Special Education Needs
Mayfield offers an excellent education to pupils with a wide range of learning difficulties. The school has a dedicated team of professionals who make assessments and then design and implement individual education and therapy programmes. These programmes are tailored to meet the needs of each individual child whilst offering the same range of opportunities found in a mainstream school. The school offers an excellent range of facilities including: purpose-built therapy suite, multi-sensory room, therapeutic and learner swimming pool, adventure playground, sensory garden and extensive playing fields. As well as our facilities, we feel that our most important resource is our staff, who work together providing a co-ordinated approach meeting every aspect of each child’s needs. Our team includes: experienced teachers, experienced special support assistants, speech and language therapists, physiotherapists, occupational therapist, and our school nurse. In addition, we have regular visits from other professionals offering advice and support, including two fully qualified teachers of the Hearing and Visual Impaired and our Educational Psychologist. The schools' medical, dental and paediatric services also hold regular clinics in school.

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.
