This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the annual School Census.

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The criteria in which schools use to allocate places in the event that they are oversubscribed can and do vary between schools and over time. These criteria can include distance from the school and sometimes specific catchment areas but can also include, amongst others, priority for siblings, children of a particular faith or specific feeder schools. Living in an area where children have previously attended a school does not guarantee admission to the school in future years. Always check with the school’s own admission authority for the current admission arrangements.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our school catchment area guide for more information on heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the annual School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.

School Description

Churchill Park School caters for pupils with moderate learning difficulties, severe learning difficulties, profound and multiple learning difficulties and autistic spectrum disorders. In addition, some pupils have hearing impairment, visual impairment and complex medical needs. It is the only special school in West Norfolk In March 2014 a new headteacher was appointed and was employed for two days a week before taking up the full-time position in September 2014. He is the fourth appointment since the school opened in 2009 following the amalgamation of two existing, but very separate, local special schools. The headteacher was involved in the appointment of a number of new teaching staff who started at the school in September 2014. This included the appointment of two assistant headteachers to strengthen the new senior leadership team. All pupils have a statement of special educational needs or are in the process of having an education health and care plan drawn up. The early years provision is full time. Children in Reception class share their education with older pupils in Years 1 and 2. An above-average proportion of disadvantaged pupils are supported through the pupil premium, which is additional government funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and looked-after children. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds, including those from families where English is an additional language, are below average. These pupils are represented across all of the different disability and special educational needs groups in the school. Some students attend the Open Road Centre to gain qualifications in motor vehicle maintenance. The school is part of Trust Norfolk SEN, which is a cooperative involving all special schools in the county. The Trust operates school-to-school support which facilitates consultancy advice and support for staff working with children and young people with special educational needs in mainstream schools. Churchill School is also a partner in the Encompass Teaching School Alliance and works in close collaboration with other mainstream and special schools.
