School Description

The school is smaller than the average-sized primary school. Children attend the Reception class full-time. Most pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils in the school is above average. The proportion of pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities is above average. The proportion of pupils with a statement of special educational needs or an education, health and care plan is below average. Since the previous inspection, the school has experienced significant turbulence in staffing, including in the senior leadership team. Following the retirement of the previous headteacher, an executive headteacher assumed the interim leadership of the school, part-time, in September 2017. The deputy headteacher, who was appointed in January 2016, took up the role of head of school at the same time. A number of staff, including the leader of the early years, are new to their post since the previous inspection. The chair and vice-chair of governors have been appointed to their roles since the previous inspection. Several staff have experienced lengthy periods of absence through ill health since the previous inspection. The school provides a breakfast and after-school club for its pupils. Inspection report: St John Vianney Catholic Primary School, 14–15 March 2018 Page 10 of 13 Pre-school provision, St John Vianney First Steps, is managed by the governing body. This flexible, part-time provision is available for children prior to entering the Reception class. It is funded separately from the school and formed part of this inspection. The school receives support from the executive headteacher’s school, St Austin’s Catholic Primary School. St John Vianney Catholic Primary School is a member of a local network of schools. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics by the end of Year 6. The school is much larger than the average-size primary school. Since the previous inspection the number on roll has risen significantly as the school now provides nursery provision for two and three year olds. Children attend the Nursery classes part time. Timings of sessions are flexible. There are two Reception classes which the children attend full time. Not all children who attend Nursery gain a place in the over-subscribed Reception classes. The school has a specially resourced provision for pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities. This comprises of a small class for seven pupils with complex learning needs. Pupils are educated both within their base and sometimes in the mainstream classes. Most pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils in the school is low. The proportion of pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities is lower than average. The proportion of pupils with a statement of special educational needs or an education, and health care plan is high. Since the previous inspection, the school has experienced a number of staffing changes. The current headteacher and deputy headteacher took up their posts in January 2016. The SENCo and leader of the early years have also joined the staff. Nearly half of the staff have joined the school since the previous inspection. The chair of governors and vice chair of governors have been appointed to their roles since the previous inspection. The school provides a breakfast and- after school club for its pupils. It also provides holiday clubs for pupils. The school receives support from headteacher of Boughton Heath Academy who is a national leader of education. Bexton Primary School is a member of the Knutsford cluster of schools. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics by the end of Year 6.

The concentration of pupils shows likelihood of admission based on distance criteria

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.
