School Description

Pupils enjoy school life at Watercliffe Meadow. This is a friendly and inclusive school. Everyone receives a warm welcome, including visitors. Staff know and understand the needs of pupils extremely well. Relationships between pupils and adults are strong. Leaders have high expectations for all pupils and want them to achieve their very best. Pupils gain good knowledge and skills across a wide range of subjects. They talk with confidence and excitement about what they have learned and what they can remember. The school’s motto of ‘The world is ours!’ permeates every aspect of school life. Pupils feel valued and listened to. They enjoy ‘circle time’ and ‘working party circles’, where they can share their views. They take up leadership responsibilities with enthusiasm. Leaders expect pupils to behave well and they do. Pupils understand and love ‘golden time’, when they can do something they enjoy. They say it encourages them to behave and work hard. Pupils told us that bullying is uncommon. They appreciate the ‘magic room’, where they can go to get extra support. Parents and carers are overwhelmingly positive about the school. One parent’s comment echoed many others, when they said, ‘This is an amazing school; it has helped my child not just academically but socially and emotionally.’ What does the school do well and what does it need to do better? Leaders and staff are passionate and determined about providing the best quality of education for all pupils, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). As a result, pupils are well prepared for the next steps in their education. Leaders have thought carefully about the curriculum. They have designed a creative topic-based curriculum that inspires pupils’ curiosity. Different subjects are interconnected through themes linked to a ‘big question’. This allows pupils to gain lots of knowledge and to develop a wide range of skills. In the early years, children are safe and happy. There are clear routines which allow children to develop their independence. Teachers provide children with many interesting activities. They make sure that children get off to a good start in developing their reading and mathematical skills. During our visit, children were excitedly exploring shapes. They used complex vocabulary such as ‘sphere’. Children are interested and love learning here.

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.
