Letter from David Laws MP - Regarding Disadvantaged Pupils


Parent Leaflet


"I have worked closely with staff at Benton Dene Primary School for several years in order to support their children with SENDs. Staff at Benton Dene Primary School put their children first with inclusion as a priority. Aside from quality first teaching, they offer a wide range of evidence based interventions provided by highly skilled and experienced practitioners. Children with SENDs are valued, cared for and nurtured. They are included at a whole school level which filters down to the experience of every child in their setting."
