School Description

This school is much larger than the average-sized primary school. At its last inspection, in November 2012, the school was taken out of special measures and judged as requiring improvement. The large majority of the pupils come from White heritage backgrounds; most speak English as their first language. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is average. A few pupils come from other heritage backgrounds, mainly from Black or Black British backgrounds, mixed heritage groups or Asian or Asian British heritage; a very few come from other ethnic backgrounds. The proportion of pupils who join the school in the Early Years Foundation Stage and continue their education at the school until they leave at the end of Year 6, is below average. Due to family mobility in the area, higher than average numbers of pupils start at, or leave, the school at various times during any school year. The proportion of pupils for whom the school receives the pupil premium (additional government funding for particular groups, including, in this school, those known to be eligible for free school meals) is above average. The proportion of disabled pupils or those who have special educational needs supported at school action is well below average. The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is above average. The school has a specially resourced provision (The Owlets) for pupils with autistic spectrum disorder. There are two ‘sensory’ classes and two for higher functioning pupils. This designated special provision (DSP) caters for up to 28 pupils aged between 4 and 11 years; all such pupils have a statement of special educational need. The school has an increasing proportion of pupils who join the school from abroad who do not have data on their prior attainment from British schools. The school works in partnership with the Kingsthorpe Children’s Centre (URN 21690), which is on the same site as the school. Childcare provision for the school’s pupils is also available on the site through the privately run ‘Oscar’s Out of School Club’. Both of these facilities are inspected separately by Ofsted. The school works in partnership with a group of five other local schools, known as the Northampton Town Learning Partnership (NTLP). The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for the attainment and progress of pupils by the end of Year 6.

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.
