Special Educational Needs (SEN)
Welcome to the SEN page
As our policy states:
At Oliver’s Battery Primary School, we are committed to working towards the provision of the highest quality education for all our pupils, regardless of specific need. All schools are supported to be inclusive of all pupils and the early identification of additional needs is paramount in ensuring the best possible progress for all pupils.
We promote a whole school approach to the delivery of SEN, supporting the core values of the school within a fully inclusive ethos and developing a high quality provision that meets the special educational needs of all children, enabling them to make academic progress in line with their peers.

The Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo) at Oliver’s Battery Primary School is Mrs Vicky Cocks, tel: 01962 869496.
Hello, my name is Vicky Cocks and I am the SENCo for the school.
I trained as a teacher at King Alfred’s College, Winchester, which is now known as The University of Winchester. I studied teaching (ages 4-11) and history, achieving a BA (Hons) QTS (qualified teacher status) with History. I have over a decade of teaching experience across both Key Stages, mostly in Key Stage One. In 2013 I achieved the National Award in Special Educational Needs Co-Ordination.
My role, as SENCo, is ensuring children with special educational needs access the curriculum and make good progress. I work closely with class teachers and outside agencies to meet the needs of children with additional needs. Whilst the first port of call for any query or problem arising is your child’s class teacher, I am found in the Rainbow Room or easily contacted through the school office, for further and more in depth discussions.
Look forward to meeting with you.
