Welcome to Horsted Infant School
Our aim is for every person big and little to be safe, happy and successful.
The staff have discussed the value of these aims and considered the good practice which surrounds them. The curriculum is organised to promote all aspects of children's development. It is structured to provide continuity of learning within the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 and where appropriate leads into the Key Stage 2 curriculum.
Our schemes of work identify the introduction, consolidation and development of key concepts and skills. Careful planning ensures that at every stage staff recognise and build on learning which has previously been experienced. Each child is seen as an individual and is encouraged to develop at his/her own rate to achieve the highest possible potential.

At Horsted Infant School all pupils are given every opportunity to develop to their full potential, intellectually, spiritually, emotionally, morally, socially and physically.
We provide a safe, stimulating and secure environment where pupils and adults value themselves and each other; they are encouraged to care for others, seeking
co-operation before competition.
Pupils and staff strive to achieve their best and to recognise success.
Every pupil is given equal opportunities, regardless of gender, nationality, race, ethnic origin, religious belief or disability; to share and to achieve is to succeed.
We provide a broad and balanced curriculum, which includes the Foundation Stage, the National Curriculum and Religious Education; it is relevant and differentiated according to the needs of each pupil in the school.
Parents are kept fully informed of their child's progress and are given opportunities and sufficient time to discuss issues regarding their child. We endeavour to work in partnership with parents at all times. We consider their opinion and value their help and support.
The school is a Community Infant school catering for the education of children in the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 of the National Curriculum. The Education Authority serving our school is Medway Council.
