Special Educational Needs (SEN)

At Woodcock Hill we employ many strategies to support our pupils and families with a wide range of physical, emotional and mental Special Educational Needs. We are committed to keeping pupils in mainstream education wherever possible and our processes ensure we assess and monitor abilities regularly and set realistic, achievable goals for all concerned



Every child who has a place in school must attend as much as they are able to. Our target is to have an attendance of above 96.0%. We employ strategies to help support parents/guardians and children to improve attendance.



Each Junior class has homework set weekly



We try to ensure that parents/guardians are aware of how to keep their children safe whilst online. If you need any advice about this please ask at the School Office.

Help in a short-term crisis

Birmingham's Local Welfare Provision (LWP) scheme helps vulnerable people in short-term crisis with food and essential items. It is grant-based, which means people who receive help from it will not have to repay anything. It is not intended to replace the councils statutory duties.

The scheme is funded on an annual basis and once the fund has been exhausted for that financial year, there will be no further awards.

The scheme is purely discretionary and people have no statutory right to an award.

For more details on how the scheme is operated, look at the Local Welfare Provision policy.

The Council's Benefit Service administers the Local Welfare Provision payments that enable the Council to provide financial support for vulnerable people in the city who find themselves in financial crisis.

There are 2 types of payment made from this provision:

  • Crisis payments are made to citizens to meet their needs for subsistence in terms of essential food and/or clothing.
  • Community Support Grants are paid to citizens to meet their immediate needs for essential furniture or white goods to sustain their housing needs and to gain greater independence within the community.
