SEND & Inclusion

Everyone is








Barford St. Peter's is an inclusive school and we value each and every child's contribution to our school family. We strive to ensure that all pupils have access to an education that is appropriate and tailored to their needs, promoting high standards and the fulfilment of potential. This should enable them to: 


- achieve their best

- become confident individuals living fulfilling lives

- make a successful transition into adulthood


All staff are responsible for ensuring that our pupils achieve their potential personally, socially, emotionally and academically in all areas of the curriculum, regardless of their gender, ethnicity, social background, religion, sexual identity, physical ability or educational needs and via a broad and balanced curriculum. At Barford St. Peter's, we set high expectations for every pupil, whatever their prior attainment. 


Our Deputy Head Teacher, Mrs Lucy Rose, is our school SENDCO. She works within school 3 days a week on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to support families, staff and children to ensure we meet all our pupil's SEND needs. 




SEND stands for special educational need or disability. If a child is struggling to make progress in nursery, school or college, it is possible that they may have a special educational need or disability. A child or young person with SEND needs provision which is different from or additional to that available to others of the same age. A child's needs should be identified and the provision should match the identified needs. The SEND Code of Practice (2014) identifies four broad areas of need and support:


Communication and Interaction

Cognition and Learning

Social, Emotional and Mental Health

Sensory and/or Physical Needs


Please see SEND Supported for information about specialist teachers with whom we work closely and for ways that parents and carers can support their child at home. 


Please see the policies below for more detailed information about our provision. 


If you have any questions regarding special educational needs and disabilities, then please arrange to speak to Mrs Rose. She can be contacted by emailing or through the school office. There are a wealth of resources to support you at the bottom of this webpage - please do take a look.



What is Warwickshire's SEND local offer?


Warwickshire's SEND local offer brings together information about the local services and support available across education, health and social care for families with children and young people aged 0-25, who have special educational needs and/or disabilities. Watch this video to find out more.


The intention of the local offer is to improve choice and transparency for families. It will also be an important resource for parents in understanding the range of services and provision in the local area. You can find out more about Warwickshire's Local Offer here.


Schools across Warwickshire are making their pledge to inclusion to reinforce the county's commitment to providing and inclusive education for all children and young people. To support this commitment, a new Inclusion Charter has been created to set out a shared vision for schools across the county using the four cornerstones of 'Welcome and Care', understanding that every child is an individual; 'Value and Include', remembering that inclusion is everyone's responsibility; 'Communicate' and 'Work in Partnership'; working together to recognised need and support families on their journey. 


You can also find more information at Warwickshire SENDIAS or the charity KIDS which has provided a wide range of services nationally for disabled children, young people and their families. Their services cover three main areas: information, advice and family support; play and social and learning and development.


For further family support you can access Children and Family Support Services

For legal guides, resources and template letters you can access a wealth of information here
