Welcome to Horton Park Primary School

‘Everyone Learns To Succeed’

On behalf of the governors, staff and children of Horton Park Primary School, we would like to warmly welcome you to our website.

We are a popular, two-form entry primary school with excellent facilities, located at the heart of the Canterbury estate in Bradford, West Yorkshire. We are also part of Exceed Academies Trust and work collaboratively with other highly successful schools to ensure the best opportunities are provided to our children and the community.

Our children develop as individuals, achieving well in all areas: We work hard in providing our children with the cultural capital they need to be successful in our thriving community and beyond. Each individual child is important to us and our dedicated staff team work hard to ensure our children make rapid progress in all areas.

We are Successful

Everything we teach promotes an enjoyment of learning through creativity and curiosity. The curriculum builds on and provides rich opportunities which embed resilience, confidence, and independence. An ambitious mindset with high expectations of everyone, benefits our diverse, thriving community today and in the future.

We Communicate Effectively

We want children to learn effective communication skills, which can be applied in a variety of social interactions with a diverse range of people. This helps children to understand the emotion and intentions behind the information they are sharing and enables them to relate better to people with cultural differences. These key skills deepen connections, have a clear purpose and allow children to be more reflective. We ensure that ALL pupils acquire a wide vocabulary, communicate effectively and build on foundations for future learning.

We Experience Opportunities

Learning opportunities and rich experiences provided to our children enables them to broaden their horizons and make positive life choices. These experiences extend thinking, promote problem-solving and encourage children to take risks and become more confident as individuals. Such opportunities support our children in being aware of the aspirational possibilities available to them now and in the future.

We are Inclusive

Everyone strives to ensure all children and families are welcomed and valued, and that they get the right support to help them develop their talents, life skills and achieve their aspirational goals. This collaborative approach supports the well-being of children and embeds a strong sense of belonging. At Horton Park our inclusive ethos ensures all children are respected, treated fairly and differences are celebrated and valued.

We work together to provide every child with a brilliant start to their school life and recognise that parental engagement is key to the success of our children. At Horton Park Primary, we involve parents and other agencies as partners in the learning process.

We are extremely proud of our school and our achievements. If you would like to visit us, please contact the school office.
