School Description

Thames View Infants converted to become an academy in September 2012. When its predecessor school, Thames View Infants School, was last inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be outstanding. This is an above-average-sized school. The majority of pupils come from a number of minority ethnic groups. The largest groups are of African heritage. Almost three quarters of pupils speak English as an additional language. The proportions of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs who are in need of extra help or have a statement of special educational needs are well above national averages. The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium (extra government funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, children in local authority care and children of service personnel) is well above the national average. All pupils in this group are those eligible for free school meals, and some are looked after children. In 2013, the school received recognition from the Deputy Prime Minister for its success in ensuring that pupils entitled to this fund make excellent progress. The headteacher is a national leader of education (NLE) and the school supports the improvement of a number of local schools, provides placements and support for senior staff who wish to attain the National Professional Qualification for Headship (NPQH) and for students studying for a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) from the University of East London.

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.
