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, the staff and governors have an accurate view of the quality of education and have ensured that the school has continued to improve. Your strong and caring leadership, ably supported by the proactive governing body and dynamic senior leadership team, has created a culture of high expectations and aspirations for the pupils and school community. You have ensured that leadership is distributed and have supported the development of leaders well. Leadership is highly effective and this has enabled teachers and support staff to ensure that pupils get an excellent start to their education. Your school values of „five-star learning for all, with family at the heart of everything we do‟ is evident across the whole school. Leaders and staff know the families and community very well and work closely with parents to support pupils‟ learning, development and well-being. Parents are extremely happy with the school. All parents who were spoken to during the inspection and those who completed Ofsted‟s online survey, Parent View, would recommend the school to other parents. One parent commented: „The teachers and support staff are second to none, dedicated and care deeply about their pupils. The head teacher is a gift: so friendly, warm and generous with her time and clearly values every child.‟ Another parent said: „I am thrilled to find the extra-curricular activities and “extras” they organise to enhance my child‟s education such as the living eggs to teach the children about chickens and the excursions they organise. It all adds up to a happy learning environment. I am very happy I chose Whitehall as the school for my daughter to start her educational journey.‟ There is good staff morale and all staff feel their work is valued. Staff who completed the staff survey say they enjoy working at the school. As a result, there is a strong team ethos and staff want to do their best for the pupils. Pupils are also very proud of their school and enjoy lessons. At a meeting with pupils held during the inspection all pupils were extremely positive about their school. One pupil, when referring to the school‟s five-star value system, commented, „We are a five-star school, but I‟d give it six stars as it‟s so good.‟ Pupils are given a range of responsibilities and there is an active range of groups such as the school council, eco-warriors and exercise ambassadors which ensure that their voice is strong across the school. Pupils work hard in lessons and collaborate well, trying their best in their work. They have excellent attitudes to learning, standards of behaviour are high and the conduct of pupils during the inspection was exemplary. There was a slight dip in results at the end of key stage 1 for two consecutive years following the previous inspection, but at the end of 2018 results were much improved. Teaching has improved during the last two years and is continuing to develop through regular monitoring and staff training. As a result, current pupils are making good progress in reading, writing and mathematics. Safeguarding is effective. There is a strong culture of safeguarding at the school. There are well organised systems and procedures in place to ensure that any concerns about a child‟s welfare are recorded swiftly and followed up rigorously by the designated safeguarding leaders in school. Safeguarding records are of a high quality and the recent introduction of an online recording system has further improved information sharing. School leaders work closely with a range of external agencies to ensure that pupils and families are supported effectively when needed. The recently appointed learning mentor is ensuring that more parents are able to access support from other agencies. Staff and governors receive regular training to update their awareness of safeguarding issues and procedures. Governors regularly monitor safeguarding arrangements and check the effectiveness of policies and procedures. Pupils feel safe in school and know that they can talk to an adult if they have any concerns. They are knowledgeable about how to stay safe online and the potential dangers of using the internet. All parents who responded to the Parent View survey agreed that their children feel safe at school. Inspection findings My first key line of enquiry was to look at how effective the school has been in improving the quality of pupils‟ writing. This is because the proportion of pupils achieving the expected standard in writing has been below the national average for the last three years.
