Our overarching aim is to provide our children with an engaging, exciting and empowering curriculum that enables them to ‘Know more, remember more, do more’.
At Horndale County Infant & Nursery School our curriculum is designed to: recognise children’s prior learning, provide rich first hand learning experiences, allow the children to develop interpersonal skills, build resilience and become creative, critical thinkers.
Our community is an integral part of our curriculum. We wish to ensure pupils have rich social experiences and know their locality and what it has to offer. We want our pupils to be taken out of their comfort zone and become resilient and confident learners.
Basic Literacy skills are ever present throughout our curriculum. By providing a vocabulary rich environment to further develop pupils speaking and listening skills we will ensure pupils have a love of language. They will develop a real love of books where every child will learn to read and be successful at reading. ‘Teach a child to read and keep that child reading and we will change everything – And I mean everything.’ – Jeanette Winterson
At Horndale, we intend for every child to love learning and become life-long learners promoted through our school values of kindness, confidence, honesty, equality, happiness, and respect. Positive attitudes to learning will reflect the values and skills needed to promote responsibility for learning and future success.
Please view the curriculum subjects section of our website for a further look at how our curriculum is planned effectively across school so that pupils build on their prior learning.
Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
At Horndale County Infant and Nursery School we believe that inclusive education means providing all pupils with appropriate education and support alongside their peers. The Curriculum is all the planned activities that the school organises in order to promote learning, personal growth and development.
