Special Education Needs
The Governors, Head Teacher and Staff of Wednesfield High School make it their SEN priority objective to meet the needs of all students. This entails a detailed assessment and identification of need upon entry which, in turn, informs the planning that underpins the level and content of the work the students undertake. The assessment also triggers, where necessary, the involvement of support agencies from outside school. The student is consulted at every stage of the SEN process and his/her wishes are considered to be extremely important as is the help and support of parents/carers. The school has an ongoing dialogue with parents of students who have a Statement of SEN. The Special Needs Coordinator (SENCO) takes responsibility for the day to day operation of SEN provision. He is assisted by a team that includes an SEN Teacher, Teaching Assistants and Mentors. Other support is provided on a regular basis by the LEA's Learning Support Team as well as other agencies from time to time. The school has been awarded the Basic Skills Agency Charter Mark for the 3rd time. The SENCO has been working with SEN youngsters for over 25 years.
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.
