Roydon is a friendly village school which serves the village community. We believe that learning should be stimulating, exciting and fun. Our grounds consist of a large playing field, three playgrounds, an outdoor swimming pool, an amphitheatre and an adventure playground. We have an early morning breakfast club and a variety of lunchtime and after school activities. ...Read more

Please note: 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.

Special Education Needs

Children are encouraged to take an active part in writing and monitoring their Individual Education Plans. They work closely with teachers and Learning Support Assistants to achieve the targets that have been set for them. We involve parents in reviewing children's progress through regular meetings. We are trying to make our site more accessible to wheelchair users, but there are still parts of the old Victorian building which prohibit access to wheelchairs.

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.
