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. The headteacher is ambitious for the school and for his pupils. Everything is done with the pupils’ best interests at heart so that they leave the school well prepared for the next stage of their education. The headteacher is well supported by a strong team of leaders and managers. Staff share the leaders’ vision for the school and the sense of team spirit is tangible. Everyone knows the particular role they play in making the school successful, and they do their jobs well. Governors play an integral role in leading the school forwards. They have an in-depth knowledge of the school and offer robust challenge to school leaders. Since the previous inspection, the school has expanded and there are now two classes in each year group. Leaders have reviewed the quality of teaching and support in lessons, and have recruited an additional teacher for each year group. They have chosen to split classes into groups based on ability in English and mathematics. The calm, working atmosphere in classes enables pupils to focus on their work. As a result, all pupils, including disadvantaged pupils, make at least good progress from their different starting points. Attainment overall is consistently high in reading, writing and mathematics at both key stages. Children get off to a great start in the early years, and the proportion achieving a good level of development is above average. The school is continuing to grow and leaders have made plans for the best use of the improved facilities. They have worked hard on the areas for improvement identified at the previous inspection. Leaders know that there is still work to do in their drive to be outstanding, and all members of the school community value their commitment. Safeguarding is effective. School leaders are extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of safeguarding. The school has a safeguarding team whose members work together closely to ensure that children are kept safe and happy at school. Clear lines of communication mean that any concerns are dealt with swiftly and effectively. Leaders make referrals when necessary, and follow these up rigorously to ensure that pupils and families get the right support. All staff, including governors, are up to date in their safeguarding training, including for the ‘Prevent’ duty and female genital mutilation. Pre-recruitment checks are undertaken carefully and the school building is kept secure. Pupils said they feel safe and that they trust their teachers to help them with any worries they might have. Parents were very positive about the level of care their children receive at the school. Inspection findings In 2017, pupils’ progress at the end of Year 6 in writing and mathematics was well above the national average. Attainment was high in all subjects. However, reading progress was average and leaders identified improvements in reading as a priority for the whole school. For this reason, we agreed that this would be a key line of enquiry for the inspection. Leaders have analysed previous performance information and identified gaps in learning. They recognised that in Year 3, for example, a lack of fluency in reading was affecting comprehension skills. Consequently, they set up an additional support group to ensure that pupils get the help they need. Leaders identify the most able pupils at an early stage in their education, so that teachers can plan suitably challenging work for them. Leaders have invested in a new reading scheme, which is being trialled across Years 3, 4 and 5. Teachers now focus on refining the reading skills that pupils need, so that they can achieve greater depth in reading. Staff ensure that pupils in Years 1 to 4 read to teachers or other adults each week so that they track pupils’ progress more closely. Current performance information indicates that progress in reading is improving. Older pupils read challenging texts with confidence. Teachers increasingly question pupils skilfully and make them delve more deeply into texts and, thus, improve their understanding. Younger pupils use their phonics skills well to help them work out difficult words and they enjoy reading. Leaders strive to engage parents increasingly with helping to support their children’s reading. Overall, the school is working hard to improve standards in reading. The second key line of enquiry that we agreed to consider was attendance. Overall, attendance at school has been below average for the past three years. Persistent absence has been very high in relation to the national average, particularly for some groups of pupils.
