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, your governors and staff have created a safe and nurturing learning community. Your motto, ‘Learning together in God’s love’, permeates the life of the school. You have cultivated a climate of respect and tolerance, and prioritised the spiritual and emotional well-being of pupils and staff. As a result, pupils are happy and show the utmost respect for each other and the adults who work with them. Pupils enjoy coming to school and do so regularly. You have systematically developed a learning environment that utilises every area of the large site. Classrooms are bright and stimulating. The school library sits at the heart of the school and is full of interesting and stimulating texts. The outside area is exceptionally well planned, offering distinct areas in which to play, learn, exercise, socialise and relax. Pupils were excited to show off their garden areas and proud of their healthy crop of tomatoes and cucumbers. Others wanted to show the walkways to their hideaways. Staff utilise the indoor and outdoor spaces to provide a broad curriculum that promotes pupils’ imagination, skills and aptitudes. Pupils are well behaved, articulate and very keen to learn. A large proportion of parents and carers responded to the Ofsted online survey, and the vast majority were highly complimentary about the school, believing their children are happy and make good progress. Children in the early years and pupils in key stage 1 benefit from a rich learning environment. Staff orchestrate creative and interesting activities that promote pupils’ interest and imagination. For instance, Year 1 pupils proudly showed me their writing about the river Amazon and their ‘Save the rainforest’ posters. As a result, children in early years and pupils in key stage 1 make good progress from their starting points. You have accurately identified several reasons for the disappointing 2017 key stage 2 outcomes and have worked hard this year to address them. Together, leaders and staff at all levels have introduced a number of initiatives to support pupils to make better progress. You have raised staff’s expectations of what pupils can achieve, particularly the most able. The new assessment system ensures that staff can check carefully on the progress pupils make and intervene quickly, if necessary. It also enables middle leaders to monitor the progress of different groups of pupils so that staff can offer appropriate support and guidance. This was an area for improvement at the last inspection. Consequently, initial results at key stage 2 this year indicate a rise in attainment and progress, particularly in mathematics and reading. The proportion of pupils exceeding the expected standard is indicative of a marked improvement from last year. You receive high-quality support and challenge from your committed governors. They are experienced and work closely with parents and the church community. Governors are proud of the school and have helped to make necessary improvements to ensure that pupils make good progress. Safeguarding is effective. You have created a safe learning environment where all staff understand their responsibilities to safeguard pupils. You provide up-to-date training for staff and governors so that they are clear about the potential risks to pupils, and know what to do should they have any concerns. You keep careful records of referrals to external agencies and ensure that actions are completed promptly. You understand the needs of particular families and support them to get early help when needed. Checks on the suitability of staff to work at the school are in line with current guidelines. Pupils spoken to during the inspection said that they feel safe at school. They receive regular information about how to stay safe in school and in the wider community. For instance, they spoke about road safety and how they learn to stay safe online. Pupils said that they would share their concerns with their teacher and are confident that they would receive appropriate help. The large site is maintained to a high level. Pupils gave examples of how some areas had been modified to make them safer. For example, non-slip coverings were added to wooden walkways, following a concern raised by the school council.
