Independent schools frequently offer IGCSEs or other qualifications alongside or as an alternative to GCSE. The DfE does not record performance data for these exams so independent school GCSE data is frequently misleading; parents should check the results with the schools.

Special Education Needs

Woodfield is a very positive, forward looking school where staff work together as a team with a shared vision for future developments. Our main aim is to provide real quality education and support for our pupils, all of whom have severe learning difficulties and some have disabilities such as physical and sensory impairments and autism. We cater for up to 67 pupils aged 3 to 19, with an Autism Base for an additional 9 pupils. Our last Ofsted in July 2003 was very positive Ofsted and we have been re-accredited with the Investors in People award. We are involved in many interesting developments, including Records of Achievement, integration with mainstream schools, ASDAN etc. We have an Autism Resource Base, a new Technology Art Science Block and plans for further expansion. As a school, we place high importance on the value of the individual, and on equal opportunities for all. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum, including the National Curriculum, which ensures that all pupils have the opportunity to develop the basic and necessary skills, as well as having full access to subjects, such as Music, Drama, Technology, Art and Craft and Science. All pupils have Individual Education Plans and we provide a developing curriculum, which is age appropriate and caters for the individual needs of each pupil as they move through the school. We believe our task as teachers and support staff, is to enable all our pupils to reach their highest levels of personal achievement and independence.

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.

Children get into the school from here:

regularly
most years
quite often
infrequently
sometimes, but not in this year
