Our vision for SEND at St Peter's :
Our St Peter’s ASPIRE curriculum provides knowledge-rich, progressive learning for all from Early Years to the end of Key Stage 2.
For children with SEND, throughout the curriculum, we look to overcome any barriers to participating and learning and make reasonable adjustments to include children with SEND in all aspects. Inclusion is more than just giving children access to the curriculum; but responding to children’s diverse learning needs and overcoming any potential cognitive or physical barriers to learning. Through our carefully planned curriculum and series of lessons, we aim to minimise or reduce these barriers so that all children can fully participate and learn.

What is the SEND Code of Practice?
The SEND Code of Practice sets out statutory guidance for schools. A revised SEND Code of Practice was implemented in September 2014, with the main aim of developing better partnerships between children, parents/carers, educational settings, health professionals and social care.
The revised SEND Code of Practice can be downloaded here:

Have your say on the SEND provision in Essex. Below is the recently published Essex SEND Sufficiency Plan (Nov 23). This plan sets out school placements and services and the intended plan to support children with SEND in Essex moving forward. At the bottom of the document is a link where you can have your say on the proposals. There is also a link to register to attend a meeting to discuss the plan. Have your voice heard and contribute to creating an effective and sustainable future for children with SEND needs.
