Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
St Alfege with St Peter's school welcomes pupils of all abilities and backgrounds and ensures that all have the best possible access to a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum, relevant to their needs.
A child will have special needs if they are very able, has learning difficulties, has a medical condition, has a physical disability or has emotional and behavioural difficulties. We aim to identify ways in which all pupils can reach their potential and provide a supportive framework for all pupils with special educational needs (SEND), taking into account the nature and degree of each child’s needs.
SEND pupils are integrated into classes with the support of Mrs Simpson, our Assistant Headteacher for Inclusion and SENDCO. Mrs Simpson is available for advice or to discuss any concerns that parents may have – please phone the school to request an appointment.
Our highly skilled teachers and teaching assistants adapt the curriculum to meet individual pupil’s needs. Support may take the form of differentiated classroom activities, individual or small group support in or out of the classroom, specialist help from the SENDCO or other SEND specialists and/or specialist help provided through external agents such as educational psychologists and speech and language therapists including Mrs J Cross. The governor with responsibility for ensuring that Special Needs regulations are met is Dr Irene Bishop.
You can find out more about SEND in the Royal Borough of Greenwich on their Local Offer website.
