School Description

Since the last inspection, the secondary school has become an all-through school. The school has one site for secondary pupils and two sites for primary pupils. The Luck Lane site took its first group of Reception children in September 2014. A new primary school building opened on the Luck Lane site in September 2016. Currently, Luck Lane Primary has pupils from Reception to Year 3. It will continue to grow until it becomes a 420-place primary school in 2020. In March 2015, Beech Early Years Infant and Junior School was closed by the local authority and merged with Royds Hall Community School. For admissions purposes, the Beech and Luck Lane primary sites are treated as separate schools. Beech Primary has pupils from Nursery to Year 6. The headteacher of Beech Primary left in December 2015. The head of the primary phase was appointed in January 2016. Deputy headteachers for each primary site started in September 2016, though one continued teaching Year 6. The school also has Inspection report: Royds Hall Community School, 20–21 September 2017 Page 13 of 16 a head of the secondary phase. The primary and secondary phases are formally supported by national leaders of education, with funding provided by the local authority. The number on roll has increased significantly since 2016 with the addition of primary pupils. The number on roll in the primary phase is above the average for primary schools. The number on roll in the secondary phase is below the average for secondary schools. Overall, it is larger than the average-sized secondary school. The proportion of secondary pupils supported by the pupil premium is above the average for secondary schools. The proportion of primary pupils supported by the pupil premium is well above the average for primary schools. The proportions of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds, and of those who speak English as an additional language, are well above average. Pupils on the Beech site are mainly of White British heritage. The proportion of pupils who receive support for special educational needs and/or disabilities is above average in primary and below average in secondary. The proportion of pupils who have a statement of special educational needs and/or disabilities has increased in the last two years and is high. Currently, 65 pupils have an education, health and care plan, almost all of whom are of secondary age. The majority of these pupils have speech, language and communication needs. The primary phase has a part-time nurture provision for a small number of pupils. The school hosts the Kirklees Specialist Provision Hub for Speech, Language and Communication Needs for students aged 11 to 16. Currently, 17 pupils are supported by this provision. They are on the school roll, are integrated into the school and follow a normal timetable. This school year, the school started to use Kirklees College as an alternative provider for a small number of key stage 4 students. The school provides breakfast clubs for pupils on all three sites. Overall, the stability of the pupil population is average. However, there is more pupil mobility at the Beech site. In 2016, the school did not meet the government’s floor standards for primary schools. It met the floor standards for secondary schools. These standards are the government’s minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress. The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website.

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.
