School Description

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. You and your senior leaders have created a warm, nurturing and creative learning environment that welcomes children from all cultures, faiths and backgrounds. You, staff and pupils are very proud of the school’s faith ethos and its status as a silver ‘Rights Respecting School’. Consequently, everyone’s spiritual development, and everyone’s social and emotional well-being, are of the highest priority. You have an accurate understanding of the strengths of the school and detailed plans to tackle areas that do not currently meet your very high expectations. You are highly aspirational for the pupils in your care and determined to help every child reach their full potential. Many pupils join the school throughout the year, some at the very early stages of learning English. You have established effective systems to ascertain quickly each child’s social and emotional needs, plus their academic ability, so that you can provide them with bespoke support. Consequently, all pupils make good progress irrespective of their starting points. Pupils enjoy coming to school and the vast majority attend regularly. They were keen to tell the inspector about the wide range of opportunities available to them. They mentioned in particular singing in the school choir at the Royal Albert Hall, participating in dance and sports activities at lunchtime, learning an instrument or tending the school’s resident chickens. Pupils are keen to celebrate each other’s differences, backgrounds and faiths. They mix well and show respect and tolerance towards each other. In lessons, they are genuinely interested in their studies and work hard. The pupil leadership team and the school council ensure that pupils have a say in the quality of their education and the events and activities on offer. Parents are complimentary about the culture you have created. As one parent said: ‘It is a shining example of how faith schools should be run, with a sense of harmony for all pupils, irrespective of their religious backgrounds.’ Governors are very proud of the school and highly committed to supporting you in your endeavours. They carefully consider the information you provide and, where appropriate, ask for further clarification. Governors involve themselves fully in the life of the school and value the views of parents and carers. They take their statutory responsibilities very seriously and ensure that safeguarding arrangements are effective. You have addressed effectively the areas identified for improvement at the previous inspection. Pupils’ work shows that they routinely receive helpful advice and guidance from their teachers on how to improve. Often, they are challenged to attempt another task or revise their work, which they do enthusiastically. New leadership in early years has resulted in an overhaul of the provision and substantial improvements. Accurate assessments of children’s starting points mean that teachers plan appropriate activities that encourage children to be curious and active learners. As a result, children in the early years make consistently good progress in preparation for Year 1. You have made significant improvements to the outdoor area in key stage 1 and have plans to do the same in the early years foundation stage. Safeguarding is effective. You and your leadership team have established a robust safeguarding culture across the school. Every member of staff understands their statutory responsibility to keep children safe. You know the potential risks for your pupils. These include radicalisation, female genital mutilation, physical chastisement by parents, poverty and mental health. Consequently, you have ensured that all staff are well trained and vigilant in identifying signs that might indicate that a child is at risk. Systems for recording this information are highly effective and you have ensured that all safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose. You work well with external agencies and are resolute in your determination to find early and appropriate help for pupils and their families. Checks on the suitability of staff to work at the school are in line with current guidelines. Pupils are clear that staff keep them safe and offer them appropriate guidance and support. When asked whether pupils are ever unkind to each other, one boy said: ‘Of course not, we are a rights respecting school.’ Pupils spoke of helpful advice they had received about road safety, protecting themselves while away from school and staying safe online. Pupils have highly positive relationships with school staff. They were clear about which adults they could talk to should they have any worries or concerns. The large school site is safe and well maintained.

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.
