Horizon Primary Academy

Aim High;


Spread Your Wings;


Learn Without Limits!


At Horizon Primary Academy we truly embody this ethos.


Every child and every member of staff receives the support, challenge and commitment to truly be the best that they can be.


At Horizon, we expect everyone to work hard, work hard to go further than they ever dreamed possible.


To achieve this, we have a healthy balance of high expectations for everyone to strive towards and a strong nurturing ethos that allows everyone to rise to these challenges, providing support, understanding, guidance and drive every step of the way.


We strive to remove every barrier possible to ensure that everyone can learn without limits.


Above all, we raise aspirations, set goals and provide enriching experiences and opportunities so that everyone can be better - not because they are not good enough but because a relentless drive for improvement and betterment are key attributes of the exceptional learners that we strive to create, nurture and build during everyone's time at Horizon Primary Academy.


At Horizon, we have exceptional ambitions for everyone; everyone is part of our ‘exceptional learning community’.


Underpinning much of the vision that we have for our school community are our 6 core values, all of which are designed to create exceptional learners, positive citizens, and change agents for the future.


Aspiration


At Horizon, we aim to be the best that we can be. We set the highest goals and standards for ourselves and each other and work hard to overcome any barriers in reaching these.


Resilience


At Horizon, we never give up! When things are challenging, we try our hardest to succeed because we have the confidence that we are great and can do anything. We develop grit and determination and work our hardest to overcome adversity.


Respect


At Horizon, we respect each other as learners and as individuals. We support and understand each other. We listen carefully to all members of the Horizon community and respect the environment in which we learn.


Pride


At Horizon, we take great pride in our learning, ourselves and our school. We always aim to produce our very best work and present it in a way that shows we are proud of our learning. We ensure we always look as smart as possible and wear the Horizon badge with pride. We know we are important, we are special and present ourselves in this way.


Honesty


At Horizon we believe that honesty is the foundation to our learning. We take risks and understand how we can learn from our mistakes. To do this, we must admit our mistakes and keep working towards success. We believe in strong moral values and that honesty and integrity underpin everything we do.


Equality


At Horizon, we believe in being fair and treat everyone the way they deserve to be treated. We understand, embrace and celebrate the differences in our community and are proud of the diversity within our school family.

Welcome from the Headteacher:


At Horizon Primary Academy, we create a haven for each and every child, a place where they are nurtured yet inspired to learn without limits and aspire to be the very best they can be.


We fundamentally believe in developing the whole child, encapsulated in our values of aspiration, respect, honesty, pride, resilience and equality, whilst ensuring that the children are part of an exceptional learning community, providing the highest quality teaching, experiences and opportunities so that every child can thrive.


At Horizon, we believe that the mastery of reading, writing and mathematics are the foundations that underpin the success of every child as does access to an enriching, broad curriculum that engages and excites the children, developing a desire to always want to learn more.


At Horizon, we know we can make a difference to every child and strive to do this in everything that we do. We care deeply for all of the children and their genuine wellbeing and are committed to supporting their positive mental health.


Horizon children, our children, deserve the very best, so we all work hard to be the best that we can be, knowing that staff wellbeing is fundamental in developing the best skills and qualities in every individual and the team.
