Head Teachers Full Message

Welcome everyone…

We hope you will enjoy looking at our website and learning about our school and Nursery.

getAt Horndale County Infant and Nursery School we aim to provide a happy, friendly and caring environment where children can feel secure and valued.

Children are encouraged to develop self discipline and mutual respect for each other and for all adults in an atmosphere which promotes learning and encourages all pupils to achieve their full potential. We were judged to be ‘Good’ by Ofsted in our most recent visit during October 2022 and were pleased with comments such as:

“The school has improved significantly since the previous inspection.”

“A culture of positivity and determination defines the mood in school.”

“In some subjects, such as mathematics and geography, curriculum thinking is clear. Leaders have designed a curriculum structure that identifies the key ideas that thread through a subject. Learning is broken into smaller units. The essential knowledge pupils need is planned in sequence so pupils can make connections in learning. This helps pupils remember more and do more over time. Pupils build new learning on what they already know.”

“Pupils have fun and enjoy learning. This includes pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).”

“All the children at Horndale County Infant and Nursery School are special. Some have particular talents, and some may require more support in small groups or perhaps individually. We have a carefully designed system for identifying individual needs and, as always, we aim to work closely with parents.”

Details of the school’s Special Educational Needs policy and guidelines are available on request.

Horndale County Infant and Nursery School is committed to equality of opportunity to all its pupils, regardless of gender, ethnicity, religious affiliation or disability.

We are continually updating our website and please do not hesitate to contact us if you cannot find the information you require.
