Special Education Needs & Disability

Personal Development


I am Mrs Yates and I am the SENCo at King Edward VI Handsworth Grammar School for Boys.  I am a teacher of History and have previous experience as a SENCo.  I currently hold the National Award for SENCo’s which is a qualification all practicing SENCo’s must have.

Our vision for the young people who have a Special Educational Need or Disability is:

  • That they are able to thrive and reach their full potential during their time here at HGS.
  • That they feel well supported by reasonable adjustments to support their special educational needs.
  • Most importantly, that students leave HGS happy, with excellent outcomes and are able to contribute to the wider community.

King Edward VI Handsworth Grammar School for Boys remains committed to being an inclusive Grammar School, upholding the SEND Code of Practice (2014).

In order to ensure that we are continuously meeting the needs of our young people, we review and develop the current provision on a termly basis. This will be done in consultation with our students and parents/carers.

If you need to speak to myself then please get in touch.
