School Description

The school meets the Department for Education’s definition of a coasting school based on key stage 2 academic performance results in 2014, 2015 and 2016. The school does not meet requirements on the publication of information about Year 7 catch-up funding on its website. The school complies with Department for Education guidance on what academies should publish. Swindon Academy is sponsored by United Learning Trust. Swindon Academy is larger than the average-sized school. It is built on two sites. One Inspection report: Swindon Academy, 24–25 May 2017 Page 11 of 14 site has pupils from age two to 19 and the other has pupils from age two to 11. The proportion of pupils supported by pupil premium funding is above the national average. The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities is above the national average, as is the proportion who have an education, health and care plan. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress at key stage 4 and for pupils’ attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics at the end of Year 6.

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.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.

Swindon Academy Reviews

Average Rating:

BY PARENTS, FOR PARENTS

“Good teachers”
AUTHOR:
"> The majority of the teachers at Swindon are good, however they are often let down by the communication side of things. They are quite often not told of things happening until the last minute which in turn means the parents do not know until the last minute.
