School Description

The school converted to an academy in the Autumn Term 2012. The new headteacher was formally appointed eight days before the inspection, but has been in an acting position since September 2014. She was previously the assistant headteacher. The assistant headteacher and subject leaders have not yet been formally appointed. The middle leader with a responsibility for Key Stage 1 was appointed in September 2013. She is currently the acting assistant headteacher. This is a much smaller than average primary school. There is one full-time reception class and no nursery. Reception and younger Year 1 children are in Class 1, while the older Year 1 and Year 2 work in Class 2. In Key Stage 2, Years 3 and 4 and Years 4 and 5 are combined into 2 classes. Year 6 are taught in a separate class. There are fewer girls than average. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils known to be eligible for funding through the pupil premium is much lower than the national average. The pupil premium is additional government funding which supports pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals or children who are looked after by the local authority. Figures are too small to generate meaningful statistics. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds and those with special educational needs or those with a disability is well below the national average. The school meets the current government floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress in English and mathematics at the end of Year 6. The school works with other schools in the local cluster of schools and very closely with the parish.

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 last School Census (released annually in July).

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 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 last 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.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.
