school during this transition. Pupils come from a wide range of ethnic backgrounds with the largest group being White British. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is above the national average. The proportion of pupils with SEND is below the national average. The proportion of pupils with an EHC plan is above the national average. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils is below the national average. Inspection report: Ridgeway Primary School, 13–14 November 2018 Page 8 of 10 Information about this inspection Inspectors observed learning in all classes, including all early years provision, jointly with members of the headship team. Together with the headship team, inspectors scrutinised pupils’ books from all year groups. Inspectors also analysed a range of information about pupils’ progress. Inspectors listened to key stage 1 and key stage 2 pupils read. They spoke to pupils while visiting classrooms, in the dining hall and on the playground. In addition, inspectors spoke to groups of pupils formally to find out their views of the school. The lead inspector met with the chair of the governing body, a group of governors and a representative from the local authority. A range of meetings were held with the co-headteachers, deputy headteacher, assistant headteacher, special educational needs coordinator, middle leaders and teachers. The lead inspector visited the ‘Acorns’ breakfast and after-school provision. He spoke to the manager and checked documentation. He observed some extra-curricular activities. Inspectors observed pupils’ behaviour in assemblies, lessons, at playtimes and lunchtimes. Inspectors reviewed various documents provided by the school. These included the school’s self-evaluation; improvement plans; the pupil premium statement; governing body minutes and documents relating to safeguarding. The views of some parents were collected at the beginning and end of the school day.

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.
