Parents and Carers

 

Overview

At Birmingham local authority, our aim is to work closely with parents and carers, together with your child’s early years setting, school or college, and other professionals, to achieve the best outcome for your child. 

As a parent or carer, your role is vital in helping us to provide the right support for your child throughout their education journey. 

This section of the Local Offer website explains the different ways you can be involved in your child's education. 

You can also find out about the different types of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), how we identify and assess SEND in Birmingham and the specialist support services that are available to support your child.
