School Description

Pupils, parents and staff love their school and all feel proud to be part of it. Leaders have created a calm, caring atmosphere. A strong Christian ethos ensures that everyone is respected. Parents with whom I spoke were keen to praise the school. One commented: ‘It’s a fantastic school. Staff are always approachable and go above and beyond to support the children in all aspects of their learning.’ This view was typical of the many comments left on Ofsted’s Parent View survey. Pupils behave very well. They are polite, kind and helpful. They show care and respect when working and playing together. They are not concerned about bullying but say that, if it did happen, teachers would deal with it immediately. Classroom ‘worry boxes’ ensure that if they have any worries, there is always an adult they can talk to. Links with the local community are strong and the school works closely with Pontefract Civic Society, the War Graves Commission and Pontefract Library. Pupils also support local community charities such as The Prince of Wales Hospice and events like the local Parkrun. These links enhance the curriculum. The junior leadership team, elected by their peers, focus on making their school and their local community a better place. They support younger pupils with their play equipment and carry out charity work. The school offers a wide range of extra-curricular clubs and visits that enhance learning. Leaders want all pupils to do as well as they can. They are well supported by very dedicated staff.

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.
