Special Educational Needs and Disability

At some time during your child’s school life you may find that staff approach you to share information about your child’s learning which shows that he or she is not making the progress that would be expected. This is always a concern for parents, often because they are unsure how to help or what might happen next.

Our school always tries to support parents at such a time. Staff are always willing to answer your questions and offer guidance, reassurance and support.

Our school works closely with a number of external professionals and outside agencies. We have excellent support from Birmingham's Communication and Autism Team and from the Special Educational Needs Assessment and Review Service.

In 2013, we were asked if Genium, on behalf of the Autism Education Trust and Birmingham University, could film the good practice seen in our school to develop training materials across the country for the support of practitioners, parents and governors who work with children with autism.

Along with other settings evidence of our practice can be seen on the Autism Education Trust website in their Early Years section.

Medical Needs

We are able to support the medical needs of children in school through careful liaison with parents and health professionals.

Our staff are trained to administer medicines for allergies and asthma and conditions requiring inhalers. Staff are trained to support children with febrile convulsions and epilepsy.

We regret that staff cannot administer medicines except those prescribed by a doctor. All medicines should be in original containers with the pharmacist's label clearly visible.
