Overview

Proposal to Lower the Age Limit of a Community Special School and Increase the Number of Places:

Lindsworth School is a community special school located in the Brandwood ward of the Selly Oak district. 

The School is currently commissioned for up to 113 places for pupils, from age 11 to 16, who have a statement of need or an Education and Health Care Plan for Social, Emotional and Mental health needs (SEMH).

Lindsworth School is federated with Springfield House School in Knowle.

Birmingham City Council, as the local authority for Birmingham, is consulting on a proposal to make certain changes to Lindsworth School.  These changes are:

  • Change the lower age limit from 11 years to 9 years.
  • The current age range is 11 -16 years the proposed age range is 9 -16 years. This will mean the school will be able to educate children across year 5 - year 11.
  • Increase the number of pupils from up to 113, to, up to 138.
