Special Education Needs
Bamburgh School is a special school in South Tyneside for pupils with medical conditions, physical disabilities as well as pupils who are emotionally vulnerable. The full range of national curriculum subjects are taught throughout the four key stages. The school has a commitment to inclusion and offers support to pupils currently in mainstream schools who would, without additional support from the LA, be pupils in Bamburgh School. Parents and teachers from mainstream schools are welcomed into Bamburgh to discuss relevant issues, and to exchange expertise with the staff. Medical staff, support staff and teachers are willing to share their knowledge and experience to help identify individual needs and to plan for any future educational provision. Members of Bamburgh staff are also willing to make visits to other schools for this purpose. In addition The Alnwick Unit is part of Bamburgh School and caters for children with Asperger's Syndrome or other conditions related to the higher functioning end of the autistic continuum.

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.
