Special Education Needs
We are an inclusive school and strive to ensure that all students feel that they are supported in reaching their full potential. We are a named SpLD unit with places for six statemented students, two members of staff are currently undertaking courses in SpLD. We also have a students' support area which is open to all. Some SpLD students are withdrawn from a small number of classes for specific support and guidance regarding literacy. In KS3 some students are disapplied from one MFL in order to work on basic literacy and numeracy skills and in KS4 some students take learning support as an option. These groups have been set up in order to ensure the students receive the support they need without having to catch up on work missed when withdrawn from an occasional lesson. Most of our support is carried out in the classroom with subject specialist teaching assistants. Teaching assistants sometimes withdraw small groups of students from the class to work on the subject/topic being studied in a different way with a higher adult:student ratio. Teaching assistants and teachers work closely together. There are opportunities for students to access support with homework and to attend small group sessions in order to improve skills such as fine and gross motor, social skills, sequencing and planning etc.During the first 6 weeks all students are monitored by teaching and support staff and all hard data collated. Decisions about who may need support are made around the first half term. Parents are informed of any concerns and are invited to comment or meet with the LS co-ordinator. IEPs are drawn up and distributed to teaching staff and parents.

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.
