At St Peters C of E Junior school we believe that everyone is of equal value: that all students have a right to equal opportunity and full access to the National Curriculum.
We will endeavour to assist all of our children in gaining support that they need to fulfil their potential.
Our provision takes into account our legal responsibilities, the regulations, code of practices and guidelines available, ensuring we comply where appropriate. 
The areas of need covered include:
  • Communication and Interaction: children with speech, language, communication and social interaction needs.
  • Cognition and Learning: children who have difficulty in learning.
  • Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties: children with mental health issues, who have difficulty managing their emotions and feelings, or their behaviour.
  • Sensory and / or Physical: children with additional sensory, for example Multi sensory Impairment (MSI) or physical needs, including Visual Impairment (VI).
We are conscious that an individual child can have a range of needs that do not simply fall into the headings above, but could span across them. In ensuring we seek to meet those needs we work as a team, with the child, parents / carers and other specialists. This approach builds a network of support.
