Special Education Needs
The SEN list is actively monitored and adjusted to meet the needs of all students. Statemented students are fully supported as dictated by the specificity of the statement of educational need. The Learning Support department works hard to meet the needs of school action and school action plus students by use of teaching assistants in the classroom, in small groups and on a 1:1 basis. Individual education plans are drawn up for all students on the list and regularly reviewed by all partners. Parental contact and involvement is a vital part of this. The department deals with and has experience of all types of learning difficulty within a well resourced and appropriately qualified team. Outside agencies are involved with specific students as required. The recent OFSTED inspection graded the support provided for students within the school as outstanding.
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.
