Overall school performance (for comparison or review only)
Special Education Needs
We have six classes and 7 Teaching Assistants. One TA is full time and 6 are part time. The SENCO is a full time teacher so Class Teachers (CT) are responsible for their own children on the Code of Practice. Children are identified for academic help from examination of the tracking records of achievement kept for every individual. Other problems may be flagged up by parents, class teachers, the Infant School or helpers. Children are assessed using the Surrey guidelines (FR13). Tests used are NFER Nelson reading, comprehension, maths 7-11, NARA, Vernon's spellings, PIPS and QCA end of year tests. We also bring in outside agencies (after consultation with the Multi Professional Team) for further assessment and advice and liaise with them regarding the writing of IEPs. Children may be targeted for help in particular areas e.g. maths, in which case they will get most or all of their help there. All children on SA+ will get their allotted 2 hours (or equivalent) with a TA, some may get extra. We have no specialist teachers so TAs will liaise with the CTs on work programmes and work either individually with the children or in small groups, in or out of the classroom.
Interpreting catchment maps
The maps show in colour where the pupils at a school came from*. Red = most pupils to Blue = fewest.
Where the map is not coloured we have no record in the previous three years of any pupils being admitted from that location based on the options chosen.
For help and explanation of our catchment maps see: Catchment maps explained
If there are more applicants to a school than it has places for, who gets in is determined by which applicants best fulfil the admissions criteria.
Admissions criteria are often complicated, and may change from year to year. The best source of information is usually the relevant local authority website, but once you have set your sights on a school it is a good idea to ask them how they see things panning out for the year that you are interested in.
Many schools admit children based on distance from the school or a fixed catchment area. For such schools, the cut-off distance will vary from year to year, especially if the school give priority to siblings, and the pattern will be of a central core with outliers (who will mostly be siblings). Schools that admit on the basis of academic or religious selection will have a much more scattered pattern.
*The coloured areas outlined in black are Census Output Areas. These are made up of a group of neighbouring postcodes, which accounts for their odd shapes. These provide an indication, but not a precise map, of the school’s catchment: always refer to local authority and school websites for precise information.
The 'hotter' the colour the more children have been admitted.
