What Is Inclusion?
At Benson, we all work to create an environment where all children feel welcome, accepted, valued, safe and confident that they will get the right support to help develop their talent and achieve their goals. We work hard to help remove barriers to learning, to give each child the chance to reach their full potential. Successful inclusive provision is seen as the responsibility of the whole school community and is applicable to all pupils.
Inclusion Manager/ SENCO: Ms Beer

The school works closely with outside agencies to gain additional support and advice for children who may need it. When staff and/or parents raise concerns, it may be necessary to consult specific agencies.
