Special Educational Needs

Special Educational Needs Disabilities Co-ordinator (SENDCo)



My name is Emma Riley. I am the SENDCo here at Cooper and Jordan School. A role I love! I have been a SENDCO for over 10 years and am very passionate about supporting children with Special, Educational Needs and their families,  ensuring that all children receive a high-quality and ambitious education regardless of their need or disability. I believe that it is vital that our pupils are equipped with the tools needed to become independent, inquisitive learners both in and out of the classroom.

I am available in school each day, contactable by phone on 01922 743765 or email eriley@cooperjordan.walsall.sch.uk. I believe that working together, with strong communication links, children can thrive, no matter their need, at Cooper and Jordan School. I am supported by an amazing team of adults who share my passion in minimising barriers to learning and helping children succeed,

In my spare time, I enjoy dog walking, attending Yoga and watching my children play sport.

I am really fortunate to have an amazing team of staff who share my vision in supporting children with Special Educational Needs.
