We are pleased to welcome you to the SEND page, at St Peter’s RC Primary School. 

The SENCO, in collaboration with the head teacher and governing body, plays a key role in determining the strategic development of the SEND policy and provision in the school in order to raise the achievement of children with SEND. At St. Peter’s, all teachers are teachers of children with SEND needs. All staff recognise the importance of identifying SEND early and making effective provision quickly. The identification and assessment of SEND is built into the school’s approach to monitoring the progress of all pupils.
