How You Can Express Your Views At Hollyfast

Here at Hollyfast your opinions are important to us and we are always keen to hear suggestions. We operate an ‘open door’ policy, which means parents are always welcome to come into school to discuss any concerns. There are several ways in which you can express your views...


See the Class Teacher

Parents’ evenings take place once per term, which are a good way of keeping up to date with your child’s progress. We encourage parents to keep in contact with the school as much as possible. Class teachers are nearly always available for a moment or two at the beginning and end of school day, however it is also possible to arrange an appointment at a mutually agreed time for longer or confidential discussions. Appointments can be made directly with the class teacher or through the school office.


See the Head Teacher

As well as seeing to the class teacher, appointments can also be made for you to see the Head Teacher, Mrs Hayes-Jones at a mutually agreed time.


In writing

If you’ve got some feedback for us, you can always put it in writing and hand it into the school office. Alternatively you can send us an e-mail at 

Mrs Hayes-Jones also sends out an annual parent questionnaire, this is another way you can let us know what you think!


Parent View

Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think about Hollyfast. It will ask you about several aspects of the school including quality of teaching and learning to behaviour. Ofsted will then use your answers to help them decide which schools to inspect and when. Please remember if your feedback is specific to your own child, it may be better to see a member of staff in the first instance, who will be able to respond and resolve the situation quickly.


Parent View is accessible from the link below

Communication to Parents

There are many ways in which we communicate with parents...

  • Email and text message

  • Website ( including official publications such as the School Prospectus, Ofsted Report and Curriculum Overviews.

  • Notice board (on the main pathway into the school site from the side gate)

  • Weekly Newsletter

  • Individual letters

  • Display Screen (situated in the lobby)


Often, important information and answers to queries are published in these communications, so look out for them! In addition all letters that are sent home, including the newsletter, are uploaded onto the ‘News and Events' page of the school website.




Should you feel that an issue/concern has not been dealt with in a satisfactory manner through the methods above; parents are encouraged to put their views in writing and address it to the Chair of Governors. This will then be discussed by a Governing Body panel and a response will be given.
