Hello and welcome to



My name is Mrs Butcher and I am Cook Class Teacher. 

Please use the Home/School Diary and Target Tracker Book in order to stay in touch; you can also contact me at the school by telephone.


The Teaching Assistant Team are:

Miss Creasey and Ms McDonagh


In Cook class there are 11 students who each have their own individual workstation. We use lots of technology in our learning and love using the interactive whiteboard, iPads and laptops. We use a lot of symbols in class to help with communication and we all use the visual timetable which helps us keep track of our day!

We choose our rewards at the start of the day and work for them by earning tokens for good work and behaviour in class. Our rewards include Lego, puzzles, music, the Sensory Room and using iPads and other electric gadgets. We have also have full access to our shared sensory resources.

Within our Lifeskills curriculum we enjoy planning our cooking through choosing recipes, creating shopping lists and visiting the supermarket to purchase our ingredients before creating our masterpieces!  We join in with PE on Wednesdays and Fridays which includes hydrotherapy, swimming and cycling as well as more traditional P.E. activities.
