School Description

The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website. The school complies with Department for Education guidance on what academies should publish. The principal of the school, formerly the vice-principal, was appointed in April 2017. The former principal is now the executive headteacher of this school and two other schools in the trust. The school makes use of The Blackpool Alternative School for its alternative provision arrangements. The trust brokers a range of support within its schools, including, in this school, support in science. The government’s current floor standards were met in 2016 at both key stages 2 and 4. The school is not deemed to be coasting. Inspection report: Unity Academy Blackpool, 3–4 October 2017 Page 9 of 11 Information about this inspection Inspectors met with school leaders, staff, governors and representatives of the trust to discuss: – the progress made since the previous inspection – the progress made by children and pupils – the quality of teaching – how well children and pupils behave and how their personal development is promoted – how well a culture of safeguarding is promoted – the professional development and performance management of staff – leaders’ view of the effectiveness of the school and priorities for the future. Inspectors met with 12 pupils representing Years 1 to 3, 13 representing Years 4 to 6, 10 representing Years 7 and 8, and 12 representing Years 9 to 11. Discussions focused on pupils’ view of the school, how good behaviour is, how safe they feel, and how well they are prepared for their next steps. Inspectors visited a wide range of classes and subjects, visiting each year group to observe learning and look at work in pupils’ books. At least half of these visits were conducted jointly with school leaders. A small number of pupils read to inspectors. Inspectors took into account views expressed in the online inspection survey. Sixteen parents, 12 Year 11 pupils and 68 staff responded. Three parents spoke with inspectors directly. One parent contacted Ofsted following the inspection. Inspectors scrutinised a range of documentation, including that relating to assessment information, school improvement planning, behaviour records, the school’s own questionnaires to parents, the single central record and other safeguarding procedures and practices.

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.
