Headteachers' Welcome

Miss F Hickie



I would like to offer you a warm welcome to Trafalgar Community Infant School. We are a three form entry infant school situated in the town of Horsham.

All our children are valued individuals who are encouraged to be independent, develop self-esteem and self-respect and are inspired and motivated to do their very best. We have an experienced, caring and dedicated team of staff who are committed to ensuring that every child in our school receives the best possible start to their first few years of school life.

Keeping children safe is the most important part of our job in school. If children feel safe then they are happy and ready to learn. We encourage everyone (children and adults) to learn from mistakes and to take reasonable risks in order to develop. Safety is our biggest priority and was identified in our most recent Ofsted as being a real strength of the school.

We offer a broad, balanced and exciting curriculum based on the interests of the current cohort of children. The children speak passionately about their learning, and are proud of their progress and efforts. We encourage children to work collaboratively, as research shows that most children learn best with their peers. At Trafalgar, we have high expectations of all children, and we carefully monitor their progress to ensure that all children reach their potential. We are a school where the staff love teaching and the children love learning.

As a community infant school, our children are offered responsibility from the very start. They can be elected as a School Council representative, striving to make learning even better, trying to improve our premises and thinking globally about how we can make the world a better place. They can be a Librarian, a Playground Pal or show an act of kindness to someone sat on the Friendship Bench. We think not only about our local community, but about our global community, recognising that we have much in common with people all around the world. We are an inclusive school where the wellbeing of all children and staff is a priority, and remains a crucial part of our School Improvement Plan.

We hope you find what you need from our website but please do not hesitate to call the School Office if you would like to know more about our school.
