Special Education Needs
We aim to support all students experiencing difficulties so that everyone can make the greatest possible progress in their learning. This is offered in many ways: • In-class support with an extra adult in the classroom to help students; • Withdrawal lessons for some students to give them extra help; • Advice to teachers from our team of specialists to help produce teaching materials; • Enrichment sessions providing extra help outside normal lesson times for those students who choose to come along. Specific skills work might include personal organisation, or more advanced study skills such as speed reading, mind mapping or revision techniques. Help can be requested by the students themselves, by parents or by staff. The support programme is managed by the Special Needs Co-ordinator who is always pleased to discuss with parents any problems their children may be experiencing.
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.
