Welcome to our SEND Information Page. Hopefully you will find everything that you need.
At Cockton Hill Infants’ School we recognise that all pupils are entitled to a quality of provision that will enable them to achieve their potential. We believe in positive intervention, removing barriers to learning, raising expectations and levels of achievement and working in partnership with other agencies in order to provide a positive educational experience for all our pupils including those with a special educational need or disability.
Our school recognises there are particular groups of pupils whose circumstances require additional consideration by those who work with them to support their SEN.
At Cockton Hill Infants’ School we have appointed a Designated Teacher for Looked after Children who works closely with the SENCo to ensure all teachers in school understand the implication for those children who are looked after and have SEN.
At Cockton Hill Infant’s School we ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs make the best possible progress.
