ABOUT US

WORKING TOGETHER TO ACHIEVE SUCCESS FOR ALL

Beaufort School is a community day special school for 87 primary aged children (3-11 years) with severe and complex learning difficulties. The school is situated four miles to the east of Birmingham City Centre. Pupils who come to Beaufort travel from various areas of the city on education transport.  We are committed to ensuring the best possible education for our pupils and maintain strong community links. We collaborate closely with our federated partner, Langley School and our co-located partner, Colebourne Primary School; working together to achieve success for all.

All children who attend Beaufort School have an Education, Health and Care Plan, which is issued following a full assessment involving a range of professionals. Referrals to the school are usually made through ‘SENAR’, the Special Educational Needs Assessment Service, but informal approaches to the school are welcomed. We are occasionally able to offer a limited number of ‘assessment’ places whilst the statementing or EHC assessment process is undertaken.

The school does not have a formal policy, as it is the LA that refers pupils to the school and determines the criteria for admission. The following steps are followed by the school:

· The LA send paperwork (EHCP/Statement) for pupils referred from the placement panel.

· The Head Teacher (delegated by the Governing Body) reads the paperwork and assesses the suitability of placement at Beaufort School.

· If the placement is likely to be suitable and further information is required an observation of the pupil is carried out, by the Head, DHT or AHT, in their current setting.

· The reply slip is sent back to the LA to say whether the school is able to offer a place or not. Places are only offered if there is a vacancy within the appropriate class.

· Parents are invited to visit the school if they have not already done so.

· If parents are happy with the placement then a formal offer of a place is made and parents are requested to complete and sign the relevant paperwork.

· The school keeps an admissions register with all information on. This is maintained by the Head and the Office manager.

· The Head and Deputy conduct all visits on the designated days.

· Office staff and the School Nurse will support parents in completing the relevant school paperwork.

Parents are welcome to visit the school at any stage during the process and even before the child has been referred to the placement panel, however no offer of a place can be made unless the above process has been followed.
