School Description

The Sussex Learning Trust name evolved from the original trust which took the school’s name when it became an academy in 2011. It was joined by a local primary school. The trust now wishes to expand and increase its partnership and work with other schools. Plans to achieve this are underway. The headteacher of the school is also the chief executive of the trust and is a national leader of education. His expertise is shared between Warden Park and the primary school and he will also contribute to the development of schools joining the trust in the future. The school is much larger than the average secondary school. The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities is below average. The SSC provides for 18 pupils assessed as having severe specific learning difficulties, speech and language needs and additional learning needs. The centre is funded by the local authority. Inspection report: Warden Park School, 19–20 January 2017 Page 9 of 12 Pupils registered in the SSC are fully integrated into school life, learning and participating in mainstream lessons with support. They also receive additional support from the school’s SCC specialist staff, to help them to be successful. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils is well below average. Around 40 pupils in Year 7 are eligible for catch-up funding (for those who did not attain the nationally expected standards in reading, writing or mathematics at the end of primary school). Close to nine out of 10 pupils are White British with very small numbers of pupils from several minority ethnic groups. A below-average proportion of pupils speak English as an additional language. Off-site training is made available for around 10 pupils in Years 10 and 11 to extend their learning experience. The school offers the following training at: – Brinsbury Agricultural College, which provides full-time and day ‘fresh start’ courses, sometimes blended with work experience – West Sussex Alternative Provision College, which provides full-time attendance but most pupils follow ‘blended learning’ courses where they study at home and a tutor visits them – Plumpton College, where pupils attend day courses on agriculture. 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. In 2016, the school met the government’s floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress.

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 last School Census (released annually in July).

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 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 last 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.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.
