Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

At Copmanthorpe Primary School, we believe in providing ‘quality first’ teaching. Through using a range of teaching styles and setting differentiated learning objectives, we allow all children to access a curriculum matched to their own individual needs. Many steps are taken to meet children’s  needs, however for some children there are times when additional support may be needed to help them flourish.

Where some children may require a short intervention in order to boost them in a certain area, other children may need longer term support at school.   Children who require extra help, support, or other special provisions to allow them to use the same facilities as other children of the same age, are categorised as having a Special Educational Need or Disability (SEND).

Our Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENDCo) is Mrs Emma Wooldridge.

Our governor for SEND is Mrs Sarah Dawson.

Driver Youth Trust

Our school is working in collaboration with the Driver Youth Trust - a national charity dedicated to improving the life chances of children and young people, with a focus on those with literacy difficulties and who may have SEND. In collaboration between DYT, we have adopted the Drive for Literacy model that addresses the needs of those who struggle with literacy and may be dyslexic. Our school leadership, whole school and key staff (SEND/Literacy team) have access to Drive for Literacy workshops, resources and parent support and advice to ensure pupils with literacy difficulties are able to access the curriculum and experience success as learners. More information on this model, which includes useful information and free resources for parents and schools can be found at and on Twitter @DriverTrust.
