News update: The Local Authority has finished formally consulting on our expansion to take more children across our two sites. We anticipate that the agreement to now take 220 children will be finalised in May 2016
Brays School now has two sites, one in Sheldon and the other in Tile Cross.
Brays School is a special day school. All pupils currently on role have a statement of special educational needs or an Education Health and Care Plan. We offer places across our sites for children with physical difficulties, severe learning difficulties, profound and multiple learning difficulties, autistic spectrum condition, specific communication difficulties, visual impairment, hearing impairment and multisensory impairment.
Our site in Sheldon takes 112 children with physical needs, severe learning difficulties, profound and multiple learning difficulties, specific communication and learning needs, visual impairment and hearing impairment. Those with a combination of complex medical conditions and sensory level autism may also attend this site.
Our site in Tile Cross offers 80 primary places for pupils with the full range of autistic spectrum condition. This offer will expand further from September 2016 to offer 108 places.
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.
