School Description

Southfield Junior School is a two-form entry school for pupils aged 7 to 11 years. The school is in an informal partnership with Eastrop Infant School. The executive headteacher leads both schools. The role of special educational needs coordinator and designated safeguarding lead is also shared with the infant school. The school is smaller than average, but pupil numbers have increased since the previous inspection. Almost all pupils are from a White British background. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils supported by the pupil premium funding is broadly in line with the national average. The proportion of pupils with SEND is broadly in line with the national average. The proportion of pupils with an education, health and care plan is lower than the national average. Pupils from the school attend a breakfast club operated by the partner infant school. The school provides after-school care for pupils from both schools. Inspection report: Southfield Junior School, 4–5 June 2019 Page 8 of 10 Information about this inspection The inspectors observed teaching and learning in each class. Many of the observations were carried out jointly with senior leaders. Inspectors reviewed the information the school holds about pupils’ progress. Inspectors examined samples of pupils’ work across the curriculum. Leaders worked with inspectors for some of these reviews of pupils’ work. Meetings were held with senior leaders and subject leaders to review the development of the school and the information they hold about their monitoring of teaching and learning. Inspectors reviewed a range of safeguarding documentation, including the school’s records of attendance, behaviour and response to concerns. Inspectors also spoke to a number of staff about safeguarding. They reviewed samples of the school’s risk assessments. Inspectors heard pupils read from their work when visiting classes. An inspector met with a group of pupils. Pupils discussed their reading books and talked about how teachers helped them to develop their reading. They brought their work in mathematics and science to discuss with the inspector. Inspectors spoke to pupils in the group about behaviour and safety. They also spoke to other pupils in the lunch hall and on the playground to gather their views of the school. Two meetings were held with governors. An inspector reviewed minutes of governors’ meetings. A meeting was held with the school’s improvement partner. The inspectors took account of the views of parents through meeting with them at the beginning of the school day. In addition, inspectors reviewed the 58 responses and 34 comments recorded on Ofsted’s online survey, Parent View. Inspectors also took account of one telephone call from a parent. The views of staff were taken account of through the 20 responses to the staff survey.

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.
