Our Safeguarding Statement:
"Horsmonden Primary School and all the personnel are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our children."
Horsmonden Primary School is set in a thriving and popular rural village with a strong community feel. The school has been on this site since 1969 and has been extended and improved several times. As well as ample teaching space, there is a newly re-developed library, extensive grounds and new play equipment.
We believe that all children deserve a great education through inspirational teaching and a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities. This aim is stated simply in our Vision: Together we will inspire a love of learning and help all children to achieve their personal goals, now and in the future. This guides everything we do at Horsmonden and is underpinned by our values of aspiration, collaboration, integrity, resilience, happiness, kindness, creativity and respect.
Horsmonden is a wonderful school with amazing children and staff - you can get a feel for this through our website but we would love you to see for yourselves! I would be delighted and proud to show you around and look forward to welcoming you to our school.
“Happiness, Kindness, Success”
