Advice for parents from the Department of Education 22.3.2020
What are the expectations on schools regarding staying in touch with parents whose child is at home?
We recognise that many schools have already shared resources for children who are at home and are grateful for this.
The Department for Education is working with the BBC and other partners to provide advice and support directly to parents, including online resources they can access for their children at home.
This is an exciting time for everyone who is involved in the Hollybush School community; we have a fantastic staff team and are committed to Hollybush Primary School becoming a centre of excellence for local children and families. Hollybush Primary School was inspected by Ofsted in March 2018. As a result of the significant programme of improvements put in place by the leadership team since the appointment of a new Headteacher in September 2017, the inspection team found:
“The recently appointed head teacher exudes high expectations. She is ambitious for all pupils and has created a positive learning environment. Staff are committed to improving the school rapidly, and morale is good. Governors are increasingly challenging of key leaders and managers. They know the school well.” Ofsted March 2018.
Hollybush Primary School is a warm and welcoming place to be. We strive to provide learning of the highest quality and to recognise and nurture the individual interests and abilities of every child. We want our children to believe in themselves, to respect others, and are committed to attaining the highest personal, social and academic standards.
“The school promotes pupils’ personal development well. Pupils are well cared for and feel safe.” Ofsted March 2018.
The staff at Hollybush Primary School encourage and nurture the partnership between the school and our families as we know a strong home/school partnership is key to children’s happiness and success. There are regular informal and formal opportunities for parents to be involved in the life of the school, through events such as parents’ meetings, assemblies, performances, productions and visits during themed weeks.
“Parents and carers indicated that their children enjoy school. Parents are supportive of the school’s work” Ofsted March 2018.
Please don’t hesitate to contact school directly if you have any further questions.
