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. You rightly say that the biggest contribution to the improvements seen in pupils’ achievement has come from consistently good teaching over time. You have built an effective team of teachers and leaders who, with you, have given pupils the balance of stability and challenge needed to raise standards. You saw the impact of this most strongly in 2017 when Year 6 pupils, including those who were disadvantaged, reached standards and made progress well above national levels in reading and mathematics. The school is a highly inclusive community and pupils in the Complex Needs Resource Base are well integrated into school life. They make good progress and most are able to spend part of their time in class with their peers. Pupils value the chance to work and play together. One pupil explained this by describing the school as ‘a respectful and caring place where children are taught how to respond to people’. Pupils demonstrate a real enthusiasm for learning and staff morale is high. Parents recognise the ‘can do’ culture which underpins the school’s successes. As one parent commented, ‘All achievements large and small are celebrated, which makes the children want to keep on trying.’ At the previous inspection you were asked to consider how information from pupils’ assessments was used to identify and prioritise areas of weakness in the school’s effectiveness. You fully analyse information about pupils’ achievements. Governors scrutinise the progress that pupils are making and challenge you and leaders to ensure that resources are well used. You were also asked to share the best practice in school to continue to improve the quality of teaching. High-quality professional development from effective leaders of English and mathematics has strengthened teaching. There are other elements of the curriculum where teaching needs further improvement. You have had plans in place this year to improve writing. Current assessment information and a scrutiny of pupils’ work show that there is still variability in the expectations that teachers have of pupils’ work. Consequently, there are still opportunities to share the best practice more widely. Safeguarding is effective. You ensure that the whole community is regularly trained and updated in matters of safeguarding. You and staff understand the particular challenges which the community may face to support them. Good relationships with parents and carers mean that you are well placed to support in times of difficulty. Staff are vigilant to pupils’ needs and to any small changes in circumstances which mean a pupil could be at risk. They record their concerns conscientiously. Although you expect these to include the follow-up action, this did not appear to be the case. You and governors recognise the need to check routinely that procedures are clear to all staff and chronological records fully maintained. You refer matters of concern to external agencies promptly and continue to follow through with close working to ensure that pupils are safe. Pupils say that others are friendly and that falling out is quickly resolved. They say that trusted adults give them privacy if they have any concerns they need to talk through. Pupils can explain the steps needed to protect their personal information online. They see school as a safe and caring part of their lives. Pupils behave well in class and in the playground. The need for exclusion has been all but eliminated. This is because of high-quality pastoral support and because pupils enjoy school and want to do well. Statistically, the proportion of pupils that have been persistently absent has been higher than national levels. Further scrutiny, however, shows that figures are skewed by the complex medical needs of some pupils. Nonetheless, you robustly support and challenge the small group of parents who keep their children away from school for no good reason. Currently, the level of persistent absence is lower than that of last year. However, there remains a need for continued vigilance to ensure that this improvement continues. The full range of checks are carried out and recorded to show that adults working with pupils are safe to do so. Inspection findings First, I looked to see if pupils are continuing to make consistently strong progress. The 2017 outcomes showed that progress has continued to improve since the previous inspection. You take account of pupils’ starting points when they start with you at the beginning of key stage 2. You and subject leaders discuss pupils’ progress regularly with teachers to ensure that no pupil is slipping behind. If they are, teachers are given advice on how to adapt their teaching and pupils are given extra help through effective interventions.
