School Description

This is an average-sized primary school. There have been significant changes to the structure of the school’s leadership team since the last inspection. The headteacher was appointed as acting executive headteacher in September 2016. She became the permanent executive headteacher in 2017. A new assistant headteacher with responsibility for teaching and learning was appointed in January 2018. A new school manager was appointed in September 2018. Over half of the pupils in the school are from minority ethnic groups. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is double the national average. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils in the school is broadly average. The proportion of pupils who have support for SEND is average. The proportion of pupils who have an education, health and care plan is average. A larger-than-average proportion of pupils join or leave the school within the school year. Inspection report: St Francis Xavier Catholic Primary School, 11–12 December 2018 Page 9 of 11 Information about this inspection Inspectors observed learning in all classes. They carried out some observations jointly with the executive headteacher and assistant headteacher. Inspectors scrutinised a wide range of pupils’ work and listened to pupils read. An inspector met with a group of pupils to discuss their views and opinions of the school. They observed pupils during the school day, at playtimes and at the start of the school day. Inspectors took account of 16 responses to Parent View, Ofsted’s online questionnaire, and parental comments. An inspector spoke with parents at the start of the school day. Inspectors spoke to staff and took account of their views through the responses to the staff questionnaire. Meetings were held with governors, senior leaders and representatives from the local authority. Inspectors examined a wide range of documents. These included the school’s review of its own performance, the school’s development plan, governing body minutes, external reviews, information about the progress of pupils, behaviour and attendance records and documents relating to safeguarding.

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.
