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 and the governing body have worked effectively to ensure that the school is well placed to respond positively to changes in the educational landscape and, more importantly, to the needs of the community. For example, you have established a nursery on the school site, which caters for children from two years old. You have also acted decisively and well to address areas of your school’s work that need to improve. You have recently reshaped your senior team so that there is an even greater focus on monitoring the progress that pupils make. The information that you gather from this monitoring is ensuring that teaching is carefully targeted to suit the needs of your children and pupils. The assistant headteacher leads this aspect of the school’s work well. You work effectively to engage with the wider community and, particularly, parents and families. The overwhelming majority of the parents who responded to the online survey, Parent View, were positive about the school and would recommend it. Those parents with whom I spoke during the inspection were very supportive and enthusiastic about the way the school cares for and challenges their children. They particularly welcomed the daily opportunities they have to visit the school and see their children at work. This is a real strength of your school. You and your governing body are very clear and realistic about what your school needs to do to improve. Your assessment of the school’s strengths and weaknesses is accurate. This is because you and governors are rigorous in your regular monitoring of all aspects of the school’s work. You visit classrooms regularly. You also actively encourage all members of staff to develop their skills and take responsibility for the roles they play in ensuring all children do the best they can. For example, your team of teaching assistants plays a full role in planning pupils’ learning and assessing its impact. It also plays a full part in the school-wide appraisal process and has full access to training opportunities. Your teaching assistants told me that they welcomed this and the opportunities you offer them to take on further responsibilities. Governors know the school well and are well led. You give them regular updates on the work and progress of the school through detailed reporting. Governors supplement this with regular, themed, ‘learning walks’ and regular contacts with parents through, for example, the regular Friday coffee morning which some governors regularly attend. As a result of this detailed and appropriate knowledge and contact, governors are well placed to hold you and your senior team to account for the continued progress of the school. Safeguarding is effective. There is a culture of safeguarding at the school. You, your staff and governing body take these safeguarding responsibilities very seriously. There is regular and effective training for all staff and governors to ensure that they are up to date in their knowledge and understanding. Your links with outside agencies are good. Your records of engagement with these agencies are detailed and show your careful and rigorous approach to this aspect of the school’s work. You make referrals to the local authority promptly and follow them through effectively. You and your leadership team have ensured that all safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose. Records are detailed and of high quality. Inspection findings You have successfully addressed the areas for improvement identified at the previous inspection. Pupils enjoy school and there is a growing culture of independent learning. Pupils respond very positively to the more open-ended problems they encounter in, for example, mathematics. Pupils also have more opportunities to use computers to support their learning. They have access to hand-held devices in their classrooms. You have also set up a computer room in the school since the last inspection. Pupils, including the most able pupils, report that they enjoy using information technology as it helps them in their learning and understanding. The school’s own assessment information and evidence gathered during the inspection show that children are average or slightly below when they arrive in the Reception class. They make good and better progress during their Reception Year and are well prepared for school. The number of children reaching a good level of development is greater than that seen nationally. They make good progress through key stage 1. Phonics screening check scores at the end of Year 1 are strong.
