School Description

Tamworth Enterprise College has been part of the AET since 2012. The number on roll has fallen since the previous inspection. The vast majority of pupils are from White British backgrounds. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds is well below the national average. The proportion who speak English as an additional language is well below the national average. The proportion of pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities is average. The proportion of pupils who are eligible for support through the pupil premium is above the national average. The school works with Kettlebrook Short Stay School in Tamworth. This is a pupil referral unit and is used to provide alternative provision for some pupils. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectation for pupils’ attainment and progress. Inspection report: Tamworth Enterprise College and AET Academy, 20–21 June 2018 Page 8 of 10 Information about this inspection Inspectors observed teaching across 35 lessons. Samples of the work of pupils in Years 7 to 10 were scrutinised. A range of school documents were analysed, including the school’s improvement plan, the school’s self-evaluation, some individual subject plans and the pupil premium strategy. We also looked at current pupils’ progress records, records relating to behaviour and attendance, governing body minutes and documents relating to how pupils are kept safe. Meetings were held with groups of pupils from Years 7 to 10, and pupils’ views were also sought during lessons and during breaktimes and lunchtimes. Meetings were held with two members of the governing body, including the ‘peer principal’ who also attends governing body meetings. A telephone conversation was held with the national director from AET. Other meetings were held with the ‘peer principal’, a headteacher from another school in the trust who has been supporting the school. Discussions took place with senior leaders, middle leaders, newly qualified teachers and leaders responsible for safeguarding and for those pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities. Inspectors took into account the response of 12 parents and carers to the Ofsted online questionnaire, Parent View. Inspectors also considered comments from parents. The school was unable to send out the staff questionnaire, but inspectors held brief meetings in person with 18 members of the teaching and support staff. There were no responses to the pupil questionnaire.

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 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.
