What the school says...
Haywood Grove is a Hertfordshire maintained special school for primary aged children with social, emotional and mental health difficulties (SEMH).
We provide a warm, welcoming and inclusive environment where children are treated as individuals without judgement or comparison.
We have a passionate conviction that all our children can achieve no matter what they have experienced or done and a total commitment to their success at Haywood Grove and beyond.
We take a unique approach to managing and modifying behaviour that is based on nurture and non-punitive approaches and our website www.haywoodgrove.co.uk aims to give you more information about what we do and what we provide.
We aim to give children the freedom to explore emotions and social behaviour so that behaviour can be unlearnt or adapted by modelling, coaching and teaching a more appropriate range of behaviours. We believe that anti-social behaviours come from an unconscious, fear based state of stress. We do not believe that punishment and reward is the most effective way to support behavioural change. Self-management and self-regulation of behaviour is a far more effective way to achieve pro-social behaviour. ...Read more

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.
