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

Carter Community Sports College is committed to providing equal opportunities for all students to access a broad and balanced curriculum. Support is provided in all areas of the curriculum through small teaching groups, teaching assistants and individual tuition. Work is differentiated to enable all students to access the curriculum and to achieve their academic potential. Close links are maintained with educational support agencies and the "Code of Practice" guides our decision making in all matters relating to educational needs. Strategies for addressing the needs of our students are agreed in either Individual Education Plans or Pastoral Support Plans. These plans usually involve a number of professional bodies and the support of parents is paramount to their success. We recognise the views, experiences and knowledge of parents is vital when addressing special educational needs and close contact between home and the school is encouraged. The school employs a specialist teacher, who withdraws pupils from lessons to provide intensive support with literacy. For further information on special needs provision, contact Miss J Caldwell Special Educational Needs Co-Ordinator.

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.
