School Description

This village school is much smaller than the average-sized primary school. The number of pupils in each year group varies considerably. Pupils are taught in three mixedage classes. Most of the pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium (additional funding allocated for certain groups such as pupils in the care of the local authority or known to be eligible for free school meals) is below average. The proportion of pupils supported through school action, at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is below average. Pupils transfer to two local middle schools at the end of Year 4. The school runs a breakfast and after-school club.

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.

BY PARENTS, FOR PARENTS

“Concerned parent”
AUTHOR:
"> Such a shame this once lovely village school as been let down by the new poor management and, in my opinion, the children have just been made into numbers rather than individuals. The school has gone from a vibrant caring environment to staff coming and going and the children not having a stable environment to grow in. My youngest child really struggled here, whereas my eldest thrived under well experience teachers. There has been a massive turnover in staff over the last few years which I feel has really impacted the children. There has to be the question of why there is such a big staff turnover in a small village school! I completely agree with the other review and after all these changes Ofsted should be inspecting soon.

"> ...but the good teachers have left and the children are suffering due to poor management. I am a parent of a child in Totternhoe Academy. This was a great school; I picked it out for my first child with recommendations from other local parents. I am sorry to say the lovely village school is not even close to what it once was. After a new head teacher and the academy change, it lost its charm and with it the care and support for the children. Don't get me wrong: there are still teachers who go the extra mile but the majority of staff seem to have lost the drive they once had in my opinion. The high staff turnover disrupts the learning and development of the children. I have volunteered in and around the school in the past but this stopped when the head teacher started to demand too much from parents without investment from the school. I have noticed a lack of resources: the school is scruffy with broken windows, fencing and lighting. It is such a shame the school has become like this in such a short time. I will wait to see the new Ofsted rating but I will be finding an alternative school for my next child.
