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 criteria in which schools use to allocate places in the event that they are oversubscribed can and do vary between schools and over time. These criteria can include distance from the school and sometimes specific catchment areas but can also include, amongst others, priority for siblings, children of a particular faith or specific feeder schools. Living in an area where children have previously attended a school does not guarantee admission to the school in future years. Always check with the school’s own admission authority for the current admission arrangements.

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.

School Description

St Marie’s is an average-sized school, situated in central Bury. It is a very popular school and has been oversubscribed for a number of years. Two thirds of pupils speak a first language other than English. This proportion is increasing. Most of these pupils are of eastern European or Asian heritage. The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities is similar to national, as is the proportion of pupils who are disadvantaged. There are more girls on role than boys. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for attainment and progress in English and mathematics. There is provision for before- and after-school care on the same site as the school which is subject to a different inspection. The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website. Inspection report: St Marie’s Roman Catholic Primary School, Bury, 1–2 December 2016 Page 9 of 11 Information about this inspection During the inspection, meetings were held with the headteacher, the deputy headteacher, teaching staff, a group of pupils, six members of the governing body and a representative of the local authority. The lead inspector met with the school’s family support worker. Documents were scrutinised including safeguarding checks, child protection information, pupils’ achievement tracking and records of checks on the quality of teaching. Inspectors considered school evaluations and improvement plans. Inspectors visited classrooms and spoke to pupils, looked at their books and observed their learning. Inspectors listened to pupils read. Inspectors scrutinised work produced by both current and past pupils and over a range of subjects. Inspectors observed pupils playing at break and lunchtimes. Inspectors took account of seven online parental comments. They considered 13 online survey responses made by staff and eight pupil responses. Inspectors spoke with parents.
