In the years we have been open the school has gone from strength to strength. Last year we were named in the Chief Inspector of School's report to Parliament as an outstanding school in England. To mark this occasion Mr Wright was invited to meet Prince Charles at a garden party at Highgrove.

Healthy Schools

At Horbury Primary School we take the physical and emotional health of everyone in school, very seriously.  We are currently working towards the Healthy School's Award.  Miss Warne leads a Healthy School's task group who meet regularly to decide on new ways of promoting health in school.

This is how we are doing so far:

  • Joined the National Fruit and Vegetable Scheme and it is running successfully. KS1 children and one KS2 class are enjoying high quality fruit and vegetables every day.
  • Introduced the Playground Friends Scheme - very pleasing response from children from Nursery to Year 6.
  • Water coolers installed in school.
  • A Health display has been set up, offering a wide range of leaflets and advice on various health topics.
  • School Nurse has led various health related assemblies.
  • Increased extra curricular activities for KS1 and KS2.
  • Life Skills being taught as an extra subject in Year 6.
  • Increased PE time for every class - outside games an emphasis.
  • Toys have been purchased for the KS1 playground, to be used at playtimes and lunchtimes.
  • Cycling Proficiency course booked for Year 6 in April.
  • Pedestrian Crossing training booked for Years 2 and 3 in January/February.
  • A relax and revive study room for staff is now completed.
