School Description

Chantry Academy is smaller than the average-sized secondary school. Most pupils are from a White British background and very few speak English as an additional language. The proportion of pupils with SEND is above average. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils supported by the pupil premium is well above average. The school is sponsored by the Active Learning Trust. It joined the trust in 2015. The board of trustees for the Active Learning Trust is responsible for the governance of the school but has delegated some responsibilities to a small local governing body (LGB). The LGB is responsible for holding the headteacher to account for the standards of education in the school. There are currently a small number of pupils in key stage 4 who are attending full-time alternative provision at Suffolk New College. Inspection report: Chantry Academy, 6–7 November 2018 Page 8 of 10 Information about this inspection Inspectors made visits to classes to observe learning in all key stages. Inspectors also visited form periods. Some of these visits were made jointly with school leaders. Inspectors also scrutinised pupils’ work in a range of subjects and spoke to pupils about their learning. Meetings were held with senior and middle leaders, three members of the governing body and the trust’s director of school improvement and its secondary adviser. The lead inspector also had a telephone conversation with the chief executive officer of the trust. Inspectors considered the 48 responses to Ofsted’s staff questionnaire. Inspectors reviewed a range of school documents and policies, including behaviour and attendance information, pupil-progress information, the school’s own evaluation of its performance, minutes of the local governing body meetings and documentation relating to the safeguarding and well-being of pupils. Inspectors met with groups of pupils from each key stage and spoke to pupils when observing them at informal times, such as breaktime and lunchtime, to gather their views on the school. There were no responses to Ofsted’s online pupil survey. Inspectors considered the 132 responses to Ofsted’s online parent survey, Parent View, and the 32 free-text comments submitted by parents.

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.
