Special Education Needs

Bennerley Fields School provides day education for pupils between 2 and 16 years old. The school is divided into three departments: the diagnostic and assessment nursery, the junior and senior school. Pupils assessed in the nursery subsequently attend a variety of schools at the age of 5 years. We cater for pupils with moderate and severe learning difficulties including Autism, speech and language difficulties, visual and/or hearing impairment and BESD. Assessment of a wide range of complex needs takes place in the nursery, particularly language and communication. The school provides the full national curriculum including the foundation stage and has recently received a School Achievement Award for standards achieved. The school has the Basic Skills Quality Mark award which acknowledges the good core curriculum. The Derbyshire Anti-Bullying Commitment award confirmed the school's good practice, which Ofsted praised. Senior pupils work towards externally accredited schemes, achieving very good results; the school is one of a few special schools nationally to be Careermark accredited. Pupils leave the school at the end of Key Stage 4 and go on to a range of further education or work related opportunities. The school prioritises the five key themes in Every Child Matters; furthering these also in initiatives such as Health Promoting Schools and the schools award scheme. In 2006 Ofsted said: 'Bennerley Fields is a good school where the pupils find learning very enjoyable'. We are an Investor in People school.
