At St Peter’s CE Primary we strive to support all children to enable them to achieve at school. In order to do this many steps are taken to support children through their learning journey. Quality teaching is vital; however, for some children there are occasions when further additional support may be needed to help them achieve their targets. In this area of our website, you should find all the information you need to support your child successfully with their learning.
Our SEND Policy explains in detail how we will support and make provision for children with special educational needs (SEND). It explains the roles and responsibilities of everyone involved in providing for children with SEND.
Please also see our Special Educational Needs & Disability Information Report
Our SENCo are Miss Clare Watkins (Mondays & Tuessdays) and Mrs Rachael McNamara (Wednesdays & Thrusdays). They can be contacted via the school office on 01273 492447 or firstname.lastname@example.org
