SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS AND DISABILITIES

 

St. Peter's Catholic Primary School believes that all pupils should be respected and valued as per our own school values.

 

We strive to ensure that all pupils:

 

  • are happy, included and an important part of the school community
  • have a wide and balanced curriculum which is differentiated to meet individual needs
  • can learn and make progress according to their individual developmental trends
  • are assessed using appropriate assessment tools and guidelines
  • are able to recognise their strengths and talents to achieve success

 

In line with our Inclusion Policy, we will provide opportunities for all pupils whatever their age, gender, ethnicity, attainment and background.

 

We are part of the SEND locality network for East Grinstead, which is known as 'NEST'. We work collaboratively to meet the needs of our families and children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.

 

Information about West Sussex Local Offer which provides access to services throughout the county is available on their dedicated website.

 

We maintain links with outside agencies, and continue to develop the expertise of the school learning team in order to ensure that the child's needs are provided for. As a school we believe that all children have an entitlement to be included and access a broad and balanced curriculum.

 

The range of special educational needs and disabilities for which provision is made at the school:

 

  • Speech and Language – Speech sound issues and language and processing difficulties
