The Transition Team

Miss Yañez - Assistant Headteacher, SENCO and Transition Lead

My name is Miss Yañez and I am very excited to meet you soon before you join us at St. Peter’s in September! My role is to make sure that the transition for all pupils joining us goes as smoothly as possible and to provide any additional support to those who may be feeling a bit nervous or worried about the move from primary school to secondary. In my role as SENDCo, I work closely with St. Peter’s pupils, their parents and carers and their teachers to ensure that any pupils with additional learning needs have the best support and experience possible.
