School Description

The school has experienced a period of turbulence in staffing and change in pupil population. Over recent years, the school has changed from being an infant school to a primary school and the number of pupils on roll has risen significantly since the last inspection. The school published key stage 2 national test results for the first time in 2017. The current headteacher took up post in January 2018. The deputy headteacher joined the school in September 2018. This school is much larger than the average-sized primary school. A high proportion of pupils speak English as an additional language. Over 40 languages are spoken across the school. The proportion of pupils with SEND is lower than average. The proportion of pupils who benefit from the pupil premium funding is broadly average. Inspection report: St Mary’s Fields Primary School, 26–27 March 2019 Page 8 of 10 Information about this inspection Inspectors observed learning in 29 lessons, or parts of lessons, some of which were observed jointly with senior leaders. They observed pupils’ participation in assembly and examined pupils’ books from across the school. Inspectors held several meetings with the headteacher and the deputy headteacher. They met with five members of the governing body, including the chair, and a representative from the local authority. Meetings were also held with a member of staff from the social, emotional and mental health team, and two teachers who are new to the profession. Meetings were also held with leaders of English, mathematics, the early years, pupils with SEND and those who speak English as an additional language. Inspectors also spoke with two other subject leaders and the leader with responsibility for the pupils’ eco-committee. Inspectors met with parents as they brought their children to school and considered the 41 responses to the online survey, Parent View. They considered the 24 responses to the online survey for staff. Inspectors spoke with pupils in class and on the playground, considered the 47 responses to their online survey, met formally with two groups of pupils and listened to three pupils reading. Inspectors considered a wide range of school documentation, including leaders’ selfevaluation of the school, the school development plan, minutes of governors’ meetings and documentation relating to the safeguarding of pupils.

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.
