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 leaders, governors and trustees have created a distinctive character to the school and provide a clear direction which creates a strong sense of community and purpose, motivating pupils and staff to achieve well. Leaders and governors are reflective and provide targeted plans to secure continuous improvement. Parents, carers and staff alike recognise the high quality and dedication of leadership in your school at all levels. Leaders are fulfilling the school’s aim: ‘I am strong through Jesus Christ to be the best I can be.’ Since the previous inspection, you have strengthened leadership by ensuring that leaders are well trained and share the same high aspirations as you in developing a strong culture for teaching, learning and good behaviour in the school. Teamwork is effective and staff want the best for all pupils. You enjoy the confidence of parents, staff and pupils, ensuring that standards have continued to rise since the last inspection. A typical parents’ comment was ‘My son is taught to be a better human being at St Cyprian’s and learned how to be a good citizen’, while another parent said, ‘There is a real sense of community within the school.’ Staff are happy in your school. You have an effective system for managing staff workload and they appreciate your efforts to prioritise their well-being. You manage staff performance well. You ensure that staff take responsibility for developing their own teaching, while working to achieve the school improvement priorities. Teaching remains a strong feature of the school. Teachers question pupils effectively and make sure that they have to think hard about their answers. Pupils are keen to listen to others and discuss their answers. You and your team have implemented a rich curriculum which provides pupils with strong literacy and numeracy skills, as well as good general knowledge, especially about Greek culture. Teachers and other adults are committed to pupils developing a wide range of vocabulary. Pupils in key stage 2 would benefit from further studying other elements of history and geography to ensure that their education is well rounded. You recognise in your strong school evaluation that writing outcomes for the most able at the end of key stage 2 are not where you want them to be and that those pupils could make better progress. Consequently, this academic year, you are focusing on improving the quality of teaching in writing. You told me that, to strengthen writing progress further, teachers are working on developing opportunities for writing across the wider curriculum and also on raising their overall expectations, particularly for the most able. Pupils are helpful, polite and well mannered. They listen well and respect the opinions of others. Their attitudes to learning are positive. Pupils enjoy their work and talk about their desire to do as well as they can. Pupils understand well the ethos of the school, with a number of pupils telling me, ‘We follow the St Cyprian’s way, which is to love, care and look after ourselves, our community, our school and each other.’ Pupils are keen to take on responsibilities. This was exemplified by the positive attitude of the school council. Pupils say that they enjoy the wide range of clubs, trips and special events that are on offer. On the day of the inspection, you were running a special school community breakfast to raise funds for cancer research. Governors have a good understanding of the school’s strengths and areas for development. This is because they visit regularly and know the school well. Governors keep their knowledge and skills up to date through regular training. They use their skills to keep a careful watch on the quality of the school culture and on pupils’ progress. They provide a good level of challenge for leaders through welltargeted and challenging questioning at meetings. Safeguarding is effective. The leadership team has ensured that all safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose. The school makes systematic and thorough checks on all staff, governors and volunteers. You have made sure that the site is safe and secure. Leaders and other staff are vigilant in spotting potential risks and they take action quickly to minimise them. The school is strong in supporting pupils and their families when they are in significant need. You and your senior staff are dogged in pursuing external help for pupils and take action to provide support if there is a delay in securing expertise.
