Hornchurch Academy Trust

Welcome from the Head of School

Welcome from Ms Kotze


Thank you for taking the time to look at our Website.

I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of myself and my team to welcome you to our website.

We are a four form entry school and we have 12 classes in total;

4 Reception classes

4 Year 1 classes

4 Year 2 classes 

At Shears Green Infant School our mission is to create 'Happy, Confident Achievers.'

We are focused on enabling children to become confident and creative builders of their own future.  We do this through a team of people who are caring, nurturing and supportive to each individual.  We believe families are the key to developing enthusiastic learners, therefore, the relationship between school and home is a two way communication. 

We promote and continuously develop a creative curriculum with purpose and meaning to the lives of the children we support and care for. The curriculum encompasses the richness of the children’s lives, the local community and the evolving world around them. 

We believe children can meet the academic challenges we present to them with openness, enthusiasm and a willingness to solve problems. We believe in creating an environment where appropriate risks can be taken creating socially and academically responsible people. 

Through providing a school climate whereby children feel happy, safe and supported we believe we will provide life long learners to the world.

We warmly welcome visits to the school so you can experience for yourself what makes Shears Green Infant School a great place to learn and achieve in.
