Special Educational Needs and Disabilities 

SENCo - Miss L Whittingham

At St Peter's School we recognise the entitlement of all pupils to have access to a broad and balanced curriculum and range of learning experiences so that they can achieve their full potential

We are committed to inclusion whilst meeting individual needs; where necessary children will be supported in their learning; through individual and group learning programs, to meet their specific needs

We recognise the equal value and worth of all pupils and aim to provide equality of opportunity with appropriate support, so that all children make progress from their starting points

All staff work on specific targets as outlined in a child's SEND support plan. We are committed to narrowing the gap between SEND and non-SEND pupils.

Children's mental health is as important as their physical health, as a school we are working hard to support our children with their mental health. We have worry boxes in the classroom that support our pupils to share their concerns. We regularly talk about different aspects of health in worship. Please find below some documents that you might find useful particularly at this time. 


PCT is the not-for-profit Parent Carer Forum for Derby City. In short, they are a group of parent carers who have children with SEND. They offer a range of services to help improve the lives of children and people with SEND as well as helping their parent carers. They have a new weekly menu of events.

All of these events are completely free of charge and are aimed towards parent carers that have children with SEND in the Derby City area.
