From September 2014, all schools are expected to publish information about their provision for special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).
This includes the ‘Local Offer’, which helps parents/carers understand what services they and their families can expect from a range of local agencies. It should help them understand how the system works, and how the local authority, local area and the school will support both the child and the family
You can read details of our special needs provision and local offer below:
Birmingham’s Local Offer
The Birmingham Local Offer website includes information about the wide range of services that are available to support all areas of a child’s life (0 to 25 years) especially those with a Special Educational Need or Disability (SEND).
This includes support with education, physical and mental health, social care, leisure activities and moving towards independence and adulthood.
Bordesley Green Primary school welcomes pupils, parents and visitors with disabilities. We endeavour to ensure that disabled pupils are fully integrated into the life of the school. Within the limitations of financial constraints we will provide facilities and resources for children with specific physical needs so they can join in the full range of educational and social activities.
We have the following facilities available for pupils, parents or visitors with disabilities:
- A portable ramp to support wheelchair access
- Two toilets equipped for wheelchair access
- Visible fire alarms for hard of hearing (in parts of the school)
- A variety of ceilings lowered with sound proof tiles to support children with a hearing impairment.
Our Sports Hall is also fully accessible for assemblies, workshops and parent review meetings.
For future plans to improve the access to our site further, please view our Accessibility Plan.
If you have any questions or need further information regarding disabled access within the school premises, please do not hesitate to contact the school office.
For children with SEND to be the heart of the school, to receive a high-quality, individualised education which ensures they achieve their full potential. Being excited and engaged so they understand, to learn and remember by having purposeful experiences which enable them to gain confidence and see themselves as learners, preparing them for their next part of their journey.
We will continue to develop and maintain a positive parental partnership which supports children with SEND and their families. Keeping communication frequent, open and honest.
All staff will understand their responsibility for the care and education of children with SEND including the support, the identification, use of strategies, individualised planning and teaching to empower the child to flourish and reveal their full capabilities.
