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

Warm relationships lie at the heart of Roundthorn Primary Academy. Pupils flourish in the knowledge that this school expects the best from them, both academically and in preparation for life as responsible citizens. Many pupils, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), achieve well. Pupils arrive at school happy and keen to learn. In lessons, they listen attentively. Pupils move around the school sensibly and quietly. Pupils are polite and welcoming towards visitors, for example by holding doors open for them and smiling in greeting. From the outset, children in early years learn about their feelings and emotions. The school encourages pupils of all ages to talk to staff if they have any concerns. Pupils value the respectful relationships that they have with staff. They know that their opinions matter. The school provides an exceptional programme to develop pupils’ learning beyond the academic curriculum. Pupils benefit from a wide range of exciting trips, as well as visitors coming into school to speak about a range of topics. The school is ambitious for pupils’ future. Older pupils take part in science lessons at a local college to further develop their enthusiasm and knowledge of the subject. They learn about potential career choices. Across the school, pupils are encouraged to take on various leadership responsibilities, such as being a ‘friend of Roundthorn’ or a health champion.
