What The Good Schools Guide says
Since 2010, Ms Verity Coates MA PGCE (40s). She has been in various roles at Belmont since 1996, including deputy head from 2005. She graduated with a degree in mathematics from Newnham College, Cambridge in 1987 and after a PGCE at York and a brief spell at a London primary school she worked abroad in Africa. On returning to England in the mid 90s, she started as a class teacher and SEN coordinator at Belmont and is fiercely loyal to the school.
Keen to press her commitment to state education, she appeared anxious about Belmont being perceived as the middle class answer to independent schooling.

Special Education Needs
Belmont is able to offer a range of learning support to its pupils who have special educational needs. The special educational needs coordinator (SENCO) oversees the provision: each child has an individual education plan, which is reviewed regularly with parents and others involved in the child's education. The SENCO and specialist reading recovery trained teacher provide focused support for individuals and groups, where this is identified as appropriate. In addition, a team of trained classroom assistants work alongside the teaching staff to provide support. This enables children with SEN to be taught in smaller, more focused groups, generally within the class setting, and also makes it possible for them to receive some individualised support, when particular programmes are indicated. The school makes use of external services which are able to help by providing advice, assessment or support, where this is relevant for an individual. Belmont is well resourced with materials to promote learning. Good communication with parents is fostered so that home and school are able to work in partnership to support a child and meet his or her needs effectively.
