Proposal to change the age range and increase pupil numbers at the specialist centre at William Cobbett Primary School

Closes 25 May 2018

Opened 30 Apr 2018


Surrey County Council in liaison with William Cobbett Primary School, is proposing to extend the age range of the specialist centre for pupils with Communication and Interaction Needs (COIN) in order to align the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) offer with the school age range. This means that the school would be able to accommodate pupils from Reception year who could then stay at the school until the end of year 6, if their needs are still able to be met by the school.

It is proposed that the number of places changes from the current total of 20 planned places (notionally 5 per year group in key stage 2 only) to 30 (notionally 2 per year group for key stage 1 and 6 per year group at key stage 2 to incorporate pupils from Badshot Lea specialist centre). This will enable the provision to remain sustainable and for it to match the age range of the rest of the school. These changes would come into effect from 1st September 2018.

Surrey County Council and the specialist centre at William Cobbett Primary School would like to seek your views on this proposal.  The consultation will open on 30th April 2018.

A public meeting is planned at William Cobbett Primary School on Monday 14th May 2018 at 2pm.

All are welcome to attend.
