Special Education Needs
Silverdale is a small school that specialises in work with those who have severe emotional, social and behavioural difficulties. All students have a Statement of Special Educational Needs and most of them attend full-time. Students come to Silverdale following the assessment procedures of the local authority. We are a co-educational school and cater for 8 Key Stage 2 students and 32 Key Stage 3 and 4 students. The school is based in a new building which opened in 2003. It lies within the North Tyneside Local Education Authroity and is situated in the Howdon area. The success of the school is based on high expectations, mutual trust, caring for each other and taking responsibility.
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.
