School Description

Pupils at St Mary’s Infants enjoy coming to school. They told inspectors that teachers help them to do their best. Pupils say that they feel happy and safe at school and their parents agree. One parent summed up the views of others in their praise for the changes that the new headteacher has made. Parents welcome the higher expectations for what children can do. Pupils say that bullying rarely happens. They know that teachers will deal quickly with any incidents if they do occur. Pupils elected to the school council enjoy their responsibilities in reporting to the headteacher and chair of governors. Staff are working hard to make sure that pupils receive a full and rich curriculum. The impact of staff’s work is evident in the teaching of mathematics and science. However, this is not yet the case in Reception, where the curriculum is still developing. Pupils demonstrate the values of the school through their behaviour. They show respect towards each other, towards their teachers and towards other adults. Leaders have made sure that pupils learn about British values and the wider world in which pupils live. Pupils are suitably prepared for the next stage of their education.

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.
