School Description

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. You are an experienced headteacher. You work with a clear moral purpose to ensure that the best possible provision and practice are in place to support pupils’ learning. You have taken effective action to raise standards and to improve attendance by bringing in new teachers to strengthen the staff team. The school has good capacity to continue moving forward. You and your governors have set ambitious targets, and these are reflected in your plans for improvement. These plans are based on clear evidence and are fit for purpose. The school’s evaluation of its effectiveness is accurate. Working successfully with your leaders and governors, you have addressed the key priorities for improvement identified at the last inspection. You are now driving the school to the next level. For example, teachers now ensure that there is a high level of challenge in all lessons. As a result, more pupils make substantial progress and reach higher standards. Teachers share their good practice across the school with good effect. For example, teachers across all year groups now work together to ensure that pupils consistently and securely learn, use and apply their knowledge of letters and sounds. Following the 2016 national assessments, you identified that reading for understanding was an issue. To address this, you have put in place new materials, approaches and staff training. This has improved the teaching of reading and introduced a tight focus on reading comprehension. Nevertheless, you accept that there is more to be done to make sure that these improvements become fully established.

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.
