Frederick Gent School is an inclusive school.  We believe that all students are entitled to an outstanding education and try to ensure that individual needs are met and barriers to learning are removed.  

Frederick Gent School fully endorses the SEND Code of Practice (2014) core principles. All children and young people are entitled to an education that enables them to make progress so that they: 

  • Achieve their best 
  • Become confident individuals living fulfilling lives 
  • Make a successful transition into adulthood, whether into employment, further or higher education or training 

Our Special Educational Needs provision is led by Dawn Steel (SENDCO) who can be contacted on 01773 811737 or email:

Equity versus Equality 

All students have different strengths and needs.  At Frederick Gent School, we ensure that support is tailored so that everyone can succeed.  We recognise that people, situations and circumstances often need to be treated individually ensuring that all students are ready to learn, can access the curriculum and can make outstanding progress
