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 and your team have developed a stimulating environment for learning in which pupils grow in confidence, work hard and aim high. You and the deputy headteacher have ensured that spiritual, moral, social and cultural education permeates all of the school’s work. Pupils, even the very youngest through learning based around Elmer by David McKee, understand that every person is unique and that individual differences are to be valued and celebrated. The value you place on every pupil is shown through the bespoke provision that is put in place for those needing a little extra help. Pupils value this individualised support highly. For example, a pupil told me that nurturing sessions have improved his ability to communicate. Parents are very appreciative of the school’s work too. A parent reported that having their very young child attend school enthusiastically has been ‘both reassuring and comforting’. At the time of the last inspection, you were asked to improve the quality of teaching and raise the standards pupils reach in subjects other than English. You have addressed both priorities successfully. For example, mathematics, which was a weaker subject area previously, is thriving in school now. Teachers provide openended tasks that allow pupils to investigate, reason and solve mathematical problems. Pupils enjoy and benefit from taking part in mathematical ‘Finding out Fridays’. As a result, the proportion of pupils who reach and exceed the expected standard for their age in mathematics at the end of each key stage is growing yearon-year. You understand the need for disadvantaged pupils, those eligible for support through the government’s additional funding, to attend school every day. This is an area for further development because their levels of attendance are below those seen nationally. Quite rightly, you have implemented a new approach to recording trends in behavioural incidents to the governing body. This is giving governors the information they require to support and challenge you to improve aspects of personal development, behaviour and welfare. You appreciate the need to tighten some of the school’s systems and procedures further, including the administration of the school’s website. You acknowledge that senior leaders find it difficult to judge the progress that children make from their individual starting points in the early years with pinpoint accuracy. In addition, following leaders’ success in improving the standard of mathematics throughout the school, you know that standards in reading are not as high as they could be. Safeguarding is effective. The leadership team has ensured that there is a strong culture of safeguarding and care in your school. Pupils trust their teachers and senior leaders implicitly. They feel safe and secure in school. Pupils recognise and can explain different types of bullying. They are confident that adults in school would take immediate action if bullying occurred at St Anne’s. Your pupils were very proud to tell me about winning the ‘most active anti-bullying team in the City of Sunderland’ award recently. Pupils understand the rules for staying safe online. They told me that they would never give their personal details out online and that they know how to report the inappropriate online behaviour of others. Risk assessments and staff recruitment checks are rigorous. Staff are trained well in all aspects of child protection and safeguarding. You, as designated leader for child protection, ensure that pupils access the support to which they are entitled. You are not afraid to escalate safeguarding referrals to the next level if you are disappointed with the response from children’s services. The children are at the heart of the school’s work.
