At Bournville Junior School, we are committed to working in partnership with parents/carers and children, to meet the needs of all children with special educational needs and disabilities. We offer many opportunities for parents/carers to be involved in their child’s learning, such as workshops, parents’ evenings and parent meetings.
Who can I talk to if I have concerns or questions about my child’s needs or learning?
We operate an open door policy and you are welcome to come into school to share any concerns or questions you may have about your child.
In the first instance, please arrange to see your child’s class teacher, preferably at the end of the school day, when he/she will have more time to discuss any concerns.
Your child’s class teacher is responsible for:
Your child’s class teacher may direct you to the school SENDCo, Mrs Woodall.
If you would like a meeting with our SENDCo you can contact her directly on SEN@bnvillej.bham.sch.uk or by contacting the school office.
As SENDCo, Mrs Woodall is responsible for:
If your child has a special educational need or disability and/or requires additional provision over time in order to make progress, we may meet with you to decide if it is appropriate to create a Pupil Profile for them.
This is a plan of their targets, strategies for support and additional interventions.
We hold termly pupil profile reviews (usually just prior to parents’ evening). These are attended by your child’s class teacher and the SENDCo, to review your child’s progress towards their targets and gain your input on their new targets. Pupils are also involved in reviewing their Pupil Profile targets, sharing their views of the targets and their progress towards them prior to the meeting. However, whenever possible, pupils also attend their review meetings.
Education, Health and Care Plans
If your child has an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHC Plan), please see this section for further details.
