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

This is a school that is rooted in the values that make up the ‘Southbroom Way’. The recently appointed headteacher has set out the high expectations she expects for all pupils. There is a renewed optimism, a clear sense of direction and an ambition for pupils to achieve more. Nonetheless, it is too soon to see the full benefit of this, particularly in pupils’ writing, which has been a stubborn issue over recent years. The vibrant school environment celebrates pupils’ achievements, such as their fundraising and community involvement. For example, pupils make displays for the local carnival and sing in a nearby care home. Positive relationships are a valued and palpable characteristic of the school. Pupils say that bullying is not something that they worry about. Pupils are typically well mannered and eager to discuss what they enjoy about their school. Many parents and carers comment on the care and nurture that their children receive. The headteacher encourages pupils to harness their positive attitudes and learn well. The majority of pupils do so. However, at times, pupils lose their focus when they do not know where to start. When pupils struggle to contain their emotions, staff support pupils well, so that learning can continue uninterrupted.
