School Description

Gunton Primary Academy is a larger than average-sized primary school and converted to an academy in October 2015. The school is part of REAch2 Academy Trust, which is the main governing body with legal and strategic responsibilities for all REAch2 schools. The local governing body focuses on the day-to-day responsibilities. The school does not have provision for two-year-olds. The proportion of pupils supported by pupil premium funding is average. The vast majority of pupils are White British. The proportion of pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities is below average. In 2017, the school met 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. A small number of pupils access alternative provision at First Base pupil referral unit and at The Landing, at The Attic pupil referral unit. Inspection report: Gunton Primary Academy, 3–4 July 2018 Page 8 of 10 Information about this inspection The inspection team observed teaching and learning across all year groups. Discussions were held with the headteacher, deputy headteacher, the school business manager, other leaders, the regional director of the academy trust and a group of four governors, including the chair of governors. Inspectors assessed the quality of pupils’ work by scrutinising a range of written work in subjects across the curriculum. They also heard pupils read. Inspectors met with several groups of pupils during the inspection to discuss various aspects of the school. The inspection team scrutinised a range of documentation, including the school’s selfevaluation, information on pupils’ achievement, and records of the school’s safeguarding arrangements and of the governing body’s work. Inspectors spoke to parents in the playground at the start of the inspection. Account was also taken of the 118 responses to Ofsted’s online questionnaire, Parent View, and of the 59 parents who left comments on the Parent View free-text service. The lead inspector also took account of one letter written directly to him by a parent.

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.
