Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

  • At Hotspur every child is seen as a valued and unique individual and we aim to provide a safe, supportive, creative, friendly and fun environment where all pupils can flourish. 

  • We nurture our children, taking good care to consider and cater for their varied life experiences, particular needs and learning preferences.

  • We are committed to providing an education that enables every child to make and acknowledge progress.  

  • We endeavour to provide a fulfilling learning experience, underpinned by high and realistic expectations, that encourages every child to achieve their best, socially, emotionally and academically.

  • We seek for every child to become an increasingly confident young person, preparing them for a successful transition into Secondary Education.
