School Description

Wellsprings is a co-educational school set within the Taunton town district. Wellsprings Primary School is a larger than average-sized primary school. It has mixed classes in the key stage 2. The school has a governor-run Nursery on-site. This caters for three- and four-year-old children. The proportion of pupils eligible for free school meals and disadvantaged funding is above the national average. The proportion of pupils with SEND is also above the national average. However, the proportion of pupils with an EHC plan is lower than the national average. The number of pupils who join the school other than at the usual starting points is higher than the national average. Most pupils are from White British backgrounds. Inspection report: Wellsprings Primary School, 10 to 11 July 2019 Page 10 of 12 Information about this inspection Inspectors observed pupils in all classes across the school, sometimes accompanied by the headteacher or leaders. Discussions took place with the headteacher, SENCo, assistant headteacher(s) and other subject/team leaders. Additional discussions were held with the local authority adviser and the school’s effectiveness partner. The inspectors gained the views of pupils throughout the inspection, including discussions at breaktimes. The inspectors looked at pupils’ work in books to establish the current quality of work and standards of current pupils in books. An inspector listened to pupils read in Years 1 and 2. They also scrutinised pupils’ daily reading records and assessments of others across the school. Inspectors spoke with pupils and parents to seek their views of the school. The 37 responses from Parent View and corresponding free-texts comments were considered by inspectors. In addition, inspectors considered information from surveys for staff and pupils. Inspectors scrutinised a number of documents, including governor visits and minutes, improvement plans, including RAP, and information relating to behaviour, safety and safeguarding. An inspector also scrutinised documents and records relating to pupils’ behaviour and exclusions. An inspector met with representatives of the governing body.

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.
