School Description

The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website. Thornhill Primary school is larger than most primary schools. The percentage of pupils from minority ethnic groups is much higher than the average. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is higher than that seen nationally. The proportion of pupils eligible for pupil premium funding is above average. The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities is above average. The school meets the government’s current floor standards. These set the minimum expectations for pupils’ learning and progress. There is a breakfast club and after-school clubs for pupils. Inspection report: Thornhill Primary School, 21–22 March 2017 Page 9 of 11 Information about this inspection Inspectors observed teaching and learning across all classes within the school. Many of these were with senior leaders. Meetings and discussions were held with the senior leadership team, members of staff, a representative from the local authority, parents and pupils. Inspectors also met with eight members of the governing body, including the chair of governors. Observations were made of pupils’ behaviour at the beginning of the day, at lunchtime, breaktime, in lessons and at before- and after-school clubs. Inspectors examined a wide range of documentation, including that relating to safeguarding, behaviour and attendance, the school’s information on pupils’ outcomes, reports on the quality of teaching, governors’ minutes and the school development plan. Inspectors listened to pupils read and looked at examples of their work in books and on display. Inspectors took account of the 113 responses to Parent View, Ofsted’s online questionnaire, as well as speaking to parents directly. There were no responses from staff or from pupils to questionnaires about the school.

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.
