School Description

The school is an average-sized community secondary school and has a sixth form. The level of pupil mobility is high, with an increasing number of pupils being admitted after the normal school starting date, many of whom speak little or no English. Less than one half of pupils are from White British backgrounds. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds is above average. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is also above average. The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs or disability is above average. The proportion of pupils who are eligible for support through the pupil premium is above the national average. The pupil premium is extra funding given to schools to support pupils who are eligible for free school meals, or who are looked after by the local authority. The school is supported through partnership with a local Foundation Trust board involving Coventry City Council, the University of Coventry, NHS Trust, Ricoh Arena, Henley College and CREATE. A number of pupils attend placements at an alternative provision at Learnfit, Henley College, Brakes, Coombe Abbey, Moor Farm, CWT (Coventry Warwickshire Training) and City College. The school’s sixth form provides a range of academic and some vocational courses, all of which are taught on-site or at the City Consortium. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress. The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website. Inspection report: Foxford School and Community Arts College, 17–18 May 2016 7 of 10 Inspection report: Foxford School and Community Arts College, 17–18 May 2016 8 of 10 Information about this inspection Inspectors observed teaching across a range of lessons in order to evaluate the quality of teaching, learning and assessment. Many of these lessons were conducted jointly with senior leaders. Pupils’ work was sampled in lessons and through formal reviews of work in various subjects at key stage 3, key stage 4 and the sixth form. Inspectors reviewed a range of documents, including the school’s own information on the progress of current pupils, planning and monitoring documentation, records relating to behaviour and attendance and documents relating to keeping pupils safe. Meetings were held with pupils across Years 7 to 11 and with learners in the sixth form, as well as contact at breaktime and lunchtime. An inspector also met with members of the governing body and the school’s improvement partner. Discussions took place with senior leaders, subject leaders and staff responsible for the pastoral care and guidance of pupils. Inspectors listened to pupils reading as part of their lessons and an inspector listened particularly to pupils reading in Years 7 and 8. Inspectors evaluated the very small number of parental responses to the Ofsted online questionnaire, Parent View, and the free-text facility. Inspectors also evaluated the responses of parents to the school’s own questionnaires completed during year group review meetings. They took account of the views of pupils and members of the school’s staff through informal conversations.

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.
