Welcome to Horsendale Primary School.
Mrs Karen Jagger
Welcome to Horsendale Primary School’s website. We hope the site will provide you with a wealth of information whilst giving you an understanding of the culture and ethos of our wonderful school.
Horsendale Primary School is a school of choice where parents and staff have high aspirations for our children both academically and socially. Children, parents, visitors and those who work at Horsendale enjoy a warm welcoming atmosphere where all are nurtured and cared for; well-being for all being a whole school priority. We pride ourselves on being an innovative, forward-thinking school.
Education is ever-evolving in response to the dynamic world we live in. Therefore, I believe that the educational world that we create for our children should be one of security, creativity and happiness so that each child has the confidence and resilience to rise to the exciting challenges they face each day. As practitioners we have a joint responsibility alongside parents to ensure that our children strive for excellence in pursuit of their dreams.
In working together to achieve this common goal, we can all ensure that each and every one of our children ‘Dream, Achieve and Flourish!’
