School Description

The school is smaller than an average-sized primary school. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is below average. A larger than average proportion of pupils join the school at times other than the usual admission date. At the time of the inspection, approximately 20% of current pupils had joined the school after Reception or following long periods out of education. The proportion of pupils who are disadvantaged and receive support from the pupil premium is much higher than the national average. One in four pupils are classed as belonging to a minority ethnic group. The vast majority of these pupils are of Gypsy/Roma heritage. The proportion of pupils with SEND is much higher than the national average. Children attend full- and part-time early years provision in the Nursery and Reception. A very small number of pupils attend a pupil referral unit (PRU) that is the responsibility of the local authority. Inspection report: Toll Bar Primary School, 22–23 May 2019 Page 10 of 12 Information about this inspection Inspectors visited all classes across the school, observing teachers more than once in some instances. Many of the observations in lessons were carried out jointly with senior leaders. Meetings were held with senior leaders, the SENCo, subject leaders and members of the governing body, including the chair, and the lead inspector met with representatives from the local authority. Inspectors scrutinised pupils’ work during lessons and with senior leaders in mathematics and English. In addition, an inspector scrutinised a large sample of learning journals belonging to children in Nursery and Reception. An inspector spoke on the telephone with a member of staff from the PRU. Inspectors held informal and formal discussions with many pupils and observed interactions during social times. Inspectors listened to three groups of pupils read and observed staff listening to pupils read. Inspectors observed the work of the school and scrutinised a wide range of evidence, including the school’s self-evaluation, analysis of performance information, action plans and evaluations, attendance records, safeguarding files, recruitment checks, headteacher reports and minutes of governors’ meetings. Inspectors took account of one qualifying complaint made in advance of the inspection. The complaint raised possible concerns about the wider issues concerning the quality of the leadership and management of the school and of the contribution made by the school to the well-being of pupils. Inspectors took into account the 27 responses from parents who completed Parent View, Ofsted’s online questionnaire. Inspectors also considered the responses from the 20 members of staff and one pupil who completed Ofsted’s online surveys.

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.
