About The Holme Church of England Primary School

The Holme is an ‘ever growing’ school in the heart of the local community. We are an approachable, supportive and inclusive school and we are very proud to provide a happy, positive environment where children have the aspiration and self-belief to achieve their goals, whatever they may be.

The Holme is an academy in the Good Shepherd Trust, a visionary Trust, which together with our school leadership team; enable us to give our children the very best possible primary school experience.

We know that every child has the capacity for success and we have tailored a bespoke curriculum to enable our children to learn about the world around them, trying a wide variety of experiences and discovering and succeeding in their own talents and passions. Our topic/enquiry based curriculum is further enhanced by a range of both visits and visitors and wider opportunities such as after school clubs, residential experiences and participation in local and national events, such as ‘Young Voices’.

The school is fortunate to benefit from superb facilities, including a mini-bus and extensive grounds, with a large, purpose built Forest School area that is integral to the school’s curriculum. There are also strong links with the local church.

There is an onsite pre-school called ‘Little Badgers,’ with whom the school have a good relationship. This partnership successfully supports the transition of families into their Reception year, alongside a programme of home visits and ‘stay and play’ sessions.

Friends of The Holme (FR OTH) are an active body within the school community and have continued to seek innovate ways to support the school during recent lockdown periods.
