What the school says...
We are a very samll rural school in a relatively isolated situation. We emphasise working together. Parents, Governors and staff work together to provide the best we can for the children. The school has a strong positive ethos where children are valued.
This is not currently a GSG-reviewed school.

Special Education Needs
Inclusion is a strength of the school. All children, whatever their ability are included in all school activities. We provide a great deal of classroom support so that children are able to access as many areas of the curriculum as possible and achieve at their own level. We work in two Key Stage classes with teaching assistants in each class. Children with special needs are usually supported within the classroom but occasionally are taken out of class for specific support. The school has very good links with all pupil and parent services and these are used whenever it is considered of best benefit to the children.
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.
