'You have a strong, caring team, which is committed to making the school one where all pupils are valued equally.'



At Hobletts Manor Junior School we believe in equality of educational opportunity and aim to provide an inclusive curriculum and environment that meets the needs of all our pupils by:


  • Ensuring pupils’ Special Educational Needs and disabilities are identified promptly.
  • Making appropriate provision to help overcome any barriers to learning and ensure pupils have full access to a broad and balanced curriculum and school activities.
  • Communicating and working with parents/carers to gain a better understanding of their child, involving them in all stages of their child’s education.
  • Encouraging and supporting pupils to be involved in their education
  • Working with outside agencies when more specialist help is needed
  • Regularly monitoring the progress of all pupils
  • Supporting pupils to make a successful transition to and from other educational establishments


Our Inclusion Co-ordinator (Mrs Claire Short) is happy to offer advice and support or answer any questions you may have related to SEND. Please do not hesitate to contact her on (01442) 251805 option 3.

                    Developing Special Provision Locally (DSPL)

DSPL is a Hertfordshire-wide partnership approach where parents, carers, staff in early years settings and schools, further education colleges, local authority officers and representatives from other agencies, work together as part of an Area Group, to ensure that there are a range of provision and support services available in their local community that :

  • Meets the needs of children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), aged 0-25, as close to home as possible.
  • Improves outcomes for wellbeing and attainment
  • Widens choice for children and parers/carers
  • removes barriers to learning
  • uses resources effectively
