School Description

The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website. Rushmere Hall is much larger than the average-sized primary school. The proportion of pupils with an education, health and care plan or statement of special education needs is above the national average. The proportion of pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals is in line with the national average. The majority of pupils are of White British heritage. The school has a specialist Speech and Language Unit attached to it for 15 pupils and a specialist Hearing Impaired Unit for 10 pupils. The headteacher and chair of governors have changed since the last section 5 inspection. They both took up their current positions in September 2016. Inspection report: Rushmere Hall Primary School, 28–29 June 2017 Page 9 of 11 Information about this inspection The inspectors visited classes in every year across the school at least once, observing teaching and learning, talking to pupils and assessing the quality of their work. The headteacher and both deputy headteachers accompanied the inspectors on some classroom visits. There were also a number of shorter visits to lessons to track particular groups of pupils as well as visits to the Hearing Impaired Unit and the Speech and Language Unit. The inspectors observed the school’s work and looked at documentation, including the school’s analysis of its strengths and weaknesses, information on pupils’ attainment and progress, records of behaviour and safety, governor monitoring records and safeguarding documents. Inspectors looked at examples of pupils’ written work across a range of subjects and year groups. The inspector also separately scrutinised a range of pupils’ work including English, mathematics, humanities and science books. Meetings were held with the headteacher, staff, pupils and governors. Inspectors also listened to pupils read. Inspectors observed pupils’ behaviour at lunchtime. Inspectors held discussions with pupils and were available to speak to parents on the playground. They also took into account 103 responses to Ofsted’s online parent questionnaire, Parent View.

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 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.
