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

Pupils enjoy coming to this school. They behave well and enjoy their learning. Pupils develop strong relationships with adults who support them well. This helps pupils to feel safe. Pupils learn about what being a good friend means. Staff act quickly to protect pupils from bullying. Parents and carers said that Victoria Park is a caring school ‘nestled in the heart of the community’. They are very positive about the school and hold the staff in high regard. They appreciate the way that staff always have time for them and their children. Before the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, pupils had access to a wide range of trips and clubs, like street dance and visits to stately homes, to broaden their experiences. Despite the pandemic, leaders and staff have continued to provide such activities and events. For example, events like ‘carols in the cold’ helped to maintain the school’s Christmas celebrations and brought the community together. Most pupils live up to the high expectations that staff have of them. Even so, some pupils do not achieve as well as they should, especially in reading. This is because leaders have not thought carefully enough about the early reading curriculum.
