I would first check the starter motor by putting a live tester to the small terminal while someone turns the key if tester does not light up you may need to check the fuses or ignition switch. if it does light up it may be a faulty starter.
if the starter is fine you may want to get your battery and alternator tested, you can do this your self if you have a multi meter by getting the engine running and connecting the red wire to the battery positive and the black to the battery negative, the mever should read between 12.9v - 14.5v. if this is ok it will probably be your battery.

if this helps please let me know

My daughter has a Peugeot 206cc 2003/4 i beleive.

In my opinion there is problem with starter thats not engaging or if engaging then can't turn the fly wheel. The other method i can suggest is that to take the help of your friends. Push the car on road. Place the car in 2nd gear and keep pressing the clutch. Let the car push by your friends and by a suitable speed release the clutch in one go to give the engine whole shock of force to start. I think you know what i want to say. Its a push start method. Be carefull that power assistance is not available until engine starts hence you need muscle power for a hard steering and brakes.

If you don't have any spare key then go to peugeot dealer or call out a professional locksmith who can supply replacement and reprogram your new key to your car's ECU.
