Purpose and Aims

Holme Valley provides excellence in education, which ensures that all pupils reach their full potential
in an environment of mutual respect, support and encouragement.

Through a whole school approach, we aim:

  • To provide a stimulating and challenging curriculum, where high-quality teaching results in acquisition of basic skills,
    knowledge and concepts which build upon children’s prior knowledge.
  • To provide a broad and balanced educational experience for all pupils.
  • To reinforce positive behaviour, improve pupil motivation and achievement.
  • To provide opportunities and support to maximise the effectiveness of all staff.
  • To ensure that the physical environment is safe, tidy, attractive and stimulating.
  • To monitor the efficient provision of high-quality resources and enrichment opportunities for maximum benefit of all pupils.
  • To encourage and promote an active partnership within the school, with parents and the wider community.
  • To encourage and support parents to work in close partnership with the school for the benefit of their children.
  • To provide a range of opportunities to develop the skills essential for children to become responsible,
    confident and caring citizens in a multicultural and diverse society.
  • To encourage our pupils to explore and question the world around them and become more environmentally aware.
