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. Spixworth Infant School is a school which, as one governor rightly said, cares for the whole child. You, all staff and governors are determined to ensure that pupils make good progress academically but also develop into wellrounded, caring individuals. This is reflected in the emphasis you give to developing pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural understanding. For example, pupils consider ‘big questions’ in philosophy such as what it means to be truly happy. You have made sure that playtimes are positive social experiences, providing lots of different equipment and setting up games and activities. Since becoming the substantive headteacher in September 2017, you have set about ensuring that your high expectations are shared by staff and governors. You have quickly built a staff team who work together well and are building on the school’s strengths and taking action to secure further improvements for the school. Issues identified in the previous inspection report have been addressed successfully. One of these was to raise the proportion of pupils reaching the expected standard in phonics. Phonics outcomes have steadily risen and are now above the national average. The other area for improvement was to improve the use of the sports premium funding. This has also been addressed. Physical education has a high profile in the school, with lots of different sporting activities, events and opportunities for pupils such as running the daily mile which all pupils take part in.
