The Inclusion Team
Who are we?
The inclusion team at Minworth Junior and Infant School is Mrs Davies (SENDCo), Miss Jordan (Inclusion Leader and DSL) and Mrs Miller (Learning Mentor). We look after the inclusion needs of many of our children and families. In addition, Mrs Miller have up to date Designated Safeguarding Lead training and both 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.
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.
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.
