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 criteria in which schools use to allocate places in the event that they are oversubscribed can and do vary between schools and over time. These criteria can include distance from the school and sometimes specific catchment areas but can also include, amongst others, priority for siblings, children of a particular faith or specific feeder schools. Living in an area where children have previously attended a school does not guarantee admission to the school in future years. Always check with the school’s own admission authority for the current admission arrangements.

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.

School Description

The Academy, Selsey is a much smaller than average-sized mixed comprehensive school. The school has been an academy within The Kemnal Academies Trust since 2011. There is a local governing body that is accountable to the board of trustees. The school roll has a population that is mostly White British. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds or who speak English as an additional language is much lower than the national average. The proportion of pupils with SEND is above the national average. There is a higher-than-average proportion of disadvantaged pupils. The current headteacher and the chair of governors both took up their posts in 2016. The previous school buildings were destroyed in a fire in 2016. The school moved into new buildings in April 2019, after two-and-a-half years in temporary accommodation. Inspection report: The Academy, Selsey, 30 April to 1 May 2019 Page 8 of 10 Information about this inspection Inspectors visited 31 lessons, 27 jointly with school leaders. Inspectors also observed behaviour around the school, during breaktimes and at the beginning and end of the day. Inspectors looked at a wide sample of pupils’ work and met groups of pupils from both key stages to talk about their experience in the school. Inspectors met a range of staff, governors and representatives of The Kemnal Academies Trust. Inspectors scrutinised the school’s self-evaluation, improvement plan, pupils’ performance summaries, the school’s single central record of recruitment checks, child protection files, teaching and learning records, minutes of governors’ visits, analysis of pupils’ behaviour and attendance, documents and policies on the school’s website and reviewed safeguarding procedures. Inspectors considered 31 responses to Parent View, including 27 written comments, and studied the survey returns for 29 pupils and 34 members of staff.
