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

Stonebow is a happy school. Pupils love how well everyone gets on and how kind the teachers are to them. The school is calm and settled. Pupils behave well. They have great fun playing together outside. Many join in with the different activities led by the sports coach. They appreciate the exciting outdoor play area. Pupils feel safe at school. They say that there is very little bullying. If it occurs, it is soon sorted out. Staff expect all pupils to achieve well. Work is challenging for them. Pupils have lots of exciting events to look to forward to. When we visited the school, ‘Greek soldiers’ were telling pupils about life in Ancient Greece. Earlier the same week, another class had enjoyed a day that was all about India. Pupils and parents say that the school is like a big family. Events such as ‘Bedtime Stories’ and those put on by ‘The Friends of Stonebow’ are popular. The school is at the heart of the community. The school celebrates the achievement of pupils whose behaviour reflects the ‘Stonebow Powers’. These include ‘respect’, ‘enthusiasm’ and ‘cooperation’. Choosing just one pupil from each class each week is a difficult task! What does the school do well and what does it need to do better? Leaders have continued to improve the school since the last inspection. They expect everyone to do their best. Staff work together as a team so that they can meet the needs of all pupils. They say that leaders are effective in their role and are mindful of the work-life balance of staff. Children soon settle into the Reception Year. At the time of the inspection, they had only been in school a few days. They were already learning and playing together. Staff are kind and friendly. They meet with parents so that they get to know each child’s personality and needs. Children have great places to learn, both inside and outdoors. Getting pupils to read well is the school’s number one learning priority. Teachers make learning to read fun. They help any who are struggling with reading to catch up. We saw them using toys and the Goldilocks story to help children learn about the sounds that letters make. Children learn all they need to be ready for Year 1. Teachers in key stage 1 continue to teach early reading skills well. Teachers help pupils so they can read with understanding. Daily story-time sessions are very popular with pupils. They help pupils become keen readers. Pupils achieve well in this subject. In mathematics, teachers make sure that pupils build up their skills step by step. Pupils know their number facts and times tables. However, pupils’ achievement in Inspection report: Stonebow Primary School Loughborough 12–13 September 2019 2 this subject is not quite as high as in reading and writing. To do even better, they need more chances to use their number skills to solve tricky problems. Science is a strength of the curriculum. Pupils build up their knowledge and skills over time. They can remember science they were taught when they were younger. They enjoy testing their ideas and carrying out experiments. In most subjects, lessons build well upon what pupils have learned before. For example, in history, pupils connect what they learned about the Anglo-Saxons with Britain in Victorian times. This deepens their understanding of how family life changed over the centuries. Mostly, teachers check on how well pupils are learning. They make sure that pupils who may be falling behind get the help to catch up. Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities get any extra support they need. In music and in design and technology, leaders have not planned a curriculum that builds on pupils’ knowledge and understanding. There are some gaps in the things that pupils know. Teachers do not check and address this sufficiently well. Pupils enjoy their music lessons. However, not all of them have sufficient chance to learn to play instruments. Pupils behave well in lessons and around the school. They want to do their best and they work well together. Pupil’s personal development is good. Pupils are taught British values and are shown how to respect others. There are lots of different clubs that help them keep fit. There are also clubs where pupils enjoy things, such as singing, that interest them. Pupils are given opportunities to help out in school, such as joining the ‘eco warriors’ and ‘well-being champions’.
