SEN Report

“This page is part of the Local offer for Birmingham. Under the Children and Families Bill which became law in 2014, Local Authorities are required to publish, and keep under review, information about services that they expect to be available for children and young people with disabilities and Special Education Needs aged 0-25. This is called the Local Offer. The intention of the Local Offer is to improve choice and transparency for families. It will also be an important resource for professionals in understanding the range of services and provision in the local area.”

PARENT SUPPORT INVOLVEMENT/ LIAISON:

How do you involve/support the parents of children/YP with an SEND regarding identifying and meeting their needs. How do you communicate their progress and areas of difficulty?

Children with SEND and their parent and carers, work closely with the school SENCo and outside agencies. Individual Education Plans, referred to as Individual Teaching Plans within the school, (ITPs/EHCplans) are sent home and home/school contact books are in place where needed. We hold parents evenings in terms 1, 2 and 3, then provide a written report in term 3. Parents are invited in to school on ‘Parents Day’ each term.

How will the school prepare children with an SEND to join their next setting/school/college/stage of education or life?

We have carefully planned and structured transition programmes between key stages and between schools involving transition meetings/transition books/ ‘moving in’ and ‘moving up’ books and new school SENCO meetings, where children are leaving/entering  the school. Since we are an all through this is not a major issue.
