Horn's Mill Primary School is an outward looking school which grasps every opportunity to learn from and support colleagues.
Frodsham and Villages Support Partnership
Evolving from the LA supported Education Improvement Partnership work, the FAVSP is a group of 11 primary schools and 1 high school in Helsby, Frodsham and the surrounding rural villages. Through this partnership, our school is able to access training, sharing of good practise and excellent transition. Children benefit from a range of activities and experiences that are organised by the group.
Sharon Wyatt, our head teacher is a member of a group of head teachers who all became heads in September 2014 and thus accessed traning provided by the LA called HeadSpace. This group of head teachers from Chester and surrounding areas has evolved over time and now work closely together ensuring an excellent support network and opportunities for shared training and good practise.
Horn's Mill Pre School
As our main feeder pre school and situatied on our school site, we work very closely with Horn's Mill pre school. Whilst the staff are not managed by our school, we share and offer bespoke training through our EYFS leader to improve outcomes and transition from FS1 to 2.
The Literacy Co.
During the year (2017-18), a senior leader in school is working with this company on a secondment, and this continues on a consultancy basis. This is providing excellent CPD for this member of staff and will ultimately feed into our own staff training plans.
Reading and Research
As a team, we endeavour to read and research as much as time allows! Most recently we have accessed training from Guy Claxton and Dylan William. We are currenlty working on research linked to Paul Dix and Alison Peacock.
