School Description

The school is smaller than the average-sized secondary school. Since the last inspection, there have been changes in leadership and staffing. The vast majority of the pupils are White British. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups is well below that found nationally. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is very small. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils is average. The proportion of pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities, including those who have an education, health and care plan, is also average. A very small number of pupils receive their education at the Newhall Support Centre. The school does not meet the requirements for the publication of specified information on its website. This includes some information about the school’s curriculum, the year 7 catch-up premium, membership of the governing body, and careers’ leaders contact details. Inspection report: William Allitt School, 11–12 September 2018 Page 9 of 11 Information about this inspection Inspectors observed pupils’ learning in 30 lessons. Some of this learning was observed jointly with senior leaders. Discussions took place with school staff, members of the governing body and a local authority representative. The inspectors met with three groups of pupils and talked informally with pupils. There were no responses to Ofsted’s online pupil survey. An inspector also listened to Year 7 pupils reading. Inspectors observed assembly, tutor time and pupils’ social time. The inspectors took into account the 12 responses from parents to Ofsted’s online survey, Parent View, including nine free-text comments. The inspectors also considered the 33 staff responses to Ofsted’s online staff survey. The inspectors observed the work of the school and looked at a broad range of evidence, including the school’s analysis of its strengths and weaknesses, planning and monitoring documentation, the work in pupils’ books, records relating to attendance and behaviour, and the school’s information on pupils’ current progress and attainment in English, mathematics and a range of other subjects. The school’s child protection and safeguarding procedures were scrutinised. The inspectors reviewed the school’s website to confirm whether it met the requirements on the publication of specified information.

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.
