Hollybush Primary School was inspected in September 2021.
Some highlights from the 2021 inspection report include:
Hollybush Primary School is a happy and welcoming school. Pupils feel safe here. Their chosen values of ‘nurture, respect, aspire’ promote a sense of caring for others and prioritise mental well-being. (Ofsted September 2021)
Behaviour has been transformed at Hollybush. The school environment is calm and purposeful. Teachers have high expectations of pupils’ behaviour. Pupils are polite and respectful. (Ofsted September 2021)
You will see from the report that work was still underway with mapping the Hollybush curriculum for early years into year 1 and beyond. We were already working on this at the time of the inspection and as a result of working with external advisors, this work has now almost been completed. We are looking forward to sharing the new Early Years curriculum with our Early Years families soon. In the meantime, we are delighted that the inspection team observed how safe, happy and settled children are in Early Years, and the effectiveness of our Early Years learning environment.
"Children feel safe and happy in early years. Teachers develop strong relationships with children and have taken time to ensure that they are settled and happy in school." (Ofsted September 2021)
"Much has been done to organise an effective learning environment both in Nursery and Reception. The children are settled and happy"
