School Description

St Michael’s East Wickham Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School converted to become an academy on 1 September 2017. When its predecessor school, of the same name, was last inspected by Ofsted it was judged to be outstanding overall. Many of the teaching staff from the predecessor school transferred directly across into the new academy. In the Spring term, prior to opening, the assistant headteacher of the predecessor school was appointed as the current headteacher. Shortly after, two long-standing teachers were appointed as joint assistant headteachers. All current class teachers, except for the early years leader, were employed from the predecessor school. St Michael’s East Wickham Church of England Primary School is an average-sized primary school with one class in each year group across key stages 1 and 2. One Inspection report: St Michael’s East Wickham Church of England Primary School, 5–6 March 2019 Page 9 of 12 Reception class makes up the early years. The school is part of the Southwark Diocesan Board of Education Multi-Academy Trust. The Southwark Diocesan Board of Education (SDBE) Multi-Academy Trust, in operation since September 2016, is a trust comprising one secondary and nine primary schools. The three members act as custodians, while the board of trustees collectively oversees the management and administration of the trust as a whole, delegating authority and responsibility to the strategic advisory board (local governing bodies) as specified in the trusts scheme of delegation. The chair referred to above is the chair of the local governing body. The school benefits from both education and operational support received from within the multi-academy trust, and from support brokered by the trust through the diocese’s school improvement service. Most pupils are from a White British background. Very few pupils are known to be eligible for the pupil premium, and the proportion of pupils with special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities is below average. The school provides an Anglican education for pupils between three to 11 years of age. This Anglican education provision was judged ‘good’ at the school’s most recent section 48 inspection, which took place in February 2019.

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.
