Special Education Needs
Lambs Lane Primary School is a mainstream school catering for children from 5 to 11 years of age. We have a resource for physically disabled children which at the moment provides for up to 10 children. We are a single form entry school and all of our resource children are based within the appropriate year group. Children from the resource work with their class mates for the majority of the time although there are opportunities for children to receive physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech and language provision in line with the requirements of their statements. We have a teacher-in-charge of the resource who is in close liaison with class teachers and class teaching assistants and if appropriate can initiate interventions for literacy or maths. Careful consideration is also given to the resources made available to children so that they can fully access the curriculum. A full-time welfare assistant sees to the medical needs of the children. In line with our inclusion policy we also have children with other disabilities including Asperger's syndrome, autism, dyslexia and speech and language disorders.

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.
