School Description

The school is similar in size to the average primary school. It is a junior school and, as such, teaches pupils from Year 3 to Year 6. The proportion of pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities is well above the national average. The proportion of pupils who have a statement of special educational needs or an education, health and care plan is lower than the national average. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils is well above the national average. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress in English and mathematics. Several senior leaders currently in post were not at the school at the time of the previous inspection. This includes the headteacher and the deputy headteacher. The teacher with responsibility for mathematics and the teacher with responsibility for English were not in these roles at the time of the previous inspection. Inspection report: Ryhope Junior School, 6–7 June 2018 Page 7 of 9 Information about this inspection Inspectors observed learning and groups of pupils working across the school. Inspectors observed learning jointly with the headteacher and discussed what was seen. Inspectors observed pupils when moving around the school and at social times. They talked to pupils in lessons about their experience at school and looked at work in their books. They talked to a specific group of pupils to hear their views about the school and about the behaviour of other pupils. In addition, inspectors spoke to pupils at random to listen to their views. Inspectors held meetings with members of the governing body and school staff, including senior and middle leaders. An inspector met with a representative from the local authority to discuss the quality of provision at the school. Inspectors took account of the 26 responses to Ofsted’s online parent questionnaire, Parent View. Inspectors observed the school’s work and scrutinised a range of documentation, including: the school’s view of its own performance; monitoring records; information about pupils’ progress; improvement planning; and records of behaviour and attendance. They looked closely at records relating to safeguarding and child protection and at policies, including those published on the school’s website. An inspector looked at the support that pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities receive, and met with the deputy headteacher, who is also the special educational needs coordinator.

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.
