School Description

The Tynings Primary School is slightly larger than most primary schools. The majority of pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is much lower than the national average. The proportion of pupils eligible for the additional pupil premium funding is just below the national average. The proportion of pupils at the school who have SEN and/or disabilities is just above average. The school is above the government’s current floor standards for schools. A serious incident that occurred at the school since the last inspection has been investigated by the appropriate authorities and is now closed. Ofsted does not have the power to investigate incidents of this kind. The school’s provision for the welfare of pupils and the effectiveness of its work to keep pupils safe has been inspected against the regulations currently in place. Inspection report: The Tynings School, 11–12 July 2018 Page 9 of 11 Information about this inspection Inspectors visited classes across the school, many together with the headteacher or deputy headteacher. Inspectors talked to pupils about their learning and looked at their work with them in a range of subjects. The inspection team observed and talked with pupils during breaktimes and lunchtimes and as they moved around the school. They met formally with a group of pupils to gather their views and listened to pupils read. Meetings were held with school leaders, governors and a local authority representative. An inspector met with a group of staff to gather their views and considered the 33 responses to the staff online survey. Inspectors looked at the school’s documents and procedures, including information about current pupils’ progress and records of the monitoring of teaching and learning. Inspectors examined the school’s policies and procedures concerning safeguarding, including a check of the school’s single central record and systems concerning the recruitment of staff. Inspectors met with leaders, including governors, responsible for safeguarding and spoke with staff and pupils about their understanding of how to keep pupils safe. Inspectors took into account the 124 responses to Ofsted’s online survey, Parent View, and a letter from a parent. The inspection team spoke with parents at the start and end of the day and in the lunch hall on a lunch ‘taster session’ with their children.

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.
