Overall school performance (for comparison or review only)
Special Education Needs
We support children who have difficulties with areas of their learning and/or behaviour, through a very organised system. We also have a register of those children with high ability - supporting these children through differentiation in the clasroom as well as through enrichment activities. We are developing into a school of excellence for the use of 'Makaton' - as we have children with speech and language dificulties. We have teaching assistants in all classes who support small groups of children, and we have a senior teaching assistant who manages the special needs children's Individual Education Plans. This senior TA is trained to test children for dyslexia. We use a wide range of programmes to support children's individual needs. We also have good relationships with outside agencies for support with specific difficulties.
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.
