School Description

This is a larger-than-average primary school. The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs supported through school action is in line with the national average. The proportion supported through school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is slightly higher than the national average. The proportion of pupils eligible for the pupil premium, which provides additional funding for looked after pupils, those entitled to free school meals and the children of service families, is much higher than the national average. Pupils come from a wide variety of ethnic backgrounds, with White British and Black African forming the largest groups. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is more than double the national average, and many of these pupils are at an early stage of learning English when they join the school. A high number of pupils join and leave the school at other than the usual times. The school does not currently use any alternative provision for its pupils. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress. A new deputy headteacher has taken up post since the previous inspection. The school runs a family centre on the same site which was not inspected at this time.

Pupil heat map key


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.

Wendell Park Primary School Reviews

Average Rating:


“Our lovely local school”
"> We have a child in Year 1 at this school and we're really thrilled with her progress and happiness in her first 18 months of school life. Not only is she making great strides with her reading, writing and maths, we are also hugely impressed with the richness and variety of the learning experience. From French, to choir, to philosophy for children, there is always something new and interesting on the go. We strongly recommend this school.
“great school”
"> This school serves the local community and beyond. Having put 2 children through Wendell park from nursery to yr 6 I can't recommend it enough. Both children received an outstanding education and have since thrived. The staff are dedicated to the success of all children and work tirelessly to provide high quality teaching. The parents are engaged on the whole and work together across cultural boundaries on school events. I only wish more local residents would take up places and invest in their local school.
“I used to love this school”
"> I used to love this school until the headteacher left and with her many of the teachers and assistants. This used to be a great school and could be a great school again one day, but it is currently in a state of confusion and unfortunately the current pupils are the guinea pigs for testing archaic rules.
