Vision and aims

Children’s Aims for the school

My school is...

"Great! We learn lots and practise maths. I love the writing corner because I can write stories."

"The best school because I make new friends every day and play games with them."

"Amazing because the teachers are kind, helpful and funny. I feel safe."

"Great! Playtime is the best thing ever at school because we get to go on the fitness trail. No-one is ever mean."

Brilliant because when I go to the woods I like finding fairy cups. I like the topics that we do and the work that we do.

Fun! I like to do phonics because it helps us to do our spellings. We learn new stuff every day.

Excellent because it is as fun as your home, that’s why it is called Holmesdale Infant School!
