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 leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the previous inspection. You have continued to provide effective leadership to the school and further strengthened the work of senior leaders. Your unflinching commitment to the pupils and the wider community has resulted in your school having inclusivity at the very heart of all it does. Pupils and staff demonstrate the school values of kindness, respect, determination, teamwork and excellence in their day-to-day work. You and your leaders have a deep and carefully formed understanding of the needs of the school community. Actions to support pupils and families are effective in enabling pupils to achieve well and are valued by parents. One parent summed up the views of many when they said, ‘I feel this school is doing a great job. It is a caring, supportive and positive environment for my children.’ Pupils are proud of their school. They understand their role in making the school the harmonious learning community that it is. They behave well in lessons and are curious and interested in what they learn. The strong relationships between pupils and adults are a particular strength of your school. Pupils are keen to share their achievements with adults and they receive genuine and warm praise when they do so. This results in pupils who are confident to tackle new learning and try new experiences. Pupils in the early years were observed demonstrating effective teamwork and cooperation when they were constructing their own Great Wall of China using resources within the classroom. Pupils within the specialist provision are very much part of the school. They transition smoothly between their own classroom and other classes within the school because of the help available to them from the well-trained and skilful staff who support them. The local governing body and trustees of the multi-academy trust share your ambition for the school. They have an accurate understanding of the school’s effectiveness and provide useful challenge and support through their well-focused visits. Visits from the trust regional director have been particularly helpful in identifying strengths and areas to develop in teaching. You have responded effectively to the areas for improvement at the previous inspection. You have been innovative in your approaches to encouraging pupils’ better attendance. Two very popular daily breakfast clubs have supported improved attendance, particularly for pupils who require additional nurture. These approaches have resulted in a reduction in the number of pupils who are persistently absent. Pupils’ attainment has continued to improve. Pupils make particularly strong progress in reading as a result of the effective actions that you have taken to strengthen teaching. Safeguarding is effective. The school has a strong culture of safeguarding, which reaches into the wider community. The shared appointments of staff with responsibility for safeguarding have resulted in strong links with the local secondary school. These links support pupils and families well, particularly when pupils move from the primary to secondary school. Pupils say that they feel safe in school and this is also the view of parents and carers. The curriculum is designed to ensure that pupils know how to stay safe in a range of situations. Pupils can explain how to stay safe when they are online and are aware of risks that they could encounter. Pupils say that adults respond quickly and helpfully to any concerns that they raise. Leaders ensure that training is effective and results in continuous improvement to safeguarding procedures within the school. Staff are able to describe the impact of training on their work. All staff are vigilant and promptly report any concerns that arise. Effective action is taken to ensure that concerns are addressed in a timely way, including when working with external agencies. The local governing body provides effective oversight of the work of the school to keep pupils safe, including ensuring that recruitment checks are carried out and that information is recorded accurately. Inspection findings Leaders accurately evaluate the quality of teaching. They have a deep understanding of the strengths and areas for the development of staff and take decisive action where weaknesses are identified. Teachers benefit from expert guidance and support from leaders within the school and the trust. Support is carefully designed to meet the needs of teachers. This has resulted in the quality of the majority of teaching within the school being effective in promoting pupils’ learning. Teachers typically display good subject knowledge, effective use of assessment and the ability to design tasks in English and mathematics that allow pupils to achieve well.
