Mayor visits Caslon Primary Community School and early years inclusion hub

The Mayor of Dudley called into a Halesowen primary school which has also recently opened a new inclusion hub facility.

The Mayor saw the school in action and all the hard work of the staff and children which make it a true community school. The Mayor stopped by each classroom in turn to meet the children and learn about what they were doing.

She also visited their Beech Tree base attached to the school which hosts 14 children from across the borough who all have SEMH needs.

She also dropped into see one of the borough’s five new Early Years Inclusion hubs which offer specialist provision for children with additional needs. There are currently 4 children within the school’s main nursery using this service, whilst work on a new building is underway.

The hubs offer personalised, targeted and specialist interventions for children and families. The network of five hubs is designed to have a staffing capacity that meets the needs of children with special educational needs in localities across the borough. The Mayor of Dudley, Councillor Andrea Goddard, said:

“It was wonderful to meet the children and staff of Caslon Primary Community School. They were incredibly welcoming and really enthusiastic about their learning.

“It was also great to see the work of the Beech Tree service and the new Early Years Inclusion hubs which both help to support children with additional needs.”

Lynnette Holden-Gough, Headteacher at Caslon Primary Community School added: “It was an honour to welcome the Mayor of Dudley to Caslon Primary Community School.

"The children loved meeting her and showing her their work. It was a memorable morning for all involved.”
