At Hollinswood Primary School & Nursery we aim to develop every child’s skills, knowledge and attitudes in order for them to become confident, independent and inspired learners.
We encourage the children to have high expectations and to contribute towards, reflect on and shape their role as learners - in addition to being responsible members of the school, the local and the wider community.
Through a context rich curriculum that goes beyond the school walls, children are given the confidence to aim high and to be the very best that they can be.
We see excellence in teaching and a love of learning as the key to succeeding in life. In a supportive, positive and caring environment our teachers and our learners are fully committed, focussed on the task ahead, passionate in overcoming obstacles and alive for a challenge.
Planning for the Future
Hollinswood Primary School & Nursery is a very good school. The school has a strong inclusive ethos secured across three phases (and two buildings) embedded in high expectations, where even the most challenging and vulnerable pupils behave well and enjoy their learning, and those who are newly arrived to the country are welcomed and provided with support which enables them to flourish.
During the 2016/2017 academic year we asked our staff, governors, parents and children to reflect on our strengths and successes and to consider how we should build on them, providing us with additional focus and direction. This then contributes to our vision for the school. We found that:
We will plan to ensure that the points above are developed in a robust and measured way through our Raising Achievement Plan. This is based on our findings of how teaching and learning is carried out across the three phases, within the current Ofsted framework.
