Special Needs - Inclusion

What does Ofsted think about Inclusion at Hillbourne Primary School?

We are rated a "good" school according to our Ofsted Inspection Sept 2012.
“Those pupils in need of additional help, for example those with special educational needs, are well taught. There is a good partnership between teachers and their assistants and good communication over pupils‟ personal plans”.

Please come and meet us!  We always encourage families/carers to visit Hillbourne School if they are considering a school place in Poole and the surrounding area. We have Open Days in the Autumn Term but are happy to arrange appointments to suit you and your child's needs.
