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. Based on the evidence gathered during this short inspection, I am of the opinion that the school has demonstrated strong practice and marked improvement in specific areas. This may indicate that the school has improved significantly overall. Therefore, I am recommending that the school’s next inspection be a section 5 inspection. You and the deputy headteacher lead the school exceptionally well. Your passion and determination for all pupils to achieve their very best have continued to improve the school. You have the support of a creative and committed staff. Governors provide strong and strategic direction. Together, you have developed many aspects of the school since the last inspection. The ‘St Anthony’s values’ are at the heart of the school. The welcoming ethos and the warm and respectful relationships are part of the fabric. Teachers have high expectations of pupils’ achievement and for their personal and social development. As a result, pupils demonstrate a love of learning and show confidence and determination when they find things challenging. Pupils work together and support each other well. One pupil described the school’s values as: ‘We believe in giving everyone a chance and treating everyone as we want to be treated ourselves.’ At the previous inspection, you were asked to improve teaching by teachers providing even greater challenge for the most able pupils. You have successfully achieved this. You have invested heavily in the ongoing professional development of staff. Staff have benefited from external training, working with local schools and internal coaching and mentoring programmes. They highly value the new technology that helps them to reflect on and continually improve their own teaching. Teachers have become confident in recognising and responding to pupils who are capable of working at higher standards. One teacher commented: ‘We work as a team. We help each other. We try new things to make sure that we are encouraging and challenging the pupils to think hard and aim high.’ The percentage of pupils achieving the higher standards in reading, writing and mathematics combined at the end of key stage 2 was above the national average in both 2017 and 2018. Progress rates in key stage 2 were above average in writing and mathematics. There has been a steady year-on-year improvement in the percentage of children achieving a good level of development by the end of Reception Year. There was a further improvement in 2018, but it is not yet in line with the national average. You have extended early years education to include two-year-olds and have recently appointed a new early years leader. She has a clear vision and is confidently leading improvement across the two- to four-year-old age range. Safeguarding is effective. The leadership team has ensured that all safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose. You are unwavering in your determination to follow through every concern. The Child and Family Support Worker has an excellent understanding of the issues facing the community. She has the trust and confidence of the community and offers extensive, effective support to families. The records and dayto-day notes reflect this. Staff value the constant support, training and guidance that they receive for safeguarding. Their comments include: ‘Everyone knows that keeping the children safe is the top priority. The child is at the centre of every decision and we pull together. It’s like a family – we take care of each other.’ The curriculum supports pupils to become more independent and to prepare them to be responsible citizens. They have a mature understanding about how to make good choices and to recognise and avoid risk. Governors work closely with the school to ensure that safeguarding arrangements are thorough. Effective systems are in place to carry out checks on different aspects of safeguarding, including online safety and staff recruitment. Through regular training, staff and governors have an up-to-date knowledge of procedures and understand the importance of being vigilant and identifying pupils’ needs early.
