Co-operative Trust statement regarding current Co-vid Crisis (May 2020)
We are proud to be part of the Birmingham Special School Trust. The Trust Schools are all open to those students of key workers and our most vulnerable.
All the Trust Schools are responding to emerging needs and are committed to supporting our students and families at this difficult time for us all. We all provide home learning and regular contact with families.
We are keeping up to date with Department for Education guidance and responding quickly to guidance.
We thank all our families for their support.
On behalf of the students, staff and governors, I would like to welcome you to Fox Hollies School. Fox Hollies is a Foundation Special School for students with severe learning difficulties and/or autism aged 11-19 years.
We are a small school for approximately 100 students and this allows us to maintain small class sizes with a high ratio of teachers and teaching assistants who get to know our students really well as individuals and personalise the learning for them.
At Fox Hollies, every individual is valued. We recognise that our students have many barriers to learning and so we aim to deliver a curriculum that offers motivation and purpose for each individual and builds on and celebrates each small step of progress.
Our curriculum is designed to give our students a breadth of quality learning experiences that enrich their lives, whilst also building on key communication, functional, social and life skills that will better equip them for life outside and beyond Fox Hollies. Our passion for the creative arts enhances our whole curriculum and our links with the local community offer real and relevant learning experiences beyond the classroom.
We work closely with parents, carers and a range of professionals to ensure that we meet the very diverse learning and communication needs of our students and support them to overcome or manage their barriers to learning.
We are proud of our unique school community and warmly welcome you to Fox Hollies.
