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. Under your clear and caring leadership, assisted well by the deputy headteacher, this school is a wonderfully supportive place for its pupils to learn. Parents and pupils are understandably very pleased. One parent spoke of their child being ‘cherished’. Another said that the school ‘instils confidence, independence and an iron will to learn. It also provides the most wonderful, nurturing community.’ The school’s inclusive Christian framework very successfully encourages pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, as well as good values. Pupils behave very well. Their rate of attendance is high. They are kind, polite, smart, understanding, confident and considerate. Many pupils take responsibility by, for example, serving actively on the school council, as a playground ‘buddy’, or by leading prayer and worship. Teaching is consistently effective. Relationships between adults and pupils are very positive. Pupils enjoy a wide range of interesting learning tasks. Staff are supported and guided well in their training and development. Adults in teaching and support roles universally enjoy their work, going the extra mile to give of their best to the pupils. One said, for example, ‘the leaders have helped me grow and develop as a teacher. I consider myself very lucky to work here.’ The previous inspection report recommended working to improve pupils’ outcomes in reading and writing. This has been achieved. Pupils generally progress well in these subjects. This is also true in mathematics, a consistently successful subject. Pupils’ attainment in reading, writing and mathematics is above average in national testing. Across the year groups, pupils write with clear purpose. They present their work carefully. However, sometimes their spelling is inaccurate and the school is working on this. Pupils read with good expression, enjoyment and accuracy. They can correct mistakes independently, demonstrating a good knowledge of phonics. At the same time, relatively few pupils reach the higher standards in reading and writing in key stage 1 and key stage 2. This indicates a clear point for further improvement in the school, with which you agree. This is to raise expectations of all pupils higher still, so that they achieve excellently across all of the subjects. Safeguarding is effective.  The school looks after its pupils very well. Staff go out of their way to appreciate and really understand the needs of each child individually, seeking to work together with parents.  The leadership team ensures that all safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose and records are detailed and of high quality. The school makes systematic checks on adults working in the school. The safeguarding policy is thorough and up to date; governors check that it is followed. The school site is welcoming but secure. Staff understand clearly the safeguarding procedures.  Pupils receive valuable teaching about keeping safe, including when online. During the inspection, older pupils benefited from a session led by the community police officer. Inspection findings  In lessons, staff explain things well and check carefully that pupils understand. They show accurate subject knowledge, engaging pupils’ interest and commitment. They manage pupils’ behaviour effectively and with good humour. These strengths in teaching lead to the good progress pupils make.  Pupils really enjoy a very broad and interesting curriculum. This includes visits out and a wide and popular range of activities out of school hours. Pupils can all succeed in the arts, humanities, science and sport, as well as English and mathematics. Religious education has a high profile. Pupils explain very clearly the importance of faith. They know much about Christianity and talk with good understanding about their visits to the gurdwara, mosque and synagogue.  Leaders of all the subjects work hard and creatively. They promote their subjects successfully. However, there is scope for them to ensure even higher expectations of pupils. Much of what pupils achieve is good but not yet excellent. For instance, the singing which I heard on separate occasions was enthusiastic and well controlled but there was room for further improvement in pitching, use of dynamics and the breadth and challenge in the repertoire.
