Pupils are admitted to the school on receipt of an official request for placement from Birmingham City Council and provided that a suitable vacancy exists, admission can take place at any time in the school year.
Joining the School
Admissions are co-ordinated by Birmingham City Council, who are also responsible for determining the number of places available. Although placement usually results from a recommendation on a child's Education, Health and Care Plan, Birmingham City Council may request a placement as part of the ongoing assessment process. Children may be admitted at any time in the school year and arrangements to visit the school can be made by contacting the school.
The School Day
Regular school attendance is vital for ensuring continuity for all children. In the event of illness parents/carers must inform the school by telephoning on the morning of absence. If school is not aware of why a child is absent, then school will phone parents/carers during the first day.
Medication/Illness in School
If your child requires medication during the school day, it is important to ensure that adequate supplies are sent into school with a pharmacy label in place. A consent form will need to be signed and will require updating on a regular basis if there are any changes to medication. (Forms can be obtained from the school)
There is an official school uniform which we do expect pupils to wear. Our uniforms are chosen to be comfortable, practical, and appropriate.
School meals are available to all pupils, including those with special diets.
Parents/Carers can apply to their Local Authority for Home to School Transport. Those that are eligible are provided with information about the transport arrangement by the Local Authority. The school does not have any control over this arrangement including the pickup and drop off time. Concerns should be raised with the Local Authority.
