The Harbour Centre

                         Welcome to The Harbour Centre where everyone is kind and caring and shares our school vision "Learning for Life" and our values  'Include, Inspire and Invest'.





To include all pupils, so that they are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives.


                              To inspire our learners to explore their talents and achieve their dreams.


To invest in our future citizens, so they make a positive contribution to society.



The Harbour Centre is a Specialist Centre at The Hythe Community Primary School.

It offers quality provision for up to 16 children in Key Stage 2 with learning and additional needs (LAN) within a mainstream setting.

In September 2017 we extended our provision into Key Stage 1 for children who have Communication and Interaction Needs (COIN).  We offer up to nine places in our Key Stage 1 Centre.

All children in the Centre have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP).


A multi-sensory approach is widely used, enabling all children to access the curriculum whatever their preferred learning style. The small number of children allows for a high level of individual support and ensures that each child’s progress can be assessed and evaluated closely. The curriculum can then be adapted to suit the individual needs of the children.

The Centre children are included in whole school and year group mainstream class activities as much as possible, but always with their individual needs in mind. The Harbour Centre shares the ethos and aims of the school, the information in our prospectus is in conjunction with the main school prospectus.
