SEN and Disability
All children are welcomed to St Peter’s School where they are valued and respected. We pride ourselves upon being an inclusive school, offering all children opportunities to grow spiritually, socially, emotionally and academically. We are aware that some children will require extra support whilst at school and aim to provide this for them. In some cases this will only be for a short time but in other instances their needs will be ongoing.
All of our class teachers are teachers of children with Special Educational Needs but are also supported by Mrs Towsey, our SENCO (Special educational needs co-ordinator). She is a qualified teacher, a member of the Senior Leadership Team and has received the National Award for SEN Co-ordination. If you have any concerns and would like to speak to Mrs Towsey she can be contacted on 01795 423479 or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org . Mrs Towsey is often supported with her work by our school dog, Shadow, who is already supporting some of our children emotionally.
There is a statutory duty to monitor SEN by the Governing Body. Hayley Kingsnorth is the SEN Governor.
