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. Following your appointment as headteacher in September 2018, you quickly obtained an accurate picture of the school’s effectiveness. Your actions to secure further improvements are focused on maintaining high-quality teaching and learning. For instance, you and your team have introduced ‘non-negotiables’ so staff are clear about leaders’ expectations. Alongside this, you ensure that staff have opportunities to share and develop their teaching skills through a network of local schools. Staff feel well supported and morale is high. Parents and carers told me that their children are making good progress because of the effective support the school offers. You are ambitious to strengthen the curriculum so that pupils’ outcomes across all subjects are equally as strong as those found in reading, writing and mathematics. While this work is recent, there are clear signs that the changes you have made are raising standards. Nevertheless, further work is needed to ensure that these changes are fully embedded across all subjects, particularly in art and music. You have worked closely with senior leaders and staff to ensure that the school is a welcoming and inclusive environment. Pupils are polite and respectful to adults as well as each other. In classrooms, pupils are supportive and considerate of their peers and are keen to ensure that everyone is included in activities and discussions. Governors are knowledgeable about the strengths of the school and the areas for continuous improvement. You provide governors with accurate and detailed information about the school’s effectiveness. Governors use this information effectively to hold leaders to account as well as to provide extra support when it is needed. For example, governors maintain strong oversight of the pupil premium funding and whether leaders use it well to improve the progress of disadvantaged pupils. The chair of governors and other members of the governing body make regular visits to the school and fulfil their statutory duties. Parents are positive about the school’s work. Parents that I spoke to, and those who responded to Ofsted’s survey, said that their children are safe and happy and praised the school’s caring atmosphere. They particularly appreciate that the leadership team welcomes them and their children to school in the morning. You also provide parents with numerous opportunities to support their children’s learning. For instance, parents spoke enthusiastically about the ‘Stay and Learn’ sessions which provide them with guidance on how to help with homework. Safeguarding is effective. Safeguarding is a high priority at your school. Through my discussions with leaders and parents, it is clear that pupils’ well-being is paramount among all members of the school community. Leaders ensure that all safeguarding arrangements and records are in place, accurate and up to date. Comprehensive records show that all staff, governors and volunteers receive regular safeguarding training. This includes the latest government legislation. Staff and governors receive regular updates about current safeguarding practice, including case studies, to promote a culture of vigilance. Staff know the signs that can indicate that a pupil is at risk of harm and what they must do if they have concerns. Leaders have effective systems for the recruitment and induction of new staff, governors and volunteers so that all those who work in the school are clear about their safeguarding duties. Leaders work in effective partnership with outside agencies so that vulnerable pupils are kept safe. Pupils told me that they feel safe at school. Inspection findings Our first key line of enquiry considered the impact of leaders’ work to strengthen the provision for children in the early years. This was an area for improvement identified at the previous inspection. Furthermore, the proportion of children attaining a good level of development by the end of the Reception Year remains below the national average. Since the previous inspection, leaders have improved the quality of children’s learning in the outdoor areas. Teaching is well planned and takes account of children’s interests. Teachers give careful consideration to resources and activities that will motivate children to try new experiences, both independently and with support from adults. Attractive displays celebrate children’s learning and help to build their confidence.
