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

Widcombe Infant School is a happy, safe place to learn. Pupils are at the centre of everything the school does. Leaders are ambitious for all pupils. Parents are overwhelmingly positive about the care and guidance provided for their children. One parent stated, ‘This is a lovely, supportive school that nurtures and takes a strong interest in every child.’ Pupils love coming to school. This is reflected in their high attendance. Pupils appreciate the wide range of opportunities offered to them. This makes a strong contribution to their outstanding personal development. Highly effective pastoral support ensures all pupils are ready to learn. Staff have high expectations of pupils’ behaviour. Pupils behave well in lessons and during social times. Low-level disruption is rare. Pupils are respectful and polite to one another. They understand what bullying is. Pupils say that bullying happens very occasionally. They are confident that when it does happen, adults deal with it well. The school’s ethos is fully inclusive. This supports everyone learning and working in this diverse community. Staff know and understand the pupils very well. Highly effective relationships and positive interactions permeate the daily life of the school.
