School Description

This is a very large school compared to other primary schools. The majority of pupils are White British, although over a third have a minority ethnic background. The proportion of those who speak English as an additional language is well above average. The proportion of disabled pupils and pupils with special educational needs receiving extra help to address moderate learning difficulties (school action) is well above average. The proportion of pupils receiving additional support for their complex learning needs (school action plus) is below average. Eight pupils have a statement of special educational needs. Over a third of pupils are known to be eligible for free school meals, which is above average. The school receives additional funding known as the ‘pupil premium’ for these pupils, based on the number of pupils in the care of the local authority, from service families and those known be eligible for free school meals. There are currently no pupils from service families in the school. The school meets the current government floor standards, which are the minimum levels expected for pupils’ attainment and progress in English and mathematics. The Early Years Foundation Stage includes two Reception classes with a total of 60 children. The school provides a daily breakfast club and a range of after school activities. The school has two awards: the ArtsMark (Gold) for its work in the expressive arts and the Equality Award for promoting equality of opportunity for all pupils.

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.

BY PARENTS, FOR PARENTS

“Just ok”
AUTHOR:
"> It is a ok school, but good luck getting main parts in plays etc. Year after year, it alway the same children in my experience. It would be nice if they gave other children a chance to shine. Also it the same children getting the three awards they give out at the Year 6 Assembly. It feels, in my opinion, like it's hard for your child to get recognised. The person who deals with SEND is over stretched. I feel the head teacher has been there too long and the school is doing the same thing year after year. The school needs a new head to bring in new ideas. Most of the teacher are good and kind.
