ABOUT OUR SCHOOL

At Horton Kirby Church of England Primary School we provide a welcoming, inclusive environment where everyone’s thoughts and ideas are valued. We seek to create a stimulating and varied programme of education, within a challenging learning environment, that encourages high expectations for success of pupils of all abilities and backgrounds: developing each child’s potential to its full capacity. In doing so, we will enable our pupils to develop the ability to acquire confidence and a positive mental attitude to all tasks, leading to improvement of knowledge and skills within an environment that allows for individual differences and learning styles: whilst maintaining a sense of safety and security.

 

Our school promotes a safe, orderly, caring, and supportive environment. Each pupil’s self-esteem is fostered by positive relationships with staff and effective communication with parents. We strive to include our parents, teachers, governors and community to ensure strong liaisons with the community.
