Horley Infant School is an inclusive school. We work hard to ensure that pupils are included in all aspects of learning and school life. We ensure good quality, inclusive teaching which takes into account the learning needs of all children in the classroom. We aim to provide a high standard of education which develops and inspires all our children. We are committed to children achieving their potential and believe this is gained through outstanding teaching, high expectations of behaviour and an environment where they feel happy, safe, valued and respected.
Children sometimes experience difficulties with their learning and require additional support to accelerate their progress to enable them to work at or above age-related expectations. A small number of children may require highly tailored intervention to accelerate progress to enable them to achieve their potential. This may include one to one or specialist interventions.
Our whole school provision map details what we provide for all our children as part of Quality First Teaching (QFT) and also what provisions are available for children with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities (SEND). Additional provisions are also provided for children with English as an Additional Language (EAL) and those with Speech and Language Needs. We are proud to be an inclusive school and view all learners as individuals.
We value the partnership between home and school and encourage parents to share concerns or information as soon as a need arises. The decisions to put additional support in place are made by the school with support from parents. It is based on a variety of factors including academic progress and assessments carried out by teaching staff or other professionals.
