At Kingsthorne we make every effort to welcome and include every child. We want the child to be happy especially about coming to school and recognise that every child is unique.
Some children might have additional needs and these are referred to as SEND (Special Educational Needs or Disabilities), which calls for special provision to be made, a provision that is different from or additional to that usually available to pupils of the same age.
For full information of how Kingsthorne supports children with SEND, please click on the links to the School SEND Information Report and the Accessibility Policy. There are also links to the Birmingham Local Offer Website and other useful links for parents.
