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.
Safeguarding pupils is the priority at The Bridge School. We aim to involve parents and carers in all decisions concerning their child but in certain circumstances it may be necessary to consult or make a direct referral to the Children’s Advice and Support Service (CASS) where to do otherwise could result in significant or increased risk of harm to a child. We shall also comply with any mandatory reporting responsibilities.
Special Educational Needs
View our SEND Local Offer and SEND Information Report.
The curriculum offer and wrap around support for our pupils is bespoke to their needs and abilities. Forward Education Trust will ensure that pupils experience a curriculum which is concrete (experiential), pictoral or abstract depending on need and through these modes using a wide range of resources to engage the learners.
Communications with Parents
The Bridge School prides itself on being a community that extends to parents/carers, families and beyond. We appreciate that many of our pupils live some distance from school and come to school on school transport.
EHCP (Education, Health and Care Plans) are reviewed once every year.
