An Inclusive School
Together, we learn better.
In the SEND Code of Practice (2015) it states that:
‘All teachers are teachers of pupils with special educational needs.’
The University of Birmingham School is an inclusive school that delivers Quality First Teaching by subject staff who have a keen awareness of a range of special educational needs, medical needs and disability. Parents/Carers are a vital part of our inclusive practice and we always seek to work as a cohesive team: young person, parents, staff.
Our SEND/Inclusion Team
Our subject staff are supported to achieve the aims of the SEND Code of Practice by our Inclusion team:
- Miss K Poulton – Assistant Vice Principal (Inclusion & SENDCO).
- Mr L Beddow – Assistant SENDCO.
- Mr D Hale – Learning Coach (Communication & Interaction).
- Miss A Kyriacou – Learning Coach (Social, Emotional, & Mental Health, including ADHD).
Any parent or carer with queries can contact the School’s SENDCO, Miss Poulton by emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling her via the main School number on 0121 796 5000.
