What the school says...

Paxton Primary School is a 1 form entry school based in West Norwood, South London.

Paxton joined Gipsy Hill Federation in 2009 and along with other schools in the Federation, benefits from and shares a rich range of expertise and skills. We are incredibly proud that Ofsted has judged our school as Outstanding in all areas (March 2013).

We are currently a one-form entry school with two Reception classes and are very excited about our current development project. In September 2016 the children will move into a brand new school building, currently being built on our school site, which will grow incrementally to be three forms of entry, reaching full capacity in 2022.

We believe that every child can attain educational excellence. Our exceptionally skilled staff are dedicated to high standards and committed to enabling all children to reach their full potential, across our wonderfully broad, creative and stimulating curriculum. We provide a supportive and purposeful environment, in which children are eager to learn and excited about taking on new experiences and skills.

Our children develop self-esteem, self-worth and a sense of pride in themselves and their school. They respect and understand the needs of others, work well together and contribute fully to the vibrant life of the school, making it an amazingly enriched community. This fantastic start in their school life enables them to flourish and develop into unique and self-confident individuals, who can contribute fully to and thrive in the wider world.

"STAFF ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT GIVING THE PUPILS THE BEST OPPORTUNITIES THEY CAN IN ORDER TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE EXCELLENTLY WELL PREPARED FOR THE NEXT STAGE IN THEIR EDUCATION." MARCH 2013 OFSTED REPORT

We value and welcome the involvement and commitment which our parents/carers show in the education of their children. We know that it is the good working relationship between children, staff, parents/carers and governors, which contributes so greatly to the overall effectiveness and success of this school.

We are keen to offer prospective parents tours at the beginning of each academic year, so please do contact us directly if you would like a visit to learn more about the school.

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.

quite often

sometimes, but not in this year
