Special Education Needs
Dame Hannah Rogers School is a Non-Maintained Residential Special School and Further Education Department. We meet the needs of students with physical difficulties and associated learning difficulties (from moderate to profound) in addition many have sensory impairments usually associated with their disabilities. Many of our students have complex physical or medical problems. We are greatly experienced in working with young people who have communication difficulties. Our current age range is from 5-19 years. We meet those needs by providing a multi-disciplinary team approach alongside a waking hour curriculum. Students within the school (5-16 years) have access to a broad and balanced inclusive curriculum, which is specifically matched to individual needs. We follow the National Curriculum and offer a range of accredited courses at Key Stage 4 and above. The high staff to student ratio, which includes 24 hour nursing cover, ensures that all students have access to a high standard of support for all aspects of their school/residential experience. Standards of care are very high and the school has had excellent inspection results from the Commission for Social Care Inspection and Ofsted. Within our Further Education Department (16-19 years) we offer Life Skills alongside basic educational skills and the students are housed in specially adapted bungalows in order to maximise their independence skills. A range of therapies is provided including Physiotherapy, Speech and Language Therapy,Music Therapy, Hydrotherapy, Rebound Therapy and Riding for the Disabled.Therapy. Dame Hannah Rogers School has been included on the OFSTED Outstanding Providers List having received three outstanding inspection reports. We have an exceptional learning environment.

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.
