William Cobbett Primary School

The Woodland Centre

“The Woodland Centre is a safe and happy environment that provides good learning opportunities for children with a high level of need” (Ofsted December 2014)

The Woodland Centre is a Communication and Interaction Centre (HIGH COIN) at William Cobbett Primary School that caters for children on the Autistic Spectrum with communication and interaction difficulties. Children are allocated a space in the Centre through the Surrey County Council panel process.

We currently have 28 children who have varying communication and interaction needs which cover speech, language and communication, social, emotional and additional learning needs.  

The Centre consists of three classes: one mixed Early Years and Key Stage 1 class of six children and two Key Stage 2 classes, each with twelve children. It aims to provide a safe and engaging learning space and differentiated curriculum for those children that find it more challenging to access large group teaching.

Successful inclusion is a key aim and this takes different forms depending on the needs of the children. 

We aim to:

  • Provide a child-centred curriculum, embedding each child's EHCP targets throughout- social, emotional, academic, sensory and physical
  • Support each child to develop their communication skills
  • Support our pupils with the social skills needed for making friends
  • Develop independent learners
  • Help the children become active and valued members of the school community
  • Help the pupils to exceed expectations and meet their full potential
  • Support all pupils in partnership with parents and carers
