School Description

This primary school is of much smaller than average size and serves a rural part of North Cornwall. The proportion of pupils with special educational needs supported by school action is average, while the proportion who are supported by school action plus is below average. These pupils have a range of needs, mainly moderate learning difficulties. There are currently no pupils with statements of special educational needs. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium is average. The pupil premium provides additional funding for children in local authority care, pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and children of families in the armed services. No pupils who currently qualify for this funding have subsequently left the school. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress. In 2012, the governing body changed the status of the school from voluntary controlled to voluntary aided. This change was made mainly to allow greater flexibility of decision-making over matters such as the dates of school terms. The school has recently become an associate member of the Bude Community’s Schools’ Trust, which promotes and enables collaboration between local schools. In 2012, the governing body assumed management responsibility for the pre-school located on the school site. The pre-school was not inspected on this occasion.

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 annual School Census.

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 annual 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.

BY PARENTS, FOR PARENTS

AUTHOR:
"> Moved to Devon from Bath in September with our 2 boys. The school is really great - small with a very caring approach - feels a bit like a large family. Very active PTA - great events and they have paid for some really nice activities and experiences for the children. The boys are doing so well here - reading is such a huge part of their school life and the school library is fantastic. The teaching is superb and you get a real sense that the teaching staff know your children well. They have regular forest school sessions and our elder boy has had swimming lessons too. There is also lots going on after school - art club, sports club, cricket club etc and there has been a cross-county team this winter. The grounds of the school include a science garden and a beautiful nature reserve and even a wind turbine. Very happy with our choice of school, as are our children.
