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

Being thoughtful and kind to everyone they meet is a noticeable feature of the pupils who attend Watford Field School. Pupils enjoy their learning, like their teachers and always try to do their best. Pupils show a maturity beyond their years when talking about their learning and their feelings. This reflects the time that pupils spend discussing emotions and learning strategies to deal with different situations they may encounter in their daily lives. Pupils say that everyone is friendly. Bullying is rare, but if it does happen, pupils know whom to talk to and are confident it will be dealt with. Pupils enjoy the range of clubs that are on offer, such as choir, dodgeball, archery and ninja warriors. Visits to the farm, the country park, the mosque and the church are all memorable events for the pupils. One pupil said, ‘I wish I could stop growing so I could stay here.’ Another said, ‘It’s fun, it’s friendly, I want to be here forever.’ Parents are complimentary about the school. Parents who have children with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) particularly appreciate the nurturing side of the school.
