Welcome to

Cockton Hill Junior School

  1. SEND


At Cockton Hill Junior 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 SEND Information Report (SIR) 2023-2024 provides details of how we support children with SEND and their families.

What is the Local Authority Local Offer?                                                           

From September 2014 Local Authorities (LA) and schools are required to publish and keep under review information about services they expect to be available for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) aged 0-25. This is called the Local Offer.

The intention of the Local Offer is to improve choice for families and will also be an important resource for parents in understanding the range of services and provision within school and within the local area.

The County Durham Local Offer can be found here.

The full range of local support available for children and young people with SEND and their families within and outside of school can be found here.

SENDIASS is an SEND information, advice and support service for parents, carers and families of children and young people with SEND.


The following are the main contacts for SEND at Cockton Hill Junior School:

Mrs Rachel Lambert is the designated Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinator (SENDCo).
Mrs Jill Cooper is the Head Teacher.
Miss Emma Reed is our designated SEND Governor.

If you would like to discuss your child’s needs in more detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment or via email at  c.h.j@durhamlearning.net.
