The John Bentley School

An Outstanding Centre For Learning


Welcome to the Support Department

The aim of the support department is for each pupil to realise his/her potential within an enriched, inclusive community. We aim to achieve this by providing an outstanding service for pupils who have special educational needs.

The SENCO along with the support team are responsible for the day to day operation of the SEND policy. We will coordinate the extra support and provision for pupils with a range of specialist needs.

We also work closely with teaching staff to ensure that they have access to personalised strategies and can build their knowledge of SEND to enable those with specific needs to flourish, alongside their peers.

An integral part of our department is working with parents and outside agencies. We thrive on building and sustaining a positive working relationship with parents of pupils with SEND as this is known to enable them to achieve academic success. We warmly welcome parental involvement throughout their child’s time at school.

If you would like to know more about the support that your child will receive as a John Bentley pupil, please contact Mrs Johnson, SENCO.
