Special Education Needs
There is a strong Learning Support Department within the college; it consists of four SEN teachers, including the Learning Support Co-ordinator and the Behaviour Co-ordinator, in addition to two full-time SSAs and two part-time SSAs. Support provided for students varies from one-to-one individual support, to small group Literacy and Numeracy support, alongside general in-class support. Learning Support staff have received training in Dyslexia, Speech and Language difficulties, Behaviour Management and working with students with Sensory Impairments. In addition to on-site support, the college shares a BIP-funded off-site unit for EBSD students to access as appropriate.
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.
