Special Education Needs
The school has an established reputation for the quality and consistency of its Special Needs provision, for mainstream and Language Unit children. A full-time mainstream Special Needs Co-ordinator organises and monitors support for children on entry and regular assessment ensures that intervention is timely and consistent with a child's needs. The Language Unit accommodates 26 children with Statements of Special Need aged between 5 and 11, the children are grouped into three classes, taught by teachers with specific qualifications and expertise and supported within mainstream classes when integrating with mainstream pupils. We operate a system of "exchange integration" where mainstream children are taught in the Unit classes for certain lessons by Unit staff. This arrangement benefits mainstream children for whom smaller teaching groups and more individual attention is appropriate. There are regular, on-site, qualified Speech Therapists, seconded to the school from the local Health Authority, who work with Unit children and some mainstream pupils during the each school day.

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.
