At Nechells Primary E-Act academy we are passionate about ensuring that the learning environment is inclusive and meets the needs of all of our pupils. Careful consideration is given to the curriculum in order to maintain high aspirations and expectations for all learners whilst ensuring that the right support and scaffolding is in place so that success is achieved by all.
We have a strong focus on preparing pupils for new learning and do so through a range of strategies including formative assessment, pre-teaching and using our knowledge of each and every child when planning interventions to give opportunities for overlearning. Targeted interventions are chosen carefully to maximise impact on pupil progress.
We use our positive partnerships with external agencies effectively to ensure that the graduated response is followed consistently for all pupils and advice given from professionals is acted upon.
Inclusion is at the heart of everything we do at Nechells. We have a strong, experienced team who provide staff with regular CPD opportunities so that they can ensure that the curriculum on offer is appropriate and responsive to the needs of all learners.
Staff are approachable and care for the children and the community that we serve. Families are at the heart of SEND provision and the voice of each parent is highly valued and sought regularly throughout the year as we value them as partners in their child’s learning.
What is the SEND Information Report?
All Birmingham schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and are supported by a range of outside agencies and the Local Authority to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school.
For further information about the Birmingham ‘local offer’ for children with Special Educational Needs or disability (SEND) you can click here.
For further information about Birmingham City Council’s social care, education and family services information and advice, click here.
All schools are supported to be as inclusive as possible, with the needs of pupils with a Special Educational Need/s being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible, where families want this to happen.
The SENCO is available to meet with you to discuss your child’s progress or any concerns/worries you may have.
All information from outside professionals will be discussed with you with the person involved directly, or where this is not possible, in a report.
Homework will be adjusted as needed to your child’s individual needs.
A Home-School Communication book may be used to support communication with you, when this has been agreed to be useful for you and your child.
