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. Following your appointment as headteacher in September 2015, you very quickly identified key areas to ensure that the school continues to improve. These included improving outcomes in mathematics at the end of key stage 2 and ensuring that a higher proportion of pupils achieve greater depth in writing at the end of this key stage. The leadership capacity of the school has increased through a new leadership structure. Leaders, staff and governors work together effectively as a team. Safeguarding systems and procedures have been strengthened and leaders have revised the curriculum and implemented new approaches to assessment, marking and feedback. You are highly appreciative of the valuable support you received from the local authority and the Brentwood Collaborative Partnership following your appointment as headteacher. Governors have strengthened their roles since your appointment, having also benefited from local authority support. They hold the school to account for all aspects of performance, including the spending of additional funding for disadvantaged pupils and those who have special educational needs and/or disabilities. As a result, attainment and progress across the school are rising.

“Good School”

unlock
"> Good school, my daughter comments that she likes all the teachers and they all seem nice. The lessons seem well structured and executed. Being a typical primary school, mostly female teachers, they never seem to approach me (a male) for a chat. When my wife does the pick up or drop off she says she gets plenty of feedback. The school is being expanded to make room for more kids, hopefully the standards don’t fall as they tend to in densely populated schools. Time will tell.
“Boys lives matter too”

"> Good school but a typical primary school these days, kids teaching kids. Being a DAD I get zero feedback at the school gate, not even a hello. While my wife, who wants to drop and run, gets pulled for a long winded chat. Seems very girl orientated in the classroom too. My daughter comes home saying the girls won again, girl power, my teachers say we’re better than the boys etc.. I am happy that she is being supported, but that said, I’m not looking forward sending my son there next year. But as my daughter is already there, what choice do I have. I hope any gender discrimination and equality issues are addressed by then.
