Special Needs and Disabilities

Petersfield School is committed to providing a fully accessible school and school environment which values and includes all pupils, staff, parents/carers and visitors regardless of their education, physical, sensory, social, spiritual, emotional and cultural needs. We are committed to challenging negative attitudes about disability and accessibility and to developing a culture of awareness, tolerance and inclusion.

Everyone at Petersfield is committed to providing the conditions and opportunities to enable any pupil with SEND (Special Educational Needs or a Disability) to be included fully in all aspects of school life. While our SENDCo oversees provision for pupils with a special educational needs or a disability or for more able pupils, every teacher takes responsibility for the provision for each child. Class teachers are responsible for the progress of every pupil in their class, including those pupils with additional needs.

Accessibility Plan

Our accessibility plan describes the arrangements we have already made and the further proposals planned, to improve physical access to the school, access to the curriculum and access to written information.

Special Needs and Disabilities Policy

The school has a policy for supporting children with special educational needs or disabilities which is revised annually.

Special Needs Information

We believe that all pupils have an entitlement to a broad and balanced curriculum, which is differentiated to enable pupils to:

  • understand the relevance and purpose of learning activities.
  • experience levels of understanding and rates of progress that bring feelings of success and achievement.

Pupils may have special educational needs either through out, or at any time during, their school career. Effective parent partnership is essential in supporting the needs of a child with SEND needs. We encourage all parents to work closely with us so we can support them and their child at Petersfield.

The Governor responsible for SEND is Mr Colin Wilson.

For more information, please contact our SENDCo Miss Tabitha Smith.
