We always welcome feedback from schools that access our support and training. Please read on for a snapshot of this year's comments...

“This is an outstanding service. The staff are exceptional, the advice given is invaluable and they never fail to support the school, children and parents alike”

SENDCo / AHT, Yenton Primary School

“The ongoing support that we have received from the COBS team has been first class. It is joined up, thought provoking, informative and most importantly provides excellent support to our young people. We will definitely be using this service in the future”

AHT, Plantsbrook School

"We are a good school, with excellent SEND provision according to Ofsted, largely due to the training, support and ongoing development provided by the Behaviour Support Team.  They have led the adults to change; which in turn has led the pupils to a more positive and happier approach to behaviour across the school"

SENCO / Assistant Head Teacher, Beeches Junior School

“The work of COBS is invaluable to our school.  It is amazing to watch the transformation and the difference the mentoring is making in the lives of our young people”

Vice Principal, Ninestiles Academy

“By far one of the best presentations on behaviour strategies I have ever had, a really useful and practical session”

“Keep Calm and De-escalate” Erdington Academy

“I would definitely recommend this training to other colleagues who would benefit from the in-depth knowledge and delivery style that our COBS worker provided.”

“Autism Aware” Sladefield School

"Support from COBS is an important part of our provision. Our Outreach worker provides knowledgeable, timely advice for a variety of situations"

SENCo, Newhall Primary School

“Targeted pupil support, mentoring and intervention that has genuine impact”

Assistant Principal, Waverley School

"COBs are very much part of our team here at the Oaks and continue to provide valuable support to staff, children and parents"

SENCo / AHT, The Oaks Primary School

“Having access to a COBS worker in our school setting, is the most valuable intervention we can offer to some of our most vulnerable students. The strategic work that is carried out, is effective and the impact is measurable. Our COBS worker, truly understands the needs of our students and therefore is able to make outstanding progress with them. The flexible way of working with our students is much appreciated, as a SENCo the collaboration between COBS and School is both relevant and beneficial for all stakeholders” 

SENCO, John Willmott School

“The positive behaviour management training from COBS has encouraged me to engage in positive strategies when dealing with and speaking to children”

“Positive Behaviour Management” Timberley School

“An invaluable service that offers excellent advice to upskill staff and always helps us support our families and children”

Inclusion Manager, Yardley School

"Pupils have valued the professional input that COBS has provided to help them to make positive changes in their behaviour and attitudes to learning"

Headteacher, Aston Manor Academy

“COBS take a reflective approach, providing strategies that support whole class improvements in order to manage individual concerns.  This raises the capacity of the whole school in managing the needs of pupils, rather than being a reactionary response to a specific event or incident”

SENCo / AHT, Hillstone Primary School

"I have been very pleased with the support provided for our students. The relationship between the Outreach worker and the students has been extremely positive and I would have no hesitation in recommending this service to others. It has played a part in reducing the number of exclusions and improving student behaviour allowing them to successfully reintegrate to mainstream lessons successfully" 

AHT, Greenwood Academy

“The trainers were excellent, delivering the theoretical and practical elements of the course in a calm and positive manner at all times. Support was provided where necessary so that all staff were left feeling secure in the techniques demonstrated”

“Team Teach” Moseley Church of England Primary School
