School Description

The school opened on 1 September 2016. It is a Muslim designated faith school and is part of Star Academies. The trust is run by a board of trustees which has delegated responsibility to the local governing body. The school is located on a temporary site in inner Birmingham on the ground floor of a two-storey local authority library building, with further classrooms housed on the site. Currently, the school has Reception, Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3 classes and is growing year on year until it has the full primary age range. Almost all of the pupils are from minority ethnic groups. About two thirds are pupils of Pakistani heritage. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is well above average. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils is slightly above average. The proportion of pupils with SEND is above average. The school runs a breakfast club. Inspection report: The Olive School, Birmingham, 25–26 June 2019 Page 10 of 12 Information about this inspection Inspectors visited all classes to gather a wide view of evidence about what it is like to be a pupil at this school. Most visits were carried out jointly with one of a range of senior leaders. While in class, inspectors reviewed work in pupils’ books and on display, and looked at a range of information that the school has on pupils’ progress. As well as speaking informally with staff and pupils during the day, inspectors met with groups of pupils, teachers, leaders, governors and trustees. Inspectors spoke to parents at the start of the school day and heard pupils read. Inspectors spoke to senior leaders and pupils about learning. They looked at a range of documentation regarding safeguarding, SEND provision and pupils’ behaviour. Inspectors took account of the 81 responses to Ofsted’s online survey, Parent View. They also considered confidential responses sent by parents.

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.
