Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Offer

At Becontree Primary School every child matters. We aim to create a highly effective teaching and learning environment within a culture of challenge, nature and support. 


We encourage children to become effective communicators, active contributors, confident and ambitious individuals, responsible and caring citizens and successful and independent learners. This allows children to gain cultural capital in order to progress to the next stage of education and into adult life. 


We positively promote our school motto of 'Respecting One Another' towards each other, the environment and the wider community.

The Zen Den

The Zen Den is a provision set up to meet the complex learning needs for children with social and communication difficulties. The provision is in a nurturing environment which is designed to allow children to develop both academically and socially. 

As an inclusive school, we make sure that the children in the Zen Den are also part of the school community and that they are included and play an active role in school life. 

Children that are part of this provision spend time in the Zen Den but also in their classroom with their peers. This allows them to develop their confidence to join in and learn with their peers and provides them with excellent opportunities to access other areas of the curriculum. 

The provision is staffed by a Specialist Learning Support Assistant, Learning Support Assistant and is overseen by the SENCo. 

Every child in the Zen Den maximises their learning potential and we are exceptionally proud of their achievements.
