School Description

In accordance with section 13(4) of the Education act 2005, Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector is of the opinion that the school no longer requires special measures. The school is sponsored by the Bradford Diocesan Academies Trust. Since the last inspection, there have been significant changes to staffing and leadership. The head of school was appointed in April 2017. The school has also been supported by an executive principal from the multi-academy trust, on a part-time basis. Since becoming an academy, the school developed an academy transition board. An additional academy achievement board has recently been introduced in the transition to establishing a local governing body. These boards are accountable to the trust board for the school’s progress. The multi-academy trust provides a wide range of support to develop school leadership and the quality of teaching, learning and assessment. For example, the part-time Inspection report: St Oswald’s Church of England Primary Academy, 4–5 July 2018 Page 10 of 13 executive principal, consultant headteacher and specialist leaders of education provide targeted support. The school admits a large proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language, many of whom have little or no English when joining the school. Some pupils have not experienced an educational setting before, and many begin school at times other than the start of Nursery or Reception. The number of pupils leaving and joining the school throughout the year is very high. Children from two years of age receive part-time education in the early years provision. Those in Reception receive full-time education. The school runs a breakfast club. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils supported by the pupil premium is well above the national average. A very large proportion of pupils are from minority ethnic groups. The proportion of pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities is well above the national average. The proportion who have an education, health and care plan is less than average. In the 2016/17 academic year, the school met the government’s floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics.

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.
