What the school says...
Paces is a small specialist school for children living with Cerebral Palsy and other neurological disorders. We are situated in the North of Sheffield and provide education for children from Sheffield and other neighbouring authorities. Paces is a non-maintained special school that delivers the National Curriculum through the framework of Conductive Education.
It is my absolute pleasure and privilege to be the Headteacher of this very special school. Paces is unique in so many ways which should be both recognised, valued and celebrated. I am extremely proud of our ethos and approach to working with children and families. The pupils at Paces thrive on the high expectations that staff have of them and the constant encouragement and opportunity to develop their independence.
Our aim is to provide and develop a curriculum that enriches the learning opportunities for all the children. Our child-centred approach fosters an environment in which each child is given the tools and the motivation to achieve their goals. Each day at Paces is very carefully planned by our fantastic team of staff who are dedicated to providing the highest level of education possible for the children. The children at Paces constantly amaze me with their fantastic attitude to learning and truly deserve the best that we can offer.
The welfare and safeguarding of all our pupils is of paramount importance to us as a team of staff. Everyone here is committed to working closely with parents/carers and other professionals and we love sharing the fantastic achievements of all of our children. We hope that this website gives you an insight into what we do here at Paces.

Special Education Needs
Paces High Green School for Conductive Education is an independent approved day school for pupils from two to eighteen years of age. We provide conductive education combined with the National Curriculum for children with neurological motor disorders such as cerebral palsy. Cerebral Palsy is not just a mobility issue but a complex learning problem. We treat the person as a unified whole and our system tries to serve all the needs they have.

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.
