SEND and Inclusion

SEN Disabilities and Inclusion

At St. Peter’s Church of England School, Heysham we aim to offer excellence and choice to all our children, whatever their ability or needs.  We have high expectations of all our children.  We aim to achieve these through the removal of barriers to learning and ensuring equal access to all opportunities.

We respect that all children:

• have different educational needs and aspirations
• require different strategies for learning
• acquire, assimilate and communicate information at different rates
• need a range of different teaching approaches and experiences

As part of the 'Children’s and Families Bill (2014)', schools are required to publish and keep under review information about services they expect to be available for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities aged between 0-25 years.

The Local Offer is to improve choice and transparency for families. The Local Offer must include information about the provision the local authority expects to be available for children and young people with special educational needs regardless of whether or not they have Education, Health and Care plans.

Our SENDCo is  Mrs Parker, Turnstone Class Teacher.  She can be contacted through the school office.  Her SEND day is Wednesday.
