School Description

St Matthew’s CofE Primary School is part of the Frays Academy Trust. It converted into an academy in February 2013. The predecessor school was judged as outstanding in 2009. The school is larger than the average-sized primary school. The majority of pupils come from a White British background. The proportion of pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities is slightly above the national average. The proportion of pupils with an EHC plan is similar to the national average. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils is similar to the national average. The acting headteacher took up her post in September 2018. She is supported by the executive headteacher. The school has a religious character designation and had its last section 48 inspection in 2015. Inspection report: St Matthew’s CofE Primary School, 2–3 October 2018 Page 8 of 10 Information about this inspection The inspection was carried out with one day’s notice. The inspection was originally a section 8 no formal designation inspection. By the afternoon of day 1 of the inspection, inspectors agreed to convert the inspection to a section 5 inspection. Meetings were held with members of the trust, the governing body, senior leaders, middle leaders and staff. Inspectors observed learning in all year groups at least four times. Most lesson observations were undertaken jointly with members of the trust, senior leaders and middle leaders. Inspectors scrutinised pupils’ work in lessons and through a formal scrutiny of a large sample of books. Inspectors agreed to the school’s request to also scrutinise a small sample of books from the previous year in English and mathematics. Inspectors spoke with pupils to discuss their learning and views about the school. This included pupils taking an inspector on a tour of the school. Inspectors considered a range of documentation, including attendance records, leaders’ records of monitoring, behaviour records and documents relating to safeguarding. Inspectors took into account the responses to Ofsted’s online surveys, including 57 responses from parents, 49 from staff and 27 from pupils. Inspectors also took into account the views of parents at the end of the first day.

Pupil heat map key

(01895) 556644

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.
