School Description

This average-sized primary school admits pupils of mainly White British heritage. An above-average proportion of pupils are learning English as an additional language. The proportion of pupils identified with special educational needs and/or disabilities is above average, and a high proportion of these students have a statement of special educational needs. The proportion of those known to be eligible for free school meals is above average. The afternoon Nursery provision is managed by the governing body, who also provide a breakfast and after-school club. There have been significant changes since the last inspection. The school has grown in size with a significant increase in pupil numbers. There have been changes to the leadership team, with middle leaders allocated new subject responsibilities. A ‘Sure Start’ Children’s Centre, on the same site, serves the needs of the wider local community and is inspected separately.

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.

Fawcett Primary School Reviews

“Excellent school, worth a look”
"> One of my children has been right through this school and I have another one there at the moment. We have been very pleased with Fawcett Primary. The building is airy and spacious with high quality art everywhere, and there are impressively extensive fields for the children to play in (they go outdoors a lot at this school.) The Early Years department is particularly lovely, with Nursery and Reception sharing a little garden, sandpits and playhouse. We find the teaching to be excellent, in particular the English and Science teachers. The teaching of reading is outstanding. There are a lot of music and drama events (the school has a proper stage, dressing rooms, theatrical lights, etc) and my eldest particularly enjoyed taking part in a specially commissioned version of Chaucer's 'The Reeve's Tale' (which happens to be set near the school site). The teachers also took the children to see one of the original Chaucer manuscripts at one of the Cambridge colleges, which the children found very exciting. The children seem very well-behaved at the school which, given that about half of the school consists of children whose parents have moved to the UK from abroad to work in the Science parks, is impressive, as the school has to integrate these pupils into the system. Overall, we have had a very good experience and we would not hesitate to recommend Fawcett Primary.
