School Description

Ladock Church of England School converted to become an academy school on 1 December 2013. When its predecessor school, Ladock Church of England Primary School, was last inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be a good school. The school is smaller than the average-sized primary school. The majority of pupils attending the school are of White British heritage. The proportion of disabled pupils or those who have special educational needs is below average. The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium (additional government funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and children who are looked after) is below average. The number of pupils eligible for free school meals varies significantly from year to year. Currently, and in recent years, there have been very few pupils in receipt of free school meals in Year 6. An above average proportion of pupils either join or leave the school other than at the normal times. The number of pupils joining each year group across the school varies significantly. Over time, most arrivals have been into Years 1 and 2. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics. The school provides its own breakfast club. Children start the school’s early years provision in a Nursery setting, which they attend for part of the week alongside children in a Reception and Year 1 class. Children commence their Year in Reception on a full-time basis. Other pupils in the school are taught in two mixed-aged classes, with some pupils in Years 3 and 4 taught as a separate group for part of the week. On 1 December 2013, the school became a member of the St Piran’s Cross Church of England MultiAcademy Trust. The multi-academy trust contains five primary schools. A board of directors and an interim exective principal direct the work of the academy trust. This school retains its own headteacher and local governing body. The headteacher was absent from school for several months, following a serious accident. During this period, a senior teacher, aided by the executive principal of the academy trust, led the school. The school has experienced significant changes in teaching and leadership staff since becoming an academy. This academic year, the headteacher has returned to duty and three new teachers have been appointed. The academy trust has also experienced changes in leadership in recent years. The work of the school is currently overseen by an interim executive principal of the academy trust. A new executive principal has been appointed and will commence his duties next term.

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.
