Special Education Needs
'Springfield School is a community school serving Mid Cheshire and surrounding area. The school offers full or part time education for children aged 2 to 5 years, full time education for children 5 to 16 years, and a sixth form for students aged 16 to 19 years. The school provides for pupils with severe and profound learning difficulties and for pupils with autism. We hope to provide a stimulating and attractive environment for growing children. We have excellent facilities which include a versatile hall with stage and indoor physical education area, a design technology/art workshop, a dining area for younger pupils and a self-service dining area for older pupils. There is also a hydrotherapy pool, medical room, library and a newly built therapy unit. Outdoor facilities are similarly good with a traditional playground and equipment; sports field and separate class play areas. Three minibuses, one of which is adapted for pupils with physical difficulties allow a wide variety of 'out of school' and residential activities as well as ready access to local sports centres and colleges of further and higher education. A range of teaching and learning techniques is used with an emphasis on tried and tested, structured and systematic learning programmes. Additional specialist support is given in certain areas of the curriculum: language development by the speech therapist; physical development by the physiotherapists and personal, social and health education by the nurse and occupational therapist. Springfield is an outstanding school providing extremely good value for money.

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.
