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 leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. Along with your established senior leaders and governors, you continue to provide strong leadership to this school. You drive a whole-school culture where, to use your words, it is ‘our improvement plan’. Your staff understand what the school’s priorities are and are highly committed to helping you implement your vision for excellence. You lead a happy, secure, motivated school. The strong sense of warmth and happiness in the school begins at the gate when pupils and parents greet each other and staff at the start of the school day, and continues through lessons and free time. As one pupil said, ‘It feels like home.’ The school achieves a fine balance between striving for academic success and maintaining a focus on pupils’ well-being. The culture was summed up well by one parent, who said that the pupils are ‘pushed but not stressed’. Leaders and teachers are ambitious for their pupils, but they are equally keen to ensure that there are plenty of opportunities for pupils to experience a rich curriculum and develop their talents to the full. These include experience of the arts and sport, with many classrooms and corridors colourfully displaying exhibits from previous creative days. All pupils have the chance to learn a musical instrument in Year 5 and they talk proudly about their lessons on drums, clarinet or saxophone. Pupils say that they feel safe and that they are learning every day. Older pupils have lots of opportunities to get involved in the running of the school through positions such as member of the school council or sports crew and as junior road safety officers.
