School Description

Victoria Infant and Nursery is an average sized school. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils supported by the pupil premium is much higher than that found nationally. The pupil premium is additional government funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and children who are looked after by the local authority. The proportion of pupils with special educational needs is much higher than the national average. Almost all pupils are White British. A much smaller than average proportion is from minority ethnic backgrounds. Similarly a very small minority speak English as an additional language. The early years provision is part time in Nursery and full time in Reception. The school has close links with the Children’s Centre which is on the same site. Almost half of the children are supported by ‘Early Help’ which involves a range of professional services working with the school to support families. The school manages child care provision on site which is subject to separate inspection and receives a separate report, available on the Ofsted website. Several pupils join the school during Key Stage 1. The school holds numerous awards. Since the previous inspection the school has gained Artsmark Gold Award for the third time, the National Quality label and European Quality label award. The school has links with several overseas schools. The executive headteacher is a National Leader in Education. The acting headteacher leads the West Coast Teaching School Alliance and is vice-chair of the West Coast Local Alliance. Together with other leaders and managers in school who are Specialist Leaders in Education, they provide support for other local schools. The school is an accredited provider for training new teachers. The school is a National Lead School in the network of the Teaching Excellence in Computing Science.

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.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.
