Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
Our overarching principle at Leigh St Peter’s is one of inclusion, where we focus on the well-being and progress of every child and where all members of our community are valued. All children have access to a broad and balanced curriculum, which meets their social and learning needs. We aim for all pupils, including those with Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) to: achieve their best, become confident individuals living fulfilling lives and make a successful transition into adulthood.
What are Special Educational Needs?
According to the SEND Code of Practice: 0-25 years (2014), special educational provision means: Educational provision which is ”different from or additional to” that normally available to pupils or students of the same age, which is designed to help children and young people with SEN or disabilities to access the National Curriculum at school or to study at college.
Our policy is to identify specific difficulties at an early age and work alongside parents to ensure that children’s needs are being met.
