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 last inspection whereby pupils develop both academically and socially. Parents are overwhelmingly positive in their evaluation of this school and feel that their children are fortunate to attend the school. This is evident in the many comments made on Parent View, Ofsted’s online questionnaire. Parents wrote about how the school, ‘has consistently nurtured a truly excellent teaching format… for teaching life skills, manners’ and has ‘high expectations and aspirations’ alongside ‘providing pupils with such a good start in life’. One parent’s view that ‘teachers go above and beyond to meet the needs of pupils’ was echoed by many others. Highly focused leadership ensures that the federation with Great Ellingham Primary School benefits Rocklands’ drive for improvement. The previous inspection report recommended sharing subject leadership across the federation and this has been enacted successfully. As a result, subject expertise is disseminated effectively, ensuring that pupils at Rocklands study a broad and balanced curriculum. You provide a clear vision of success which celebrates the importance of community, resilience and inquisitiveness about the world. One pupil told me that the school really was the embodiment of its strapline, ‘small school, big heart, great expectations’. Governance at Rocklands is very effective. The governing body is led very well. Governors bring a breadth of experience to their roles, enabling the school to develop. Governors are highly ambitious for the success of pupils and use the information they gather from regular visits and data to both challenge and commend the quality of education offered at the school. Pupils’ behaviour is exemplary. They are both kind and respectful towards each other. As a result, pupils are able to learn in a harmonious environment. They respond well to teachers’ high expectations. For example, I observed pupils across all year groups demonstrating genuine support for the achievements of Reception children when they received certificates for fulfilling specific challenges in assembly. You have ensured that pupils develop strong learning behaviours such as resilience, lateral thinking and effort through weekly celebration of pupils who demonstrate these concepts. As a result, many pupils are developing key skills that will enable them to be productive, happy and fulfilled citizens of 21st century Britain. You correctly judge the early years provision to be a strength of the school. Children make a very good start to their learning at Rocklands. Although space is limited in the school, you and your leadership team have been highly innovative in exploiting it. As a result, the indoor and outdoor spaces are both engaging and focused on developing children’s physical development alongside reading, writing, mathematics and language skills. The proportion of children who make a good level of development has been consistently above the national average for the past few years. The previous inspection report raised the importance of ensuring consistently strong teaching in every class. You and your leadership team have addressed this through ensuring that every teacher uses key data to inform their planning for each pupil. Additionally, you have enabled subject leaders to improve the teaching, learning and assessment of their respective subject areas. For example, you recognised that improvements were required in mathematics and in collaboration with the mathematics leader embedded training and the use of key resources. As a result, outcomes at key stage 2 have improved and were above the national average in 2017. However, you also acknowledge that you need to embed greater challenge in the teaching of reading, writing and mathematics at both key stages so that a higher proportion of pupils make rapid progress. Safeguarding is effective. Pupils feel safe and well protected at Rocklands. Many pupils told me that the school was like a big family where everyone’s name is known and everyone cares for each other. Pupils can define bullying and were adamant in telling me that it did not happen at Rocklands. I observed the ways in which pupils of different year groups supported each other in class very well. All Year 6 pupils, for example, take their responsibility to look after the younger pupils in the school very seriously. All parents who responded to the Ofsted questionnaire stated that they were confident that their children were safe at the school. Leaders, including governors, ensure that safeguarding procedures are effective. Records, including the checks on all adults who work at the school, are securely maintained. Pupils who are in need of support receive timely and appropriate assistance.
