Special Education Needs
The school has a strong Learning Support Department that helps pupils with specific difficulties including learning, physical, emotional and behavioural to have access to the National Curriculum and to achieve success. The school embraces the stepped approach outlined in the Code of Practice; some pupils are statemented and others are on School Action or Action Plus. Emphasis is on suppport in the classroom and there are opportunities for pupils to take part in group and one to one work. The SENCO, School Action Manager and Learning Mentor help pupils with their organisation, learning and emotional well being, the Pupil Support Centre provides intense support for pupils who are out of the mainstream for a specific period of time and individual personalised programmes of study including, timetable adjustments, Successmaker, Smart Thinking and addtional literacy ensure there is a variety of approaches to ensure every child has opportunities to achieve their potential. The Department works with pupils, staff, outside agencies and parents to ensure all pupils have the opportunity to participate in all school and extra curricular activities.
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.
