GEMS Hampshire School places traditional values at the core of our school's philosophy, whilst preparing our children for a rapidly changing world. Our school focuses upon exceptionally high expectations, key skills, knowledge and understanding of the British Curriculum as well as encouraging excellent attitudes to learning and metacognition.

Children requiring School Action Plus/ Early Years Action Plus can be accommodated by the school with the parents/carers funding specialist provision either in school or externally. It is integral to the school’s ethos that all children experiencing special educational needs are respected, encouraged and viewed in a positive way. At The Hampshire School children on the SEN register have Individual Education Plans (IEPs)which set out a number of targets to support children on their identified needs. Children on the SEN register receive at least one hour per week of individual support on their identified targets. Progress is closely monitored and the IEPs are reviewed regularly. Parents are given regular feedback and are consulted on the target setting for the IEPs. Provision for EAL is tailored to the child's needs. Children receive in class support, group and individual tuition, aimed at achieving full access to the whole school curriculum, as their language skills develop.
