School Description

The Rookeries Carleton Junior and Infant School: With Hearing Impairment Resource is part of the Pontefract Multi-Academy Trust. It joined the trust in April 2013. Between April and October 2018, a new team of trust leaders, including a new chief executive officer, was appointed. The school is an average-sized primary school. It has a special educational needs resource base for 16 hearing-impaired pupils. The vast majority of pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of pupils with SEND is below average. The proportion of pupils with an education, health and care plan is well above average. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils is just below average. Children attend part time in Nursery and full time in Reception. The school has a breakfast club for its pupils. Inspection report: The Rookeries Carleton Junior and Infant School, 5–6 March 2019 Page 8 of 10 Information about this inspection Inspectors observed a range of teaching and learning in every class in the school. Some observations were joint with senior leaders. Inspectors spoke with pupils, both individually and in groups, to gather their views about the school. Inspectors reviewed pupils’ work in lessons and scrutinised samples of pupils’ work in their books. Inspectors listened to pupils read. The lead inspector held a meeting with the chair of the governing body and three other governors. The lead inspector held a meeting with the trust chief executive officer (CEO) and the executive director of teaching and learning. Inspectors also held meetings with senior leaders and other staff. Inspectors looked at the school’s review of its own performance, the school’s development and improvement plans, several school policies and the minutes of meetings of the governing body. They scrutinised the school’s latest pupil assessment information, together with a range of documentation in relation to safeguarding, behaviour and attendance. Inspectors analysed the 54 responses to Ofsted’s online questionnaire for parents, Parent View. They also analysed the responses to the school’s own pupil and staff questionnaires.

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.
