Welcome from the Headteacher

Thank you for showing an interest in working at Horsenden Primary School. We are a large, multicultural school where we hold limitless aspirations for our pupils and staff. We are keen to recruit inspirational and ambitious staff to join our well-established team. Our school values, represented by the HORSE code (Hardworking, Optimistic, Respectful, Sincere, Empowered) underpin the work we do. Staff and governors strive for continuous improvement to achieve exemplary teaching and learning experiences for all of our pupils, each and every day.

We achieve all of this by investing heavily in developing and valuing all staff. Staff are developed in a range of ways and are provided with a wide variety of opportunities to engage in personalised training, including opportunities for professional reading, discussion and self-reflection. The professional development programme is complemented with a coaching-style feedback model, strong links with other local schools, and opportunities to access externally provided qualifications such as the NPQs.
