Inclusion and Special Needs

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 children the chance to reach their full potential. Successful inclusive provision is seen as the responsibility of the whole school community and applicable to all pupils.
