School Description

The headteacher, who was in post at the time of the previous inspection, left in December 2017. The deputy headteacher was appointed as interim headteacher until the present headteacher recently took up his post. The school has a specialist resource unit for a small number of pupils who have physical disabilities. They attend mainstream lessons. A new sixth form opened in September 2017 with a small number of students. The school is smaller than the average secondary school. The proportion of pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities is above average. Inspection report: Thamesview School, 19–20 June 2018 Page 9 of 11 The proportion of disadvantaged pupils is above average. The large majority of pupils come from White British backgrounds. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is low but increasing. A very small number of pupils attend alternative, off-site provision at the Rosemary Centre, a pupil referral unit. The school meets the government’s current floor standards.

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.

BY PARENTS, FOR PARENTS

“Thamesview”
AUTHOR:
"> Thamesview school is a great school although I would say there are things that hold Thamesview back from being a great school. The staff can be petty and some members of senior staff don't seem to know what they're doing. However, the English, maths and business departments are outstanding.
