Special Educational Needs

Staff at Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Primary School aim to develop and improve upon the inclusive culture which is already well established within the school. We interpret ‘inclusion’ therefore in its widest sense, as a process whereby the school continually seeks to offer equal opportunities for participation and success to all its pupils, whatever their age, gender, ethnicity, ability and attainment, behaviour or background. The philosophy of the school is that it caters for the needs of all the children attending Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Primary School. We utilise our own resources and those of outside agencies. We believe in the rights of the child to receive the best education that we can give and one that best meets their needs. To this end it is necessary to work in partnership with both parents and child.

An SEND code of Practice has been introduced in September 2014, click on the links below for our school and Knowsley Local offer.
