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 last inspection. Since you became the headteacher in 2017, your vision and ambition have created an aspirational learning environment with high expectations of pupils and staff. You work effectively to ensure that pupils have a wide range of learning experiences that increase pupils’ knowledge and their enjoyment in learning. The school is well organised with a good range of resources in classrooms and outdoors. Senior and middle leaders work together effectively as a team and demonstrate a strong capacity for improvement. Staff and governors are committed to the school’s vision to enable pupils to do their best, promote their pride in learning and challenge the community to succeed. The governing body has recruited staff effectively. It holds leaders to account for proposed spending well. The school works actively with parents and the wider community to promote aspirations for what pupils can achieve in their future working lives. Dedicated staff work closely with parents to promote pupils’ well-being. Parents enjoy the regular school drama productions. The last inspection report asked you to improve teaching so that pupils made more rapid progress. Your improvements to the teaching of reading and mathematics have resulted in good progress by pupils, including by disadvantaged pupils. In 2018, attainment at the end of key stage 2 was above the national average in reading and mathematics, as measured by the overall scaled score. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils who reached the expected standard, or above, in reading, writing and mathematics was the same as all pupils nationally. The progress of disadvantaged pupils in reading was better than other pupils nationally for the last two years. In 2018, in mathematics, disadvantaged pupils made better progress than disadvantaged pupils nationally and the most able pupils made strong progress. Pupils have not made as much progress in writing. In 2018, attainment was lower than in reading and mathematics at both key stages 1 and 2. You have changed your approach to the teaching of writing and this has begun to increase pupils’ skills and independence in drafting and revising their writing. New class texts, and the effective use of examples to show pupils how to write, are enabling pupils to extend their vocabulary and develop their use of grammar. Improving outcomes in writing is rightly a school priority. The last inspection report also asked the school to improve attendance. Staff promote good attendance effectively through weekly raffles, prize draws and rewards for high attendance. Attendance targets are high profile in assemblies and on the school website. Staff regularly inform pupils about their individual attendance. Careful checking of pupils’ attendance and a sharp focus on those who do not attend so well has led to improved attendance in the current year, particularly in Reception. The school uses a wide range of visits, meetings and letters to parents to ensure that they encourage their children to attend school as regularly as possible. Safeguarding is effective. The leadership team has ensured that all safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose. Recruitment checks meet requirements. The safeguarding policy and staff training are up-to-date. Staff are alert to safeguarding concerns that arise. When staff report concerns, safeguarding leaders consider them promptly. The systematic recording of concerns ensures that safeguarding leaders have a clear overview of emerging issues and of individual cases. Key staff have secure and quick access to information. Comprehensive case files methodically record events and review actions taken. Staff work effectively with parents to explore concerns and overcome difficulties. Strong relationships with local agencies enable the school to work effectively to meet the needs of pupils and their families. The safeguarding link governor meets regularly with you to review safeguarding issues and the action taken. The positive school culture, well-organised systems and caring ethos promote the safety of pupils effectively.
