School Description

St Margaret of Scotland Catholic Primary School is a larger than average-sized primary school. The school became a part of the St Albans Catholic Academy Trust in September 2015. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for pupil premium funding is similar to the national average. The proportion of pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities is below average. The proportion of pupils who have a statement of special educational needs or an education, health and care plan is below average. The percentage of pupils whose first language is not, or believed not to be, English is above the national average. In 2017, the school met the government’s current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment in English and mathematics. Inspection report: St Margaret of Scotland Catholic Primary School, 9–10 May 2018 Page 10 of 12 Information about this inspection Learning was observed in all classes, including where pupils learned in small groups such as in the ‘ready to learn’ room. The majority of learning was observed jointly with the headteacher and the deputy headteacher. Additionally, the deputy headteacher joined the lead inspector for a learning walk around the school. Leaders also joined inspectors to scrutinise a wide range of children’s and pupils’ books. The lead inspector met with two trust representatives, including the chief executive officer, and also held a meeting with two members of the local governing body, one of whom was the chair of governors. Inspectors met with the assistant headteacher, phase leaders and the mathematics and English subject leaders. Inspectors observed other aspects of the school’s work, such as assemblies, smallgroup work, learning in the ‘ready to learn’ room and the ‘learning zone’. The lead inspector also met with the family workers and visited a ‘stay and play’ session. Inspectors spoke with parents at the start of the school day. In addition to this, inspectors took account of 25 responses to the Ofsted free-text system and 25 responses to the Ofsted’s online survey, Parent View. Inspectors also took account of the school’s most recent parent view survey. Inspectors took account of 47 responses to the staff questionnaire and spoke with a cross-section of staff to discuss their views of the school and how they have been supported. The inspectors examined a full range of documents, including information about pupils’ progress, school improvement plans, information about teachers’ performance and external views of the school. They reviewed the contents of the school’s website and closely scrutinised records relating to behaviour, attendance and safeguarding.

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.
