Special Education Needs
The Beacon School caters for children aged between 5 and 16 years of age who exhibit emotional and behavioral difficulties. Children with emotional and behavioural difficulties need a highly structured environment in order to make the maximum amount of progress. This is provided through the medium of Positive Behaviour Management Techniques. Verbal reinforcements and praise are very much in evidence. It is an essential part of the school’s work for staff to develop warm, caring relationships with the pupils. The school has a long record of successful practice both in terms of social and academic achievement. The school offers GCSE courses in English, English iterature, maths, science, design & technology, art & design and PE; CLAIT and Entry Level Certificate in ICT. The AQA Unit Award Scheme is offered in a wide range of citizenship, careers, social and curriculum areas. The school underwent an OFSTED inspection in November 2002. This was highly successful and the school was described as, “A good school with significant very good features”.

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.
