The governors and staff hope that the information contained on our website will be helpful to you and your children. It is published for those of you who are new to our school community but also for parents/carers who already have children attending this school.
At Horbury Primary Academy we believe that the child is at the centre of everything we do and we have tried to create a broad, balanced and creative curriculum to ensure that children are engaged in their learning and above all enjoy coming to school. We have an enthusiastic, caring and professional staff who work hard to ensure this happens.
We want every child to reach their potential and our ultimate aim is to create a lifelong love of learning which gives children not only new skills, knowledge and understanding, but also key learning attributes that will enable them to succeed as they begin their path in life. We have a culture of learning in which we have high expectations of all children that enables them to achieve through challenge and support.
As a school our aim is that every member of the school community feels valued and respected, and that each person is treated fairly and well. We are a caring community, whose values are built upon mutual trust and respect for all. We feel that this will prepare our children to become respectful citizens in the future and that they will continue to show these same open and positive attitudes towards people they meet, regardless of their social or cultural background.
Our children are very well behaved and our behaviour policy is based upon a system of rewards and sanctions which aims to help children to grow in a safe and secure environment, and to become positive, responsible and increasingly independent members of the school community.
Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions about the school or if you wish to arrange a visit.
