News update: The Local Authority is about to start formally consulting on our expansion to take more children across our two sites.
Brays School now has two sites, one in Sheldon and the other in Tile Cross.
The site in Sheldon is a day special school with 110 places for pupils with physical, learning and additional difficulties. All pupils currently on role have a statement of special educational need. The school place offer and build was extended to meet demand in 2005. Brays takes children with physical needs, severe learning difficulties, profound and multiple learning difficulties, autistic spectrum disorder, specific communication and learning needs, visual impairment and hearing impairment.
At Brays School the Staff and Children promote and practice British Values across the curriculum and in all we do every day as part of our immersion in the principles set out in the Birmingham Curriculum Statement. (To view full document, please click here)
Children attending Brays will usually require augmented and modified curriculum opportunities including an overarching mobility curriculum and a sensory experiential curriculum for our more profound learners. Brays School underpins all of its curriculum delivery through continually developing its communication work so that pupils may access their learning in a way personalised to their needs.
Brays has a wider national remit and works with professionals across England and beyond through its varying roles - as a National Teaching School (please visit www.btssa.org), a National Support School and a National School of Creativity. Brays also holds a service level agreement with Birmingham Local Authority to provide support to professionals and children and young people with physical difficulties across mainstream provision in the city.
Brays has many accolades which we are very proud of and reflect our commitment to high quality teaching and learning, a caring and supportive learning environment for our pupils and a community aware and engaged provision.
I hope that this website will provide you with information that helps you. To get in touch with us, please click here.
