Welcome From The Headteacher

Welcome to Holly Lodge Primary Academy.

Together we can Achieve More!

Dear Parents, Carers and Visitors to our school.

A very warm welcome to Holly Lodge Primary Academy which is part of the Kite Academy Trust.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. I hope that you find it informative and that it answers any questions you may have. My name is Cheryl Dancer and I feel truly privileged to lead such a wonderful school and to have the opportunity of ensuring that each child at Holly Lodge Primary receives the best possible education in their formative years.

Ofsted graded our school as ‘Good’ in our most recent inspection in December 2018. We hold many nationally recognised awards including: Healthy Schools and the Gold Sports Active Mark. We have recently been awarded the Silver charter mark for anti-bullying.

As a school, we continually work hard to build upon our strengths and to address our areas for development in what is an ever changing and challenging educational climate.

At Holly Lodge Primary we have high expectations of our children and set challenging targets for them. Every child is encouraged to reach their full potential and we recognise that every child is special and has their own contributions to make.

Our staff are dedicated, hardworking and experienced. We provide a safe, calm and caring atmosphere in school and foster a hardworking ethos based on an enjoyment of learning within a stable environment. We expect a great deal from our children and they do not disappoint us. We are pleased to offer a varied selection of enrichment and enhancement opportunities and possess excellent links with our diverse community – we are very proud of our reputation as a warm, welcoming, family school.

The Staff and Governors continually seek the views of parents, carers and visitors to our school. We recognise that parents play an important role in the education of their children and as such, we welcome your support and co-operation in making your child’s time at Holly Lodge Primary enjoyable. We are fortunate to have a very active Parent Teacher Association (HLSA) and encourage parents and carers to be involved in all aspects of school life or to discuss any concerns or issues with us. Please call at any time to make an appointment to see either myself or my team – all members of staff will value discussing any aspect of your child’s education and general welfare.

We have an aspiration for all our children that through their school journey they will fulfil their academic potential and become successful lifelong learners. In addition, we endeavour that our children will possess high levels of both social and emotional intelligence so that they are well placed to succeed and thrive in the future, becoming active and productive members of society. Our school values of REACH - Respect, Effort, Achievement, Care and Honesty together with Fundamental British Values are embedded in all we do. The well-being of our children is important to us and we have three trained ELSAs (emotional literacy support), as well as a family support team.

Our website is only a glimpse of what we feel makes Holly Lodge Primary Academy distinctive. The best way for you to appreciate what we can offer your child is to experience our school first hand. I do hope you will visit us to meet our children and staff and to experience life at our unique school. Also, please head over to the Explore our Academy page to see a virtual tour of Holly Lodge. Although this was filmed during the lockdown, when we were not able to invite parents in, I hope it gives you a good feel of our school.
