School Description

The school is much larger than the average-sized secondary school. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils supported through the pupil premium is broadly average. One in four pupils are disadvantaged. The large majority of pupils are White British. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is below average. The proportion of pupils who have support for special educational needs and/or disabilities is below average. The proportion of pupils who have an education, health and care plan is average. Inspection report: St John Fisher Catholic Voluntary Academy, 8–9 May 2019 Page 10 of 13 The headteacher’s appointment was made permanent on 1 January 2018 after three months as acting headteacher. The school uses four alternative providers, Brian Jackson College, Ethos, Pivot and Nexus, for a small number of pupils in Years 10 and 11. The school is a member of the Blessed Peter Snow Catholic Academy Trust. The trust is governed by a board of trustees known as a trust board. Currently, there are two primary schools and St John Fisher Catholic Voluntary School, with each school having its own academy council. After the previous inspection, the trust decided to remove all delegated powers from the academy council of St John Fisher Catholic Voluntary Academy and establish a trust intervention board (TIB) with a new chair of governors. The TIB holds the headteacher to account for his responsibilities and reports back to the trust board. The trust board has designated responsibility for the effectiveness of the school. The school uses the Yorkshire Teaching School Alliance and a national leader of education to provide some aspects of professional development and support for staff and leaders. External reviews of the pupil premium and governance have recently taken place. The school’s religious character is Roman Catholic and is part of the Diocese of Leeds. The last section 48 inspection took place in May 2018.

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.
