School Description

Nanaksar Free School is a small primary school. It opened in September 2013 with an intake of 114 Reception-aged children in four Reception classes. In September 2014, a further 101 Reception children started. The school will continue to grow to the full primary age range, catering for pupils aged 4–11 years. The school is over-subscribed, as there is a shortage of primary places in the local community. The school is part of a multi-academy trust, which comprises an all-through primary and secondary school, Guru Nanak Sikh Academy, together with Nanaskar Primary. The academy is a teaching school. The board of directors of the trust oversee the work of both schools. The two schools have separate governing bodies. The majority of the trustees are also members of the governing body. Senior leaders from both schools work closely to set the trust’s priorities and to secure improvements across both schools. Classrooms are located on the same campus as Guru Nanak Sikh Academy. They share some of the academy’s facilities, including the gurdwara for assemblies and the hall for lunches. The school has a separate playground and its own unique school uniform. The Year 1 classes are currently taught in temporary accommodation. Most pupils are of Indian heritage. The remaining pupils come from a wide variety of other ethnic groups. Almost all pupils speak English as an additional language. Most pupils speak Punjabi at home, and a small minority speak Arabic, Gujarati, Hindi or Nepalese. Approximately half the children are in the early stages of learning English when they enter Reception. The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs is well below average. The proportion of pupils who are known to be eligible for the pupil premium, which is additional government funding provided for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and looked after children, is well below average. Currently, the leadership team consists of an executive principal of the multi-academy trust and an assistant headteacher. Middle leaders consist of year group leaders for early years and Year 1 and subject coordinators. Further staffing appointments, including leadership posts, will be made as the number of pupils increases. The school’s aim is to build a strong school community based on the principles of Sikhism, honesty, hard work and service to others. These principles underpin the trust’s values, which are service to others, humility, achievement, respect and equality.

Pupil heat map key

(01895) 556644

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.
