School Description

Bishops Tawton is smaller than the average-sized primary school. Almost all of the pupils are White British. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is broadly average. An average proportion of pupils are eligible for the pupil premium. This is additional funding for looked after children and those known to be eligible for free school meals. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics by the end of Year 6. All children in the Reception class attend full time.

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 last School Census (released annually in July).

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 last 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

“Friendly and approachable”
AUTHOR:
"> Bishops is a fantastic school that offers small class sizes with a lot of access to teachers in an intimate learning environment. In my opinion the school and staff are friendly and approachable. We are very happy that our child is here.
“Bishops Tawton a great local school continuously improving”
AUTHOR:
"> The school has consistently had results in the first percentile for key stage 2 maths. Overall results are in the top 3% nationally. The school continues to improve year on year and has many outstanding features. Best of all though is that it is a small school that punches above its weight where the sense of village community and good attitude and comradarie is evident to anyone who walks in to school and meets the confident, friendly children.
