SEND and medical needs

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

St. Peter’s Church of England Primary School is a mainstream school of 297 children, plus a Nursery of 60. We support and value the abilities of all our pupils and believe that all children should be given the best possible opportunity to achieve their potential. We believe in growing together in mind, body and spirit.

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:

  1. Cognition and Learning
  2. Communication and Interaction
  3. Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties
  4. Sensory and/ or Physical Needs

We endeavour to use a variety of strategies to remove barriers to learning created by difficulties in these areas.

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

Our SENDCo is Mrs Amanda Fuller. 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. Amanda 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. Alternatively, the Headteacher will endeavour to help.
