School Description

The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website. St Martins is a secondary special school for pupils who have a wide range of special educational needs. These include moderate learning difficulties, severe learning difficulties, speech, language and communication needs, and social, emotional and mental health difficulties. A few pupils have physical difficulties. The increasing number of pupils with autistic spectrum disorder and complex needs are taught in the department known as Galaxy for a substantial part of their timetable. The vast majority of post-16 students are taught at the school’s provision known as Horizons, which is situated in the city centre. Students’ learning is centred on work Inspection report: St Martins School, 6–7 June 2017 Page 8 of 11 skills, work placements, functional skills and enterprise training. The school works with Derby College and the alternative provider, Junction 16, to provide practical experiences and a range of accreditation. All pupils are supported by a statement of special educational needs or an education, health and care plan. The school is located on the Derwent Campus, on the edge of Derby City, alongside a mainstream secondary academy. St Martins has very recently benefited from the addition of its own new reception area, enabling easy access and egress and providing a sense of ownership for staff and pupils. Over half of the pupils are eligible for the pupil premium funding. The school is a teaching school and founder member of the Derby Teaching Schools Alliance, and the headteacher is a national leader of education (NLE). The school benefits from collaboration within the alliance and provides support to mainstream and special schools.

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 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 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.

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