School Description

St Matthew’s is a much smaller than average school. However, recently numbers on roll have increased significantly. This year there has been an alteration to the organisation of classes. During morning sessions pupils are split into four classes. These changes have led to an increase in the employment of teachers and teaching assistants. More girls attend than boys. The number of pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities is small; nevertheless this represents a broadly similar proportion of the school cohort to that seen nationally. Numbers of pupils who are considered disadvantaged are small. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for attainment and progress in English and mathematics. The school website does not meet requirements on: the publication of information about governors; special educational needs and/or disabilities; an analysis of the impact of additional funding for disadvantaged pupils and sport premium; or a link to the school and college performance tables. Inspection report: St Matthew’s CofE School, 1–2 November 2016 Page 8 of 10 Information about this inspection During the inspection, meetings were held with the headteacher, teaching staff, a group of pupils and three members of the governing body. I met with a representative of the local authority and a representative of the church diocese. Documents were scrutinised, including safeguarding checks, pupil achievement tracking and records of checks on the quality of teaching. I considered school evaluations and improvement plans. I visited classrooms and spoke to pupils, looked at their books and observed their learning. I scrutinised work produced by both current and past pupils and over a range of subjects. I listened to pupils read. I observed pupils playing at break and lunchtimes. I examined child protection information. I took account of the 10 responses to the Ofsted online parental questionnaire (Parent View). I also took account of nine online parental comments and one letter. I considered the two online survey responses made by staff.

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.
