School Values

Our Ethos

Horton Church of England Primary School will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England.


In partnership with the wider school community we seek to provide an education of the highest quality, underpinned by Christian belief and practice. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith and promotes Christian values such as compassion, forgiveness and honesty.


As a school community we strive to promote respect for each other and the wider world. We aim to foster resilience and independence in our young people so that they are fully equipped to take on life’s challenges.


The children’s happiness is at the heart of all we do as we strive to ensure children meet their full potential.



Our vision

Our vision at Horton School is that everyone knows that they are loved by God and learns all that they need to flourish, contributing to the good of others in the school community and the wider world.


I am come that they might have life and have it to the full– John 10.10

Love your neighbour as yourself -Mark 12,31


We aim to make this vision a reality by:


An inspiring curriculum.

Our intention is to educate for wisdom, knowledge and skills through an inspiring curriculum so that each child can stretch themselves spiritually, morally, intellectually, imaginatively and actively to develop a lifelong love of learning.


Living out Christian values

Horton school values are rooted in the life and teaching of Jesus Christ and we seek to demonstrate an ethos of living well together, embodying the centrality of relationships in love, compassion, generosity, truth telling and forgiveness.  Jesus gives us a vision of life as part of the family of God and we aspire to help each child find joy, happiness and acceptance in our school so that each child may know they are a blessing to the school community.


Learning to live as part of the wider community

We encourage hope in God’s future for the world  and through our global citizenship curriculum help children to realise their responsibilities locally, nationally and globally and to develop an increasing awareness of how to create a more healthy, sustainable and just world.  We work in partnership with parents and the local church.  The charities with whom we are linked support the priorities of our vision.


Valuing Self and Others

At Horton school we educate for dignity and respect. We are learning to offer our gifts and talents freely for the good of all so that we can make a difference to our school, our community and the wider world. Our commitment to the ultimate worth of each child is informed by the belief that each person is loved and valued by God. We emphasise sharing our experiences and supporting each other through listening and caring.
