School Description

Hockwold Primary School and Methwold High School formally amalgamated in September 2011 and became an all-through academy in January 2013. The school is based on two separate sites which are six miles apart. The school is sponsored by the Academy Transformation Trust. The sixth form is small and most students enter from key stage 4 at the school. An assistant principal was given responsibility for the sixth form in September 2014. Both the primary and the secondary phases are smaller than average-sized schools of these types. The school serves the largest rural catchment in Norfolk. The very large majority of pupils are of White British heritage. A small number of sixth-form students are educated away from the school in the ‘Futsal’ scheme run by Norwich City Football Club. The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities and the proportion supported through a statement of special educational needs or the new education, health and care plan is above average. However, because of the relatively small size of the school, the actual numbers are small. The proportion of pupils for whom the school receives the pupil premium is below the national average. This is additional government funding for disadvantaged pupils, who are known to be eligible for free school meals or who are in the care of the local authority. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress at Year 6 and Year 11. National minimum standards were met in the sixth form. Inspection report: Iceni Academy, 6–7 July 2016 Page 8 of 11 Primary classes are taught in mixed-age year groups. Children join the Reception class in the September following their fourth birthday and attend full time. The principal has been in post since September 2013. The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website.

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.
