Preparing Children for Life in Modern Britain
At Horncastle Community Primary we are committed to serving our community and surrounding areas. We recognise the multi-cultural, multi-faith nature of the United Kingdom and understand the crucial role our school plays in promoting these values.
We are a school for all.
We provide opportunities for pupils to explore their own culture and have a clear understanding and appreciation of a wide range of the cultural influences that have shaped modern Britain.
We encourage all children to be tolerant and respectful to those of different faiths and beliefs.
Our pupils embrace these concepts with enthusiasm and demonstrate a good understanding of their application to their own lives.
Rights Respecting School
We are a Rights Respecting School. The letter below was written by our School Council about what Rights Respecting Schools are and why they are so important.
The Mini Police project is a fun and interactive volunteering opportunity for 9 to 11-year-old children. The Mini Police support the force priorities, through participation in community engagement events. Those involved can look forward to developing a confident voice through enjoyable experiences.
Children who become part of the programme help to tackle local issues, as highlighted by their own communities. By assisting the police service, they also carry that ownership and pride back into the community they live in.
This term our Mini Police have visited the local care home and have spoken to the public in a local coffee shop about how to avoid scams.
PCSO Nigel Wass helps to run our Mini Police.
The School Council provides a voice for all pupils within the school. Each class elects two members who attend meetings. The children offer ideas from their peers and feed back to their individual classes. The council considers many issues in school, including the refurbishment of shared areas/facilities and deciding on fundraising initiatives.
Here's what our children say: "Being a school councillor makes you feel self-confident because you are making changes to your own school, and makes you feel special and like you're in control. You need to be reliable, responsible and well organised."
Visit our school council displays in Upper and Lower school to see who our councilors are this year.
Our Year 6 councillors are also members of the Horncastle Town Youth Council that meets several times a year. The Town Youth Council has representatives from the four schools in the town and is led by the Mayor of Horncastle.
