School Description

In the secondary phase, the school is smaller than the average-sized school. In the primary phase, it is larger than typical primary schools. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils is above the national average. The large majority of pupils are White British. An above average proportion of pupils are from minority ethnic backgrounds. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is slightly below the national average. The proportion of pupils with SEND is slightly above the national average. A similar proportion of pupils have an education, health and care plan to that seen nationally. The school largely uses two alternative providers for a very small number of pupils: Brian Jackson College and Ethos College, in Kirklees. During the inspection, inspectors were aware that a serious incident that occurred at the setting since the previous inspection is under investigation by the appropriate Inspection report: Almondbury Community School, 6–7 December 2018 Page 12 of 15 authorities. While Ofsted does not have the power to investigate incidents of this kind, actions taken by the school in response to the incident were considered alongside the other evidence available at the time of the inspection to inform inspectors’ judgements.

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.
