Special Educational Needs

At St Peter’s Church of England First School we are committed to ensuring that all our children learn successfully. We recognise that it is the responsibility of all staff in school to contribute to the identification and support of children’s special needs.  The implementation of clear procedures for early identification and assessment, involvement of parents, systematic action and planning, appropriate record keeping and monitoring of needs are all critical to maximizing a child’s achievement.


Every child with SEN and disability has an entitlement to fulfil his/her optimum potential whilst at St Peter’s First School. This is achieved by ensuring the wellbeing of all pupils in relation to:  being healthy, staying safe, enjoying and achieving, making a positive contribution and achieving social and economic wellbeing.




We believe that:


  • All children, including those with SEN, should be valued equally and have their needs met
  • It is our responsibility to maximize the attainment and progress of all children in school
  • Provision for a child with SEN should match the nature of the need
  • Parents should be involved as partners throughout the process
  • An inclusive education should be provided
  • The views of the child should be sought and taken into account
