Special Education Needs
We are an inclusive school. We work with parents to ensure that the provision for each child maximises the chances of success. We are the adults and are prepared to change in order to accommodate all children whatever their difficulties. All teachers and support staff believe in doing their very best for every child. We have a parent support group for parents of children with individual education plans or who require additional input from school. We have partnerships with two local special schools and integrate some of their children into mainstream classes or our children visit their schools. Each year we have an “Inclusion day and Picnic” where children from these special schools come and join in a day of fun and learning together. (It usually involves clowns and circle games that can use sign language etc as well as the chance to get to make new friends from the other schools.)We also host a holiday club for children with special needs during the Easter and Summer holidays. We have worked with our linked Junior School on the Dyslexia friendly criteria and in the past have hosted the local Dyslexia Association Parent Support Group information and self help sessions. We have a very good success record with integrating children on the Autistic spectrum.
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.
