What the school says...

Thank you for taking the time to find out about our school. At Merton Park Primary we pride ourselves in being a friendly and open school, where children and staff alike welcome visitors and are happy to talk about their school and its achievements. We provide an excellent educational experience that helps our pupils to develop essential skills in literacy, numeracy and ICT. There is a varied and stimulating curriculum in each year group with an emphasis on using the rich range of resources available to us in the local area and beyond, as we believe that this helps to develop lively and enquiring minds.

On joining the school, children quickly become an integral part of the community. Merton Park is a small school with a caring, family atmosphere where all children are taught the importance of consideration and respect for other people and their beliefs. Parents and carers play a valuable role, not only in supporting their own children but by offering help to the school in a variety of ways.

We look forward to working with you and your child and providing the best opportunities to ensure that their time at Merton Park Primary is both happy and successful.

Independent schools frequently offer IGCSEs or other qualifications alongside or as an alternative to GCSE. The DfE does not record performance data for these exams so independent school GCSE data is frequently misleading; parents should check the results with the schools.

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

Further reading

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.
