This section of our website is focused on our Curriculum and provides and overview of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Framework and the Curriculum offer for children in Years 1 and 2.
The curriculum is all the planned activities that the school organises in order to promote learning, personal growth and development.
It includes not only the formal requirements of the New Primary National Curriculum but also the range of additional opportunities that the school organises in order to enrich the experiences of our children. This includes an ever growing range of ‘Enjoyment and Enrichment’ opportunities available to our children across all year groups.
Our curriculum also includes the social aspects imperative for life long learning. Our children have high expectations of behaviour and tolerance towards each other. Horndale County Infant and Nursery School was awarded ‘Outstanding’ from Ofsted. The school continues to maintain high standards believing that education has to continually improve.
Horndale County Infant and Nursery School aims to maximise social and academic potential for every pupil on their exciting school journey.

Below is a basic yearly overview plan for each year group for the academic year 2018-19.
Please view the classes section of our website for a further look at how our curriculum is put in to practice in school.
Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
All pupils follow the New Primary National Curriculum at a level and a pace that is appropriate for their abilities. Our SEND philosophy places SEND children at the heart of personalised learning and our curriculum is tailored to meet individual pupils needs.
At times and when it is felt appropriate, modifications to the curriculum may be implemented. To successfully match pupil ability to the curriculum, Horndale County Infant and Nursery School remain committed to:
- A range of teaching and learning styles
- Differentiated learning materials
- Access to ICT and Technology
- Additional in class support
- Additional out of class support
- Many Enrichment and Enjoyment opportunities to stimulate and motivate learning
- Flexible groups – including small group support work
- An innovative and supportive curriculum
- The appropriate use of rewards and sanctions
- A broad range of extra-curricular activities, including homework support, one to one support and booster/extension sessions
