Inclusion

SEND

At Bessemer, we aim to ensure that all children are happy, secure individuals who achieve their full potential in all areas of learning. For most children this will simply mean being the recipient of good quality whole-class teaching. For others there will be a need for additional small group work for short periods of time. For some children intervention may be ongoing, very specific and delivered on a one-to-one basis.

The range of support

The range of support deployed will be tailored to individual need, following thorough assessment by internal or external agencies. It is designed to promote pupils working towards becoming independent, courageous, resilient and ambitious learners. Support Staff receive training in particular interventions and lead on small group or one-to-one sessions. Class teachers also received training and specialist input to meet the needs of individual children. This support reflects the commitment of our school to meet the needs of all our children.
