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 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. Leaders and governors have effectively managed the change from being an infant school to becoming a primary school. Throughout this period of expansion, the school has focused on improving outcomes for pupils. A good example of this is the effective work of the governing body to ensure that the right staff were appointed to guide the growth of the school. The school gives a well-rounded education that ensures pupils thrive. The broad range of interesting activities enables all-round development for pupils. The support for pupils’ well-being is very strong. This is valued and appreciated by pupils and parents alike. Parents praise the caring nature of the school and many comment on how their child has benefited from the school’s support. Pupils enjoy school and are making good progress from their starting points. You are rightly proud of the strength in your leadership team. Together, you have maintained the good areas identified by the last inspection. You have also taken effective action to further improve the quality of teaching. The leadership team works well together to ensure that teaching remains good. Leaders have a deep understanding of the current strengths and weaknesses in teaching. This knowledge is based on thorough analysis of a good range of information. It is now important that your plans for improvement are closely monitored by your governors. This should ensure that everyone stays focused and that your plans deliver the better outcomes for pupils they promise. You are correct to focus on the teaching of mathematics and the progress of the most able pupils. Safeguarding is effective. There is a strong culture of safeguarding in the school and pupils feel safe. Almost all parents say that their children are safe and happy at school. The majority of parents are full of praise for the school, summed up by one parent who said that this is the best school in the area. Staff are extremely caring and all see the safety and well-being of pupils as priorities. Systems and policies for safeguarding are clear and well managed. The leadership team has ensured that all safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose and records are detailed and of high quality. The training and induction of staff are very thorough. As a result, staff are knowledgeable and up to date. A good example of this thorough approach is the class safeguarding file recently introduced for staff. Leaders are aware of local issues and ensure that these inform the school’s work to keep pupils safe. Governors have a good understanding of safeguarding and carry out a number of activities to monitor the effectiveness of procedures in the school. The overwhelming majority of pupils and parents would recommend the school to a friend. They value the care and support provided by staff. A small number of parents felt that the school did not deal effectively with poor behaviour and bullying. Staff report that poor behaviour is tackled swiftly and appropriately. Pupils feel safe in the school and say that staff look after them well. They said that teachers are good at dealing with bad behaviour. Pupils have confidence in the staff to deal with any issues or concerns that they may have. The curriculum is used well to keep pupils safe. As a result, pupils have a good understanding of how to keep themselves safe. Parents are kept well informed about this work. Many parents said they value the information they receive about keeping children safe on the internet. Inspection findings At the start of the inspection, we agreed to look in particular at the following aspects of the school’s work: – the effectiveness of safeguarding arrangements – how well leaders have continued to improve the quality of teaching – how effectively leaders are ensuring that disadvantaged pupils do as well as other pupils in the school – how thoroughly governors ensure that the school fulfils its statutory duties.
