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 Teresa’s is a family-oriented school. It provides a nurturing environment for all pupils. Pupils enjoy coming to school. Teachers have high expectations of pupils. Pupils are polite and behave well. They respect people’s differences. Most pupils listen carefully in lessons and work hard. They play happily together at breaktimes and lunchtimes. Pupils who spoke with the inspector said that they feel happy and safe at the school. They know that staff are there to help them if they have any worries. Pupils told the inspector that bullying is uncommon. They are confident that staff would deal with any incidents that occur. Pupils spoke with enthusiasm about the extra-curricular activities that they experience, such as musical theatre. They enjoy taking on positions of responsibility, such as playground buddies and school councillors. Many parents and carers spoke highly about the positive work of the staff and the support that their children received with remote education during the disruption caused by COVID-19 (coronavirus). A typical comment was, ‘I am delighted with the way my child is progressing and the care and support provided each and every day.’ What does the school do well and what does it need to do better? Leaders and governors are ambitious for all pupils. Pupils learn the full range of national curriculum subjects. Curriculum plans clearly set out what pupils should know and when. This helps teachers to build on pupils’ learning as they move through the school. Pupils achieve well. Year 6 pupils are well prepared for the next stage of their education. Pupils learn phonics as soon as they start in the Reception Class. Staff are well trained and all follow the same approach in teaching daily phonics sessions. In the early years, children have many opportunities to develop and extend their vocabulary. Children and pupils read books that are matched to the sounds that they know. Staff make sure that children and pupils who struggle to read receive extra support to help them catch up quickly. Younger pupils use their phonics knowledge well to sound out unfamiliar words. They are becoming confident and fluent readers. Older pupils said that they enjoy reading and spoke enthusiastically about their favourite authors and books. Leaders have changed the order of content in some practical subjects, such as science and music. This is helping to plug gaps in pupils’ knowledge which may have been missed due to the pandemic. Teachers use their strong subject knowledge, such as in art and mathematics, to explain subject content clearly. Children and pupils have opportunities to revisit and build on their previous learning. Teachers use assessment information well in some subjects, such as in mathematics, to check what pupils know and can do. However, in some other subjects, the systems used to check pupils’ learning are not well developed. This means that teachers are unaware of how well pupils are understanding and remembering new content. Some subject leaders are new to their roles. Senior leaders have plans in place to develop their expertise so that they can monitor the delivery of their subjects more effectively. Teachers adapt their plans and resources to ensure that the needs of pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) are met. Leaders work well with a range of external agencies to support these pupils. Pupils with SEND are fully included in the life of the school. They achieve well. There is a calm and orderly atmosphere both in lessons and around the school. This helps pupils to learn without disruption. Leaders place a strong emphasis on supporting pupils’ mental health. This helps pupils to deal with difficulties in their lives. Leaders promote pupils’ wider personal development well. Pupils learn about different faiths and cultures. This helps them to be prepared for life in modern Britain. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, pupils enjoyed a wide range of opportunities to enhance their learning. For example, pupils told the inspector how much they enjoyed attending residential visits. Pupils spoke excitedly about a recent outdoor education visit and sports activities, such as judo and cricket, which have restarted. Staff enjoy working at the school. They said that leaders are considerate of their workload and well-being. Governors want the best for pupils. They have an accurate view of the school’s strengths and weaknesses because they meet regularly with leaders. Governors challenge and support leaders in equal measure.
