Welcome to the CoIN Centre

In the CoIN Centre, we offer students with communication and interaction needs (CoIN) provision to help them achieve their potential academically and socially. The Centre at Therfield is for students designated 'low CoIN' at the year 5 forums (meetings attended by a range who professionals who read the students' paperwork and agree which level of provision each requires).

A full definition of low CoIN can be found in Educational provision for Children and Young people with SEND:

The students all have an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) and have a range of difficulties which might include problems with understanding language and expressing themselves, social interaction, literacy and numeracy. Some students have a diagnosis of autistic spectrum disorder (ASD).

 

The staff in the CoIN Centre offer students:

  • Support in a majority of lessons from the teaching assistants or the Head of Centre.
  • Withdrawal lessons in small groups to offer additional support in subjects such as maths, english and science.
  • One-to-one tuition to tackle individual difficulties.
  • Option support in Years 10 and 11.
  • Speech and language therapy weekly in small groups with additional 1:1 as required.
  • Extensive resources, including computer software to help with specific learning problems.
  • Optional homework club to ensure students do not struggle with the workload.
  • A school experience that is tailored, as far as possible, to meet each student’s particular needs.
  • Access to vocational courses in Year 10 and 11.
  • Help with skills needed for independence including travel on public transport and completing college application forms.
  • Support for involvement in extra-curricular activities such as Duke of Edinburgh Award and school trips.
