School Description

This is a school specialising in the education of pupils with hearing impairments. All of the pupils have a statement of special educational needs and many are profoundly deaf. Pupils are admitted to the school at any point in their education and at different times during the school year. Their places at the school are funded by local authorities across England and Wales. There are small numbers of pupils in each key stage. Currently, there are no Year 5 or Year 10 pupils on roll. There are two children in their Reception year receiving full time early years provision. The sixth form currently has four students on roll. Other than in early years and the sixth form, most classes are organised into mixed year groups. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils supported through the pupil premium is well above average. Currently, all but four pupils of the 30 on roll are supported through the pupil premium. The pupil premium is additional funding for those pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those who are looked after by the local authority. Four pupils live at the school in residential accommodation registered as a children’s home. This was inspected at the same time and a separate inspection report will be published for this provision. The executive principal oversees the work of the Doncaster Deaf Trust including the school, the Communication Specialist College and the Little Learners Day Nursery. The college and nursery are inspected separately. The deputy headteacher leads and manages the school.

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 last School Census (released annually in July).

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 areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

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

  1. Look at our 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 last 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.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.
