School Description

Bensham Manor is a larger than average special school which caters for students with a range of disabilities and special educational needs. All of the students have a statement of special educational needs. About 40% of the students have moderate learning difficulties and a similar, and increasing, proportion is on the autistic spectrum. The proportion of students eligible to be supported through the pupil premium (additional government funding for students known to be eligible for free school meals, children who are looked after by the local authority and the children of service families) is above average. There are no students from service families in the school. The students come from a range of ethnic backgrounds, reflecting the make up of the borough. About half are of White British heritage and about one fifth is from Black Caribbean or African heritages. Some students spend time in local mainstream colleges to follow vocational courses.
