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

The Causeway School is co-located with Hazel Court Special School. It first opened its door to students in September 2000. It has modern facilities and shares its canteen, library and school hall with the students from Hazel Court. The co-location has brought benefits for students in both schools, with students having the opportunities to share their learning and take part in joint creative projects, including a week in Spain in year seven. Spanish is the modern foreign language taught at the school. The school operates an inclusive policy and aims to meet the individual needs of all its students. In September 2005 the school adopted a 'pathways' curriculum which provides extra support for students working below or towards recommended National Curriculum levels. It enables a more varied curriculum for selected students at KS4 that includes work experience and increased flexiblity courses at the local further education colleges, whilst still studying at school to achieve GCSE's in core subjects. The school has an inclusion unit that provides support for both learning and behavioural difficulties. SEN support at the school is delivered through a differentiated curriculum, in-class support, 1:1 and group withdrawal from lessons to attend specific programmes and mentoring. Students with statements are supported in lessons by teaching assistants, ranging from full-time support to specifical targeted support depending on need.

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.
