Special Education Needs
Blanche Nevile School is a school for deaf children working in partnership with a mainstream primary school in Highgate and a secondary school in Muswell Hill, north London. At Blanche Nevile School the pupil is at the centre of our philosophy to create a safe, positive and effective learning environment in which all members of our community are respected. We have high expectations of ourselves and of pupils’ social, emotional and academic development. We believe that effective communication, praise, celebration of success and quality teaching and learning will enable each individual to reach their full potential. We cater for children with a wide range of hearing loss and who use oral language and/or British Sign Language from pre-school to post–16. Within our Sign Bilingual philosophy, we have a child centred approach to learning and communication. Blanche Nevile offers specialist teaching in small groups, reverse inclusion groups and support in appropriate mainstream inclusion classes. Pupils are taught and supported by qualified teachers of the deaf, deaf instructors, communication support workers, nursery nurses, learning support assistants and speech and language therapists Blanche Nevile School for deaf children works in close partnership with Highgate Primary School and Fortismere secondary school at all levels. There is a continuum of inclusion, where deaf children include into mainstream classes depending on their needs, and hearing children include into Blanche Nevile classes, providing good language models and benefiting from smaller group work. BSL is widely used throughout the community and BSL clubs/classes are provided for children, staff and parents from both schools. There is deaf awareness training for all staff and children, and a number of Blanche Nevile staff provide good role models as deaf adults.
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.
