School Description

The Olive School opened as a three-form entry, Muslim faith-based primary school in September 2013. It was set up in response to demand from the local community. It is part of the Tauheedul Education Trust (TET) family of schools. TET’s vision involves the development of a national model for progressive, mainstream and positive Muslim free schools that provide pupils with outstanding academic foundations to help them become exemplary members of their community. The school follows the National Curriculum, which is extended through an enrichment programme. All the teaching staff in the school are qualified teachers. The timing of the school day enables a flexible start in the morning and an early finish on a Fridays to allow for prayers. Currently, the school has four year groups: Reception, Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3 with a total of 330 pupils. The school is oversubscribed: for September 2015; there were 240 applications for 90 places. All pupils are from minority ethnic backgrounds and over half of them speak English as an additional language; these are well above the proportions seen nationally. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium is small and well below the national picture. This is in stark contrast to the school’s indicator of deprivation which places it within the 40% of areas of highest deprivation in the country. The pupil premium is additional funding the school receives for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals or who are in local authority care. The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs is below average. This was the first full inspection of the school by Ofsted.

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.
