School Description

St John’s Church of England Primary School is a smaller-than-average sized primary school. Most pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals or in care of the local authority, for which the school receives the pupil premium, is below average. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is below average. The proportion of pupils who are supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is also below average. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress. The school runs after-school provision and this was included in the inspection. The school has a number of awards including Artsmark, BECTA ICT accreditation, and many links formed with the local community.

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.

BY PARENTS, FOR PARENTS

“A disappointing experience for some”
AUTHOR:
"> Unfortunately this school lacks creativity in it's delivery of the curriculum. It struggles to manage behaviour and standards of work positively, within the later classes of the school particularly, which can be humiliating and impair the children's opinions of one another. There is a strong focus on the rote learning of spelling, punctuation and grammar at the expense of other subjects which is possibly reflected in the 2016 SATS results for Y6. There are a small number of children within the school needing additional support and communication between teachers/SENCO/Parents around this can be lacking. I chose this school because I wanted a primary school that gets good results from it's children and has high standards of behaviour as I see myself as a strict but fair parent. I believe that boundaries are important and in that respect this school has lived up to my expectations. However, in this case I have found that it seems to mean that the school isn't able to celebrate the individuality of the children. The majority of children will be resilient and receive this education without issue. More sensitive children or children who don't 'fit' into the culture of this school can really struggle emotionally to cope here. This is a school where the government imposed stresses and strains can really be felt, possibly because it has a reputation of good results and high standards to uphold. It would help phenomenally for this school to put bureaucracy to one side and remember to make the children feel good about themselves and their capabilities whatever level they are working at. To have 'fun' at the apex of the school culture so that the children willingly and enthusiastically give the best of themselves rather than absorbing the pressures of political influence.
