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 Olive School, Bolton opened as part of the government’s free schools programme. It opened in a temporary building in September 2016 and continues to operate from that site. It is part of Star Academies, a large national multi-academy trust. It is a two-form entry school and, when it opened, admitted pupils into Reception and Year 1. It currently has pupils from Reception to Year 3. The school is oversubscribed for places to start in the next academic year when the oldest pupils will be in Year 4. The Olive School, Bolton is designated as a Muslim faith school. The admission arrangements allow pupils of all faiths and none to attend. The school is expecting to be inspected under section 48 imminently. The purpose of this inspection will be to evaluate the distinctiveness and effectiveness of the school’s religious character. The trust and school were established to extend the educational opportunities of young people in areas that have been characterised by deprivation and underachievement. The school serves a socio-economically disadvantaged community which includes many Inspection report: The Olive School, Bolton, 10–11 July 2019 Page 9 of 12 families for whom English is an additional language and new arrivals to the country. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils is in line with that seen nationally. This, however, does not reflect the high levels of deprivation that exist within the school’s catchment area. About two thirds of pupils speak English as an additional language. This is significantly above the national average. The proportion of pupils with SEND is above the national average. The school operates a breakfast club.
