School Description

Welford is larger than the average-sized primary school. The proportion of pupils who are supported by the pupil premium is above average. Almost all pupils come from minority ethnic backgrounds. The largest ethnic groups are Asian or Asian British. Two thirds of pupils speak English as an additional language. The proportion of pupils with SEND is similar to the national average. The proportion of pupils who have an education, health and care plan is above the national average. The early years is made up of a part-time Nursery provision and two Reception classes. There are two classes for each year group in Years 1 to 6. The school is a designated ‘Fully Accessible Mainstream School’ for pupils with SEND. At the time of this inspection, there were five pupils in school with physical disabilities. There is an increasing proportion of families moving in and out of the school’s locality. Inspection report: Welford Primary School, 9–10 July 2019 Page 9 of 11 Information about this inspection Inspectors observed teaching and learning in every year group. They visited 18 lessons, five of which were observed jointly with senior leaders. Meetings were held with pupils, staff, the chair of the governing body and other governors. Inspectors met frequently with senior leaders. They also met with a range of other staff with leadership responsibility. Inspectors met with a representative from the local authority. Inspectors talked to pupils about their reading. They listened to pupils of different abilities read. Inspectors examined work in pupils’ books from a range of subjects. The school’s child protection and safeguarding procedures were scrutinised. Inspectors looked at a range of documentation written to support school improvement. This included minutes of governors’ meetings, and pupils’ attendance and behaviour information. Inspectors were unable to take account of parental views via Ofsted’s online questionnaire, Parent View. This was because there were insufficient responses. They spoke with parents at the start of the school day. Inspectors looked at a staff survey which was conducted during the inspection. Inspectors reviewed the school’s website.

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.
