School Description

The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website. The school complies with Department for Education guidance on what academies should publish on its website. University of Chester CE Academy is a smaller-than-average secondary comprehensive school. The number of pupils supported by the pupil premium funding is well above average. The proportions of pupils from minority ethnic groups and of pupils for whom English is Inspection report: University of Chester CE Academy, 25–26 April 2017 Page 10 of 13 not their first language are much lower than national averages. The proportion of pupils who receive support for special educational needs and/or disabilities is larger than the national figure. The proportion of pupils who have a statement of special educational needs or an education, health and care plan is higher than average. In 2016, the school was identified as a coasting school because of pupils’ weak progress over the last three years. For a small number of pupils, the school uses alternative provision at West Cheshire College and Progress Sport. In addition, two pupils work from home and are enrolled with NASI Online Education. The school is part of the University of Chester Academies Trust (UCAT). The school has been supported by Cheshire Vale Teaching School Alliance, a number of specialist leaders in education and by collaborative activity across UCAT. The school received designated funding from Cheshire West and Cheshire Local Authority to support the link with Cheshire Vale Teaching School Alliance and with other local schools. Five days before the inspection, one of the school’s vice-principals took up post as interim principal.

The concentration of pupils shows likelihood of admission based on distance criteria

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.
