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. Although the school remains good, it is clear that it has improved since the last inspection. You are deeply committed to creating the very best educational experience for every pupil in your care and you are making good progress towards achieving this aim. You have created a hard-working, happy school that is clearly on a firm upward trajectory. You and the deputy headteacher work well together. You have different skills and personalities and these complement each other well. You share the same drive to continually move the school forward. Leadership is developing more widely within the school and this is having an impact on raising standards and improving the quality of teaching. Pupils behave very well because expectations are high and the rules are clear. Pupils are polite and friendly, good mannered and welcoming. There is an atmosphere of mutual respect in the school and adults model clearly how pupils should behave in their interactions with each other. Pupils love their school and have very positive attitudes to learning. You have developed a very rich and stimulating curriculum that is a real strength of the school. An example of this is the racing car project in which pupils worked with engineers over a six-month period to design and build a racing car. This culminated in every pupil in the group being given the opportunity to race the car on the track at Goodwood. Pupils told me, ‘we go to interesting places’, and they talked about a range of interesting visits they have been on, such as to Buckingham Palace and the Houses of Parliament. Pupils told me about a forthcoming visit to Duxford Air Museum and it was notable that they linked this very explicitly to their learning about the second world war. Safeguarding is effective. You and the deputy headteacher have ensured that all safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose and records are detailed and of high quality. The school’s single central record of employment checks is well maintained and meets statutory requirements. As the designated safeguarding leads, you and the deputy headteacher have been appropriately trained to carry out the role effectively. You have a thorough knowledge and understanding of child protection procedures and you are deeply committed to protecting the pupils in your care. You keep up to date with statutory guidance and have updated the school’s safeguarding policy to reflect recent changes to the statutory guidance, ‘Keeping children safe in education’. Pupils feel very safe at school. They have enormous confidence in staff and know that they will be listened to if they are concerned about anything, whether in school or out. One pupil spoke for many when she said, ‘you can always go to them if you’re upset.’ Pupils said that staff ‘really listen to you’ and are ‘kind and helpful’. This open and supportive culture provides a very safe place for pupils to be. Every parent who responded to Parent View (Ofsted’s online questionnaire) said that they feel that their child is safe and happy at school. Inspection findings Pupils achieve well at Newton Community Primary School. Overall attainment at the end of key stage 1 was well above the national average for the five years to 2015. Overall attainment was also above the national average at the end of key stage 2 during the same period, and well above the national average in 2015. Pupils’ progress was similar to the national average in 2014 and 2015. The proportion of Year 6 pupils who reached the expected level in reading, writing and mathematics combined in 2016 was above the national average. A particularly high proportion achieved the expected level in mathematics and almost half of pupils reached the higher standard in reading. The progress that pupils made between the end of key stage 1 and the end of key stage 2 was above average in reading this year, continuing the trend of above-average rates of progress in the subject. Progress in mathematics was also above average this year, demonstrating a continued improvement over the last three years.
