SEND and medical needs

Please visit our ‘Policies’ section for the SEN policies, report and Medical Needs.

At St Peter’s Primary, our underpinning ethos for all pupils, including those with SEND or Medical needs, is growing together in mind, body and spirit.  Therefore, we support and value the abilities of all our pupils and believe that all children should be given the best possible opportunity to reach their potential. We achieve this through having high expectations for our pupils and by teaching them the skills needed to become independent and to feel confident and empowered to manage their individual needs.

As a school, we endeavour to provide equal opportunities for every person in our care and a safe, fully equipped learning environment which caters for the needs of every child as an individual. Our teaching arrangements and strategies are fully inclusive. The majority of pupils will have their needs met through the normal classroom arrangements. We also have a Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) policy, which can be found on the school website.

We cater for pupils with additional needs under the four primary areas of need:

  • Cognition and Learning
  • Communication and Interaction
  • Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties
  • Sensory and/ or Physical Needs

Our SEND Governor is Louise McPhie. Her role is to monitor provision, teaching and learning and progress of children with SEND throughout the school.

Our SENDCo is Mrs Rose Barahona. She monitors and coordinates the assessment, identification, provision, tracking and intervention procedures implemented throughout the school and liaises with multi-agency support and parents/ carers. Rose may be contacted through the school office on 01395 443167 or by email  If she is not available, the office staff will take a message and she will endeavour to make contact as soon as she is able.
