Special Educational Needs Policy and Information Report

The Local Authority is committed to all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, making the best progress possible in their educational setting, which, wherever possible and with the agreement of the family, will be a mainstream setting.  

All Peterborough schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with special educational needs and disabilities.  Schools have access to a range of professional services provided by the local authority which includes the Educational Psychology service, Autism Specialist Teacher Service, Sensory Support Service, Occupational Therapy and Speech and Language Therapy Services.

Below you will find some general information about the different approaches, interventions and professionals who may be involved when children present with special educational needs.
