What the school says...

The Market Weighton School is on the edge of the town, but for many it is in the heart of the community. It is a caring school with values of ‘respect, honesty, compassion, resilience, industry and courage’. Inspired pupils are happy to demonstrate these qualities because they understand their importance.

Our aims for students are: Have skills and confidence to thrive in a changing world. Have independence and resilience, take charge of their own learning and lives. Become active and responsible as citizens. Have unlimited aspirations.

In order to achieve these aims we will seek as a school to: Provide outstanding learning opportunities to meet individual needs. Challenge students to achieve ambitious personal goals. Expect the highest standards of behaviour and respect.

Students follow a curriculum focused on academic and personal qualities, including social and emotional development. We view both strands as complementary and prepare students for the society into which they will emerge.
Students have an entitlement to a rich curriculum. We have an inclusive ethos, adapting the curriculum to meet the needs of our students.

Wellbeing is paramount and students benefit from positive relationships with staff. As a result, students feel secure and able to focus on learning.

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

Further reading

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.
