School Description

The school is a smaller than average primary school situated in Hartlepool in the north east of England. The school is a Church of England voluntary aided school in the Diocese of Durham. The school’s previous section 48 inspection was on 11 December 2017. The vast majority of pupils are White British. There are a small number of pupils who speak English as an additional language. The proportion of pupils in receipt of free school meals is significantly higher than the national average. The school serves a higher-than-average proportion of pupils who require additional support for SEND. The proportion of pupils joining or leaving the school is higher than that found nationally. The school uses one alternative provider, Daisy Chain. Inspection report: Ward Jackson Church of England VA Primary School, 2–3 April 2019 Page 9 of 11 Information about this inspection The inspector observed learning in all classes and year groups. Most of these observations were completed alongside the headteacher. During the observations, the inspector spoke to pupils about their learning and experiences of school and examined work in their books. The inspector observed pupils at break and lunchtime. The inspector also spoke to different groups of pupils about their learning. He also listened to a group of pupils read. The inspector met with senior and middle leaders, a group of governors, a representative from the local authority and some staff. A telephone conversation took place with another member of the local authority. A further telephone call took place with the education coordinator of the alternative provision used by the school. The inspector scrutinised and evaluated a wide sample of pupils’ work from each year group to ascertain current pupils’ learning and progress in a range of subjects. The inspector reviewed a wide range of school documentation, including the school’s self-evaluation document, development plan, current pupils’ assessment information, attendance and behaviour records, documents associated with safeguarding and child protection and provision for SEND. The inspector examined the 13 responses to Parent View and the seven free-text responses. In addition, the inspector considered the 51 pupil responses and 19 staff responses to their online questionnaires.

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.
