Special Educational Needs

Cockshutt School is a small rural school, which also has Nursery provision. We are an inclusive school and we welcome all children regardless of need. We pride ourselves on knowing our children well and providing the personal care each individual child needs. Children with Special Needs are supported as appropriate to their needs.  This may mean teachers modifying their teaching to match the needs of your child; your child being supported in a small group, an intervention programme put into place to help with an area of the curriculum your child is struggling with or possibly 1:1 support, depending on the needs of your child.

We have 4 classes and our governors aim to keep class sizes small where possible which enables teachers to know their children well and have the time to support them effectively. We all work well as a team and all staff will be aware of the needs of children with SEN.  Mrs Dawson, the headteaher, is also the school SENCo and as such has a good understanding of the needs of each child and regularly monitors progress, attainment and the quality of teaching and behaviour to ensure all children have the support they need to reach their full potential and equip them with the skills they need to move onto the next stage of their education and adult life.
