Awarded a £1,000 grant

Northcott School

Katherine Johnson, headteacher at Northcott School, said:

"Northcott School are thrilled to have been awarded a grant from the KCOM community grants scheme.

"Our school community has communication and interaction needs and can experience sensory issues. This grant will allow us to transform a space to provide essential sensory equipment and outdoor learning opportunities.

"We are very grateful of the support of companies like KCOM who allow schools to provide additional resources and experiences for our pupils.”

Northcott School is a special educational needs school. We cater for children aged from 5-16. We currently have 135 children on role.

The school is predominantly a social communication and interaction school with a high majority of pupils on the autistic spectrum with additional sensory needs.

Please outline how the KCOM Community Grant will be used

  • We have a large number of children with sensory needs and we would like to be able to cater for all their sensory needs. We’re hoping to buy some outdoor music stations and textile walls. We would use the grant to purchase some new outdoor sensory equipment to support the pupils’ needs.

      We ideally would like a music station and a sensory textile wall. We would also like to replace some well used indoor sensory equipment to enhance the experience we can offer our children. For indoors we also need to replace some well-used equipment.

Which members of the community would benefit from the grant?

Pupils from Northcott school would benefit as they would be able to have their sensory needs met. Our outreach team also shares good practice across Hull enabling other schools and organisations to improve their provision for children with special educational needs.
