At Benjamin Adlard we are committed to supporting all learners to achieve their very best. Please look at the information below, for how we support children with Special Educational Needs.

At Benjamin Adlard Primary School we are “Creating a haven in which children flourish”; the word children means all children regardless of ethnicity, background, needs or disabilities. This information has been co-produced with parents and carers and has taken into consideration the views of the children in the school. As such we have aimed to answer some common questions raised. Please download the attached guide to read the answers to these common questions:
