Special Education Needs

At Ormskirk Asmall Primary School our mission statement is: 'Working happily together to ensure opportunity and achievement for all.' The whole ethos of Asmall School reflects that all children irrespective of ability are entitled to full access to a broadly based and balanced curriculum which includes the statutory National Curriculum. The school enhances this with cross curricular issues and links with the wider community. Teachers and teaching assistants have a flexible approach to differentiating each lesson. They may provide additional visual stimuli (objects and pictures) to enhance understanding. The child's method of recording work may be modified, ie enlarged workbooks, or using a word processing program on the computer or some adult scribing. The child may receive some pre- or post-tutoring of class work when withdrawn individually to promote the child's success in class and hence his/her self esteem. The Asmall School building has been adapted to enable easy access for disabled people. It is a single storey and has ramps to each school entrance. There is a toilet and lifting equipment for physically disabled children. Asmall has a Special Educational Resource Facility for Hearing Impaired children, with a full time qualified and experienced Teacher of the Deaf and Teaching Assistant. Adaptations have been made to classrooms to reduce noise levels. Some classrooms have a Soundfield System and radio hearing aids are provided.

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

Further reading

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.
