School Description

The school complies with DfE guidance on what academies should publish. The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website. The school converted to academy status in April 2014 and is part of the North West Academies Trust. This is the first inspection as an academy. This school is a smaller than the average-size primary school. Most pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils is above average. The proportion of pupils who have special education needs and/or disabilities is above average. The Nursery provides separate morning and afternoon sessions, with some children attending all day. Inspection report: The Oak View Academy, 14–15 March 2017 Page 10 of 13 The school meets the government’s current floor targets, which are the minimum expectations for attainment and progress at the end of Year 6. The trust initially provided a wide range of support to the school but, based on the school’s improvement over time, has adapted a more monitoring role. The school provides a breakfast club and a wide range of after-school and lunchtime clubs. Pupil mobility is high, resulting in many admissions during the course of the school year. At the time of the conversion to academy status, the governing body was completely reconstituted, a new senior leadership team was put in place and many new staff were subsequently appointed. The principal and vice-principal have been in post since September 2014. The early years leader has been in post since April 2016.

How many pupils attending the school live in the area?


The concentration of pupils shows likelihood of admission based on distance criteria

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.
