School Description

Lache Primary School is an average-sized school. The proportion of pupils who are disadvantaged is well above average. Up to 80% of pupils in some classes are supported through pupil premium funding. The proportion of pupils with SEND is well above average, as is the number of pupils with EHC plans. The school operates a resource base called The Willows, for pupils who have a range of special educational needs, including social, emotional and mental health needs and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. At the time of the inspection, there were nine pupils in the resource base, all have EHC plans. Those attending the resource base are from across the local authority and further afield. The school experiences high levels of mobility, with pupils starting and leaving the schools at times other than the beginning of the academic year. Immediately prior to the inspection up to 20 pupils left the school. Up to a fifth of pupils currently in the Inspection report: Lache Primary School, 5–6 February 2019 Page 11 of 14 school joined in the last year. A larger than average proportion of pupils is from different Traveller communities. Almost all pupils are of White British origin, very few speak English as an additional language. All children in the Reception class attend full time. Children attend the Nursery class on a full- or part-time basis. Leaders work closely with IGNITE (Teaching School Alliance) for training and professional development purposes. Since the previous inspection the senior leadership team has been restructured to include a new deputy headteacher. In addition, there have been several staffing changes, including the appointment of two teachers. The governing body has been reorganised to include several new governors, including the chair of the governing body.

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.
