Our Aims for children at Horndean Infant School

  • To feel good about themselves, value their emotions and talk about their feelings and opinions.
  • To have confidence in their own ability to be successful and develop as self motivated learners.
  • To have a continuous love of learning and to develop the ability to become reflective thinkers, able to pose their own questions and to always do their best.
  • To show good citizenship by demonstrating respect for the school, the environment, other people and knowing they can make a difference.

Horndean Infant School Ethos

As an outstanding school we have identified specific learning behaviours to enable the children to become lifelong learners.  We believe high standards in relation to behaviour and learning depend upon the examples set by all who work in the school. All members of the school community have a contribution to make and we work hard to provide a positive learning environment.  All members of the school community show mutual trust and respect for each other and are expected to model these at all times.
