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. You have a crystal-clear vision for the school and want pupils to thrive both socially and academically. You have developed a strong and dedicated team of staff, which shares your high aspirations for pupils. Your governors and senior leadership team support you well. Pupils make good progress overall. In 2017, GCSE results showed that pupils’ progress in English and humanities and some other subjects were significantly above average. The proportion of pupils who secure places in education or training when they leave Year 11 is above average. Shavington Academy is a close-knit, caring and inclusive community. Pupils are polite and welcoming. They enjoy school. One pupil commented: ‘Teachers care. We are pushed to do our best.’ Pupils behave well around the school. In lessons, they show respect for the views and opinions of others. Pupils enjoy positive relationships with their teachers and each other. Their experience at the school is enhanced by a wide range of clubs and activities such as sport, music and drama. Pupils relish the opportunities to participate in a variety of trips and visits. The great majority of parents and carers who responded to Ofsted’s online questionnaire, Parent View, are very positive about the school and would recommend it to others. As one parent commented: ‘Pastoral care is great. My children receive fantastic support with their learning and confidence.’ Another parent said: ‘Staff are friendly and approachable. My child has settled in well.’ You have a good grasp of the school’s strengths and areas for development and have relentlessly tackled underperformance. Together with your governors and staff team, you are successfully managing a significant rise in pupil numbers as a result of the increasing popularity of the school. You have an outward-looking approach and as a local leader of education you use your expertise to support other schools. Staff morale is high. The very large majority of staff who responded to the online survey are proud to work in the school. Staff welcome the chance to develop their skills. One teacher commented, ‘This school fosters in us our love of learning.’ Many staff who join as newly qualified teachers progress to become leaders in the school. This ‘grow our own’ culture ensures a positive impact on improvements in teaching and learning. You and your leaders check the quality of teaching closely. You have created many opportunities for teachers to work together, including peer observations and learning walks. Teachers use questioning well to probe pupils’ understanding and deepen their thinking. Leaders analyse pupils’ assessments and scrutinise their work regularly, so that appropriate support can be given to pupils who are at risk of falling behind. You have rightly recognised that you need to continue to focus on ensuring that pupils’ progress in science improves further. You recognise that you could do more to ensure that disadvantaged pupils attend more frequently and achieve the highest standards. Safeguarding is effective. There is a strong safeguarding culture in the school. Leaders and governors have ensured that safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose. Records are detailed and of a high quality. All staff are trained to an appropriate level and receive regular safeguarding updates. Staff are aware of the procedures for making referrals should they have concerns. Vulnerable pupils are supported sensitively, particularly those who are anxious or suffer from mental health difficulties. Leaders work effectively with outside agencies. Pupils at the school feel safe. Those who spoke with inspectors said that bullying is rare. They are confident that adults in the school will help them if needed. Through the personal, social, health and economic education programme pupils learn how they can stay safe online and in relation to potential risks such as domestic violence. Inspection findings One of the key lines of enquiry during this inspection centred on the curriculum. Leaders adapt the curriculum to ensure that it meets the needs of pupils. Pupils follow a broad and well-considered curriculum. For example, a second language has been introduced to promote modern foreign languages in key stage 3. The.
