Special Education Needs
Palfrey Junior School is fully inclusive of children with a wide range of Special Educational Needs and/or English as an Additional Language. We have expertise in working with hearing and visually impaired children, physical disabilities, ADHD, and those with learning difficulties. We have had children with Dysgraphia, Neurofibromatosis and Agensis of the Corpus Callosum. We take pride in offering all our children equal access to a rich curriculum, regardless of ability. At Palfrey we also offer pastoral care from a committed and caring staff. We believe that school should be a happy and rewarding experience for all.
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.
