School Description

This is smaller than the average-sized primary school. Pupils are taught in single-aged classes. The new headteacher took up her post in April 2014. The school has a nursery accepting children for both morning and afternoon sessions. The proportion of pupils of minority ethnic heritage is well above the national average. The proportion of pupils who speak English as a second language is well above average. The proportion of pupils who are supported through a statement of special educational needs is average. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils, eligible for the pupil premium, is above the national average. The pupil premium is additional government funding to help pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals or who are looked after. There is pre-school provision on the school site but this is managed and inspected separately. Pupils from Year 6 were away from school at the time of the inspection on a residential visit. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for the attainment and progress of pupils by the end of Year 6.

Pupil heat map key

020 7926 1000

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.

Streatham Wells Primary School Reviews

Average Rating:


“A warm, nurturing and positive place”
"> I agree the school has good teachers, who are responsive to individual children's needs (both high achievers and those who need extra help). In terms of activities (both curriculum and extra-curriculum) the school offers a very wide range of opportunities, especially for such a small school. The atmosphere is calm, despite the fact that the school doesn't conform to traditional principles of discipline and control: classrooms are open-walled to the corridor, there is no uniform, and teachers are called by their first names. It is a very mature environment as a result. I have to disagree with the comment about the school community. I've found it a very warm school that genuinely reflects the diversity of the local community - with different ethnicities and religions reflected in both the governing body and the PTA. I'd recommend it to anyone locally; the main challenge is the very tight catchment area.
“Cold Atmosphere”
"> There are good teachers, however as a parent having to do the school run everyday, I notice a lack of warmth which gives that sense of community. Moreover, the PTA members are there operating mechanically and cliquey; you don't get the impression that every child is like theirs and worst of all they walk past you like you are a cardboard cut out. My conclusion, if you were from an ethnic background or ethnic faith Streatham Wells is definitely the wrong place for your child.
