School Description

The school is bigger than average, serves pupils from the local area, but around half come from further afield. The Early Years Foundation Stage consists of two Reception classes and children join from up to 16 different pre-school settings. The majority of pupils are White British, but around 40% of pupils are from other ethnic heritages, which is an above average proportion and an increase since the previous inspection. An above average proportion is at an early stage of learning to speak English, which is also higher than at the time of the previous inspection. The 20% proportion of pupils eligible for additional funding, called the pupil premium, is lower than is normally found. The proportions of pupils with special educational needs supported by school action, school action plus, and those with statements of special educational needs, are all around average. One pupil is taught in alternative provision (other schools or units). The school meets the government’s floor standards which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress. The school has a number of awards reflecting its commitment to improving basic skills, promoting healthy living and environmental awareness.

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 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 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.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.

“Happy Parent”
AUTHOR:
"> My child loves Willen, he can't wait to go to school in the morning and always comes back excited about the things he's learned. He's well cared for and has made lots of friends. I'd certainly recommend Willen to other families. Happy children who love learning and make excellent progress, what more could a parent want?
