School Description

This is a smaller- than- average sized primary school. Almost all pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of disabled pupils, those with special educational needs and pupils known to be eligible for free school meals is very low compared to the national average. The school meets the current floor standard. The school has achieved Investors in People and Healthy School status and holds a number of awards, including the Inclusion Quality Mark and Artsmark gold awards. Since the previous inspection, there have been significant staff changes in Key Stage 1 and a new deputy headteacher was appointed in May 2011 Inspection report: Willaston CofE Primary School, 27–28 February 2012 4 of 12 Inspect ion grades: 1 is outstanding, 2 is good, 3 is sat isfactory and 4 is inadequate Please tur n to the glossary for a description of the grades and inspection terms Inspection judgements Overall Effectiveness 2 Achievement of pupils Quality of teaching Behaviour and safety of pupils Leadership and management 2 2 2 2 Key Findings Willaston is a good school. Its main strengths are: in Key Stage 2 teaching is good with examples of outstanding practice, the curriculum is rich and varied and attendance is consistently high. Leaders acknowledge the school’s overall effectiveness is not outstanding, as they are striving for, because there is still more to do. In Key Stage 1, progress, although satisfactory overall, is uneven because teachers’ expectations of what pupils can achieve are not always high enough. Furthermore, whilst priorities for improvement are clearly set out in the school development plan, success criteria are not defined sharply enough, and this reduces leaders’ ability to assess the impact of their actions.

The concentration of pupils shows likelihood of admission based on distance criteria

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.
