Inclusion is an on-going process that celebrates diversity and involves the identification and minimising of barriers to learning and participation that may be experienced by any pupils, irrespective of age, ability, gender, ethnicity, language and social background and the maximising of resources to reduce these barriers.
At St. Peter’s we believe that every pupil has an entitlement to develop their full potential. Education experiences are provided which develop pupils’ achievements and recognise their individuality. Diversity is valued as a rich resource, which supports the learning of all. In this school, inclusion recognises a child’s right to a broad, balanced, relevant and challenging curriculum, which is appropriate to their individual abilities, talents and personal qualities.
Our mission statement is: ‘Working together to be the best that we can be’.
Aims and objectives

What is the purpose of our school offer?
St Peter’s School offer sets out in one place what we provide for children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEN/D) throughout their time with us. It explains how we support them on to the next stage of their education. It also outlines our commitment to working in partnership with parents/carers and children in order to deliver effective educational provision for all our pupils.
If you want to know more about the school’s legal duty towards children with SEN/D click here.
We will keep our School Offer under review, asking parents and children what is working well and what they want to improve. If you have any suggestions or comments about our school offer, you are welcome to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
