Aims and Values

Hollyfast Aims


Our pupils are the feature of our school of which we are most proud.  Our aim is to create a happy, caring atmosphere in which pupils and adults show consideration and respect for each other at all times.  We aim to provide the highest standards of education within an inclusive environment. We have therefore developed a broad and balanced core-skill rehearsal curriculum, which is led by assessment and meets all statutory requirements, ensuring it challenges and meets the needs and interests of all our children. Our two school drivers of vocabulary and the outdoors are embedded into our teaching. We endeavour to ensure that all of our pupils fulfil their potential, experience success both academically and socially, enjoying their time in our care and developing their vision of themselves as learners.  We also have a variety of extra-curricular activities designed to enrich each child's experience, and actively welcome parents into school life.


Hollyfast Vision & Values


Our vision underpins our teaching and learning.  Through the promotion of positive learning attitudes, we strive to develop ambition, confidence, care, respect and tolerance in our pupils in order to prepare and enable them to become lifelong learners and take an active role in their communities, shaping the future and becoming fully rounded citizens. We believe firmly in using talk, group work and active learning to engage children in their learning, only using ICT when it purposefully enhances learning.
