The Inclusion Team

Who are we?

The inclusion team at Minworth Junior and Infant School is Mrs Corpe (Inclusion Lead), Mrs Davies (SENDCo) Mrs Deane (Learning Mentor) and Mrs Miller (Learning Mentor). We look after the inclusion needs of many of our children and families and have up to date Designated Safeguarding Lead training. Mrs Miller and Mrs Deane are non-class based and work closely with children in small groups and on a one-to-one basis.

What do we offer?

We provide a wide variety of support for our children; special educational needs support and advice as well as social and emotional support, for example, self-esteem and nurture groups. We pride ourselves in knowing our children and tailoring their support individually.

SEND

Our SEND information report and local offer for 2019 is below.

Safeguarding and Early Help

Our families are very important to us! We can provide support or signpost you to another agency for a range of different issues; emotional support, parenting support, housing and financial help. We can also offer an Early Help assessment if you require support in different areas.

If we have a concern about a child, we will in most cases, discuss with parents and carers first. Sometimes we contact children's services without consent from their carers if we feel that to do so, would put a child at risk of significant harm. Please see our safeguarding policy for more information.

Mental Health

 We have worked closely with Forward Thinking Birmingham on mental health issues. If you are worried about your child's mental health, then talk to us, or try the Pause drop in centre in Digbeth.

Minworth Stay and Play

Minworth Stay and Play is every Thursday morning from 9:15 am in the school hall, which we run with our wonderful parent helpers.
