Hello and welcome to Sheffield Springs Academy. I am the SENCo, Mrs Benson, and I hope to ease any anxieties and worries that you may have about starting secondary school, as well as embrace your excitement for a new adventure that lies ahead of you.
We have a wonderful SEND team at Springs who are all excited to meet you. We are based in the Bridge which is on B Floor and directly outside the main hall. We are open before school as well as break and lunch times every day. I hope you pop in to see us! If you are unsure of where to go, just ask any member of staff and they will direct you to us. We have a wonderful community in the Bridge, it’s a safe place where staff can check in with you, as well as help and support you with making and maintaining friendships. You will often find us playing games and having “Music Fridays”. We embrace all of the unique and wonderful characters that visit us and are always excited when somebody new joins the group.
I will work very closely with your class teachers to ensure they support you in the way that helps you to learn best. We create one page profiles for your teachers, and together, we will update these to make sure the information that we are giving them is accurate, relevant and helpful to your progress and learning.
If you have any issues or concerns, please come and find me or a member of the team. We’re really looking forward to meeting you!
