Celebrating the success and achievements of everyone in our community


Pastoral Team

At Benton Park, we have a number of strands of support that children and families can access during their time with us. The team- and its deployment - is led by Mr. Nick Shepherd (Deputy Head Teacher) and Mrs Sarah Pay (Assistant Head Teacher and SENDCO).

The team has grown in recent years as a reflection of increasing need within society. You can hear from some of the team members below!
