At Holywell Primary School, we are all here to help! We operate an open-door policy and you are welcome to come into school anytime, to discuss any concerns or questions you might have about your child.
Miss Evans is the school SENDCO (Special Educational Needs and Disability Co-ordinator). She works with children, teachers, parents/ carers and outside agencies to ensure that our pupil’s needs are met. If you would like to contact Miss Evans, you can arrange a meeting through the school office or email her on firstname.lastname@example.org

Holywell Primary and Nursery School is a Worcestershire school, however it is very close to the Birmingham border, therefore our catchment is made up of Worcestershire and Birmingham children. Support that is provided in school comes from Worcestershire, but any referrals for health services are sent to your ‘home’ authority. Miss Evans is able to complete referrals for both Worcestershire and Birmingham services. Links to the Local Offers from both authorities are below.

We work very closely with a range of other professionals in order to help meet the needs of your child. Please click on the appropriate links below to find out more.
For any concerns about your child you should always contact your child’s class teacher first. We believe that the closer we work together the more successful any help will be. Many problems can be sorted out easily by matching the level of help to the needs of the child, with specific support. Sometimes it is felt that a child needs a particular kind of help, in which case the help of specialists from outside school may be valuable.
Should you remain concerned that you can contact our SENDCO, Miss Beckie Evans via the school office or emailing email@example.com
