Do you know this school?

The schools we choose, and what we say about them, are founded on parents’ views. If you know this school, please share your views with us.

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

Bell Lane School is a mainstream primary school that caters for children from 3 - 11 years of age. Approximately 25% of the children hold a Statement of Special Educational Need and thus we have small classes and a high ratio of adults to children. We have a specialist department for children with speech and language disorders and this is staffed by experienced professionals who are able to disseminate their wide range of knowledge and expertise throughout the school. The school employs their own speech and language therapist and their own occupational therapist to ensure that children receive the regular programmes of therapy that will meet their needs. The school has won an award from the local authority for its success at including children with a wide range of needs. All children, regardless of their level of difficulty, are totally included in all their class activities and spend the bulk of their time in their mainstream classroom with their peers. They have full access to the Foundation or National Curriculum, as appropriate, and this will be differentiated as necessary to meet their individual needs. Good links with parents are high on the agenda of the school to do the best by the children, and the staff are welcoming and happy to meet prospective and existing parents by appointment. Bell Lane is a happy and welcoming school whose ethos is to make sure every child has high self esteem, feels valued, and is able to fulfil their potential both academically and socially.

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.
