We would recommend you accompany your son/daughter on the bus journey that they would take to get to school. Try this on a few occasions, at different times of the day so your son/daughter can get used to the journey.

The school does not have its own Green Bus service, however there are Green Bus services available, that are linked to other KEVI schools which many of our pupils use. More information can be found here: https://www.thegreenbus.co.uk/bus_services/school/

 

7) How does KEVI HGS deal with issues of bullying?

KEVI HGS takes bullying very seriously. We believe every young person has the right to be safe in school. There are very rare cases of bullying. If there is an instance of bullying we recommend our students speak to any member of staff, who can then investigate the issue and deal with it accordingly.

 

8) My son/daughter has an additional need, how will KEVI HGS help my son/daughter?

The SENCo and Head of Year 7 will be liaising with all of our feeder primary schools to ensure we have as much information about your son/daughter before they get to us. We also work very closely with parents who are able to advise us on their son/daughter’s needs and strategies that have proved successful in the past.

If you have any queries about additional needs that your son/daughter might need support with please do not hesitate to contact the SENCo or Head of Year 7, Mrs T Saleem, tsaleem@handsworth.bham.sch.uk

 

9) What social distancing measures will be in place in September?

The arrangements for September in regard to COVID-19 safety will be confirmed later this Summer. It is too soon to say what will happen in September.
