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.

School Description

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. Pupils at St Augustine’s School continue to learn and to achieve well. You have built a culture of high expectations for all, where staff and pupils strive for excellence. Relationships throughout the school are very strong. Pupils and staff flourish in the calm, respectful and purposeful atmosphere. All parents and carers who responded to Ofsted’s free-text service were united in their praise for the school. Many parents explained how quickly their children had settled into life at St Augustine’s or how their older children had gone on to settle well at secondary school. Parents also reported that school staff are very friendly and approachable. During the inspection, pupils told me they enjoy school because it is ‘very friendly and welcoming’. Pupils explained that they always make new children ‘feel part of St Augustine’s family’ and that they ‘don’t judge people as we all get along together’. Pupils say teachers make lessons fun and plan ‘good trips’, including camping and visits to the dinosaur museum. Pupils in all key stages make good progress across a range of subjects because teaching is strong and no time is wasted in lessons. Pupils respond very well to adults’ high expectations. As a result, pupils settle to learning quickly, they work hard, they are very keen to contribute to lessons and they take pride in presenting their work carefully. At the last inspection, the school was asked to give greater attention to spelling, punctuation and grammar. You have done this successfully by helping staff to understand what pupils in each year group should be able to achieve in these skills. In addition, you have developed an effective system to check that all pupils are making good progress towards the end of year age-related expectations for spelling, punctuation and grammar. You are well supported by an able team of senior leaders and skilled governors. All leaders have an accurate view of the school’s strengths and weaknesses in teaching and learning. You and your team act quickly to provide support where it is needed. While pupils make good progress across all key stages, you are not complacent about the school’s success. The school’s improvement plan is well focused on further improving standards so that all outcomes in all key stages are at least in line with the national average. However, the improvement plan is not precise about the end goals for pupils’ outcomes or how leaders will check for success at different points along the way. Safeguarding is effective. The leadership team, including governors, have ensured that safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose. School staff have up-to-date training so they have a good understanding of the school’s systems for keeping pupils safe, and of areas of risk, including female genital mutilation. Pupils say school is a safe and happy place where there is ‘always someone to talk to or comfort you’. Pupils explained to me how they learn how to keep themselves safe through special talks with the police, learning about racism and hate crime through work with Nottingham Forest Football Club, and school assemblies. Pupils report bullying is very rare. Pupils’ attendance is above the national average and persistent absence is rare. Any concerns about attendance are followed up rigorously. Your team works well with families and outside agencies to ensure that pupils have the support they need to stay safe. Records of any concerns about pupils are of high quality. Inspection findings At the start of the inspection, we agreed the areas that I would review to check if the school remained good. I looked particularly at the pupils’ writing, how effectively leaders are ensuring that the pupil premium funding is used to support disadvantaged pupils, and the school’s approach to managing behaviour, and how well pupils do in science. You and your team have successfully focused on improving teaching and learning in writing. Children get off to a good start in the early years and key stage 1, because the teaching of phonics is consistently strong. All adults are well trained in this area. As a result, children and pupils develop the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to make very good attempts at spelling simple words.
