As an inclusive school, we are proud of the support we offer to all pupils including those with Special Educational Needs & Disabilities.


Our school is part of the Schoolsworks Multi-Academy Trust and the West Worthing Locality of Schools who work collaboratively to ensure best practice and a common approach. 


We ensure that all children are included fully in the life of our school, whatever their additional need may be.


The information below relates to our school. Further support for families and young people with Special Educational Needs & Disabilities is available via the West Sussex Local Offer website at


Supporting all of our children to reach their potential is key. We work together with parents of children with Special Educational needs or disabilities, because we understand that you know your child best.

Mrs Helen Morris - SENCO:  

Special Needs and Inclusion Policy

At Hawthorns we monitor every child's progress to ensure that they achieve their full potential.  Some children at times have difficulties and it is important that we identify them and support them.


The school can also receive advice and support from a wide variety of outside professionals and experts.  Our staff undertake regular training to better support children's varying needs.


There is funding within the school budget to meet the needs of our children including those with special needs.  If you have any worries or concerns our SENCO/Inclusion Manager is available to talk to you on a regular basis.


The school works very closely with Children's Services to ensure that we provide all of our children with the best possible provision.


Similarly if there are children who are more able we have an able pupil register and we monitor their progress to ensure that they are working to a higher level.  A summary of our provision can be found on our website and is referred to as the 'Local Offer'.
