A few words from the Headteacher

I am delighted to welcome you to the Hawthorns Primary Special School website. As well as providing you with our latest news and key information, the website aims to capture the daily magic and exciting learning that takes place in our school every single day.

We have a highly committed and skilled team of staff who provide a happy and safe learning environment for the children in our care. We celebrate the uniqueness of all our pupils, and we are dedicated to providing a rich, engaging curriculum suitable to their particular needs and aspirations.

Here at Hawthorns, we have great families that work with us to build close relationships in the interests of their children. Our parents and carers value the effort put in to make Hawthorns such a special environment, and we value their trust in us and our work. We collaborate with all agencies to provide the right support for our pupils, and we provide advice and training for other schools for the children in their settings.

We are immensely proud of all of our children and the many things they achieve. It is a privilege for those of us that work here to share the learning journey our pupils take. We encourage them to be resilient, build their confidence and independence, and we show respect for the individuals they blossom into during our care.

I hope you find the website provides a flavour of our school, and that you find what you are looking for. If you are considering an admissions application, please come and visit us to explore if we are the right environment for your child. I look forward to meeting you.
