Our Graduated Approach
Where a pupil is identified as having SEN, schools should take action to remove barriers to learning and put effective special educational provision in place. This SEN support should take the form of a four-part cycle through which earlier decisions and actions are revisited, refined and revised with a growing understanding of the pupil’s needs and of what supports the pupil in making good progress and securing good outcomes. This is known as the graduated approach. It draws on more detailed approaches, more frequent review and more specialist expertise in successive cycles in order to match interventions to the SEN of children and young people.
The following flow chart explains our Graduated Approach:
Birmingham SEND Local Offer
The Birmingham Local Offer includes information about the wide range of services that are available to support all areas of a child’s life (0-25 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.
Every local authority in England has a duty to provide children and young people, (0-25 years) with support if they have Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities - this is known as the Local Offer. Every local authority has to publish what support is available on a website: this is called the Local Offer Website.
The information you should be able to find on a Local Offer Website includes:
- Sources of support, advice and information for children, young people and families including supporting groups and forums
- Special educational, health and social care provision for children and young people with SEN or disabilities
- Arrangements to identify and assess children and young people with SEN, including how an assessment can be requested
- Other educational provision for example, leisure activities, sports and arts provision
- Information about provision to assist in preparing children and young people for adulthood including post-16 education and training provision
- Arrangements for travel to and from school, post-16 institutions and early year providers
- Childcare, including suitable provision for disabled children and those with SEND
- Support available to young people in higher education, particularly the Disabled Students Allowance (DSA) and the process and timescales for making an application for DSA.
- Arrangements for resolving disagreements and medication, and details about making complaints.
SEND Code of Practice
This statutory code contains:
- details of legal requirements that all schools must follow without exception
- statutory guidance that all schools must follow by law unless there’s a good reason not to
Admission of Disabled Pupils
Our Admission Policy and Admission Arrangements are available in the Policies section of our school website. Normal admission arrangements will be followed for pupils with ‘SEN or Disabilities’
We endeavour to be a fully inclusive school. All of our children will be treated according to their needs in line with the school's ‘Equality Objectives Policy’. No pupil will be denied admission because of a protected characteristic.
We will take all steps reasonable steps possible to provide effective educational provision.
School Accessibility Plan
The school is addressing access for people with disabilities. Our Accessibility Plan identifies how we are increasing the access to the curriculum, the physical environment and improving the provision of information in alternative formats to pupils with disabilities.
