Student Support Centre
This provision ensures that all learners receive
the help and support they need to become highachieving,
well rounded individuals. It consists
of our Special Educational Needs Department
run by our SENCO Mrs Dudley. Within the
centre there is a literacy and numeracy catchup
teaching area and emotional and behaviour
support for students. The centre offers support
to students and parents both during and after
the school day.
Attitude to Learning
At Benton Park School we believe that the best
academic results are achieved when students
enjoy school life. We develop in our students
a sense of responsibility, self-discipline and a
respect for self, others and the environment. We
have high standards and expectations of our
students, who are expected to take responsibility
for their own actions and to show courtesy and
respect to staff, visitors and to one another.
The Form Tutor meets their form group every
day at registration, knows their students well
and is always willing to help if problems arise.
The Form Tutor will also see individuals on a
regular basis to discuss progress and encourage
them to achieve highly. They will also have a
good understanding of overall progress and
academic achievement. The Form Tutor will be
the first point of contact for parents.
The wearing of a school uniform encourages
students to have a sense of pride and belonging
as well as reinforcing our high standards.
