Additional Needs

At Coppice Farm Primary we have a nurturing and experienced team of staff who support children who may have needs that are additional to or different from their peers.  These additional needs may include: cognition and learning, sensory, emotional and behavioural, communication and interaction, speech and language, medical or physical. 

We are an inclusive school and strive to create an environment where all children can thrive and develop alongside their peers.  We meet the additional needs of our pupils by working closely with parents and a range of outside agencies.  Support for children with additional needs at Coppice Farm is given in a wide variety of ways, tailored to each child’s individual needs.  We have a dedicated and hard-working team of TAs who work closely with the teachers to support pupils within class as well as running a wide range of targeted interventions. We have regular staff and individual training on a range of SEN to ensure we keep our knowledge and skills up to date.

 Our SENCOs are Mrs Davies (KS1)  and Miss Hempstead (KS2) who work together to oversee the SEN provision in the school and liaise with outside agencies such as: the Speech and Language Team, Geding Area Partnership (Behaviour Support), Cognition and Learning Support (SFSS), Educational Psychologist Team, Healthy Families (School Nurse).
