SEND & Vulnerable Learners

Our School SEND leader and Pupil Premium leader is Mrs Jill Kelsey, who is in school on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

Special Educational Needs (SEN)

In order to help children who have special educational needs, a graduated response is adopted which encompasses an array of strategies. This approach recognises that there are a variety of special educational needs and, where necessary, brings increasing specialist expertise to support the difficulties that a child may be experiencing. Staff will make full use of all available classroom and school resources before calling upon outside resources. The full use of classroom and school resources is best described as quality first teaching, this also includes receiving support through 1:1 or small group interventions.

Some children may need more specific interventions. A plan will be put in place with outcomes, provision and expectations that are agreed between the class teacher, parent/carers and child.

In accordance with the Code of Practice, we have published our SEND Policy and SEND Information report below.

Disability Access Policy

Sutton Benger School aspires to be sensitive to the needs of every child, reducing barriers to learning and making the curriculum accessible to every student.  

Reasonable adjustments to physical and other arrangements of the school are considered where necessary, taking into account the nature of any impairment, pupil and parent views and advice from teachers and other professionals.  

Prospective parents are asked to inform the school of any disabilities or additional needs their children may have when registering.   Continuing communication between parents and staff is vital to ensure that reasonable adjustments can be considered where necessary, whether impairments were apparent when the student entered the school or developed at a later stage.
