School Description

The school is larger than the average-sized primary school. Most pupils are White British. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds is below average, as is the proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is above average. The proportion of pupils supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is also above average. A below-average proportion of pupils are eligible for the pupil premium. This is extra funding from the government for pupils in local authority care and those known to be eligible for free school meals. The school meets the government’s current floor standards for primary schools, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress. The acting headteacher and acting deputy headteacher have been in post since September 2013. A new headteacher has been appointed to start in April 2014.

How have we plotted this map?

For this school, priority is given to children who live nearest to the school, measured by a straight line. No predefined catchment area exists but a circular priority area is created, the radius of which is the distance between the school and the home of the last child taking up a place in the previous year. The size of the cut-off distance circle will change annually and is different to a catchment area.

School Guide provides this data as a guide to future admissions only. We recommend parents always check important catchment information with the relevant local authority and consider the list of higher priorities (SEN, siblings, etc.) before applying to a school.

See Pupil heat maps and catchment FAQs for more information on the way geographical areas are used to allocate places when a school is oversubscribed.

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 last School Census (released annually in July).

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 maps. Catchment 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.
