At Horton Kirby Primary School, our aim is to make learning fun, enjoyable and inspiring! If we can open children’s minds to accepting a challenge and enjoying meeting it, then we open a world of opportunities for them. Opportunities to meet with success, realise their potential and follow their dreams! Primary children enjoying their learning style is key to future success!

About Horton Kirby
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 the 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 the improvement of knowledge and skills within an environment that allows for individual differences and learning styles: whilst maintaining a sense of safety and security.
We are a part of Aletheia Academies Trust. 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
