Teaching and Learning at Horizon

At Horizon Primary Academy, we believe that every child deserves to receive the best teaching possible each and every day to become highly effective independent learners today and for the future. 

We therefore use the following pedagogical model across all subjects in the curriculum.

T&L model 2023

This also ensures that children with SEND and less able learners are appropriately supported and more able learners are challenged.

This model works closely with the EEF 5-A-Day principles as part of our univsersal inclusive offer.

As a school, we adopt the 'Gradual Release Model' to apply the principles in our pedagogical model. Click here to view more about this.
