Aims, Ethos & Values

Self Belief. Aspiration. Kindness

A Holmewood education is about the whole child and our aim as a school is to foster the aptitudes and nurture the growth of each and every one in our care and instill a lifelong love of learning through a rich and broad curriculum..

We encourage children to become independent, creative and critical learners who aim for standards of excellence in all that they do. We encourage them to become their best selves in the fullest sense.

We believe that emotional and social well-being, self-esteem and confidence are inextricably linked with academic progress and we aim to teach children resilience and an appreciation of global opportunities and developments in an ever-changing world.

We believe that respect for children, faith in children and an ability to see the world through their eyes should inform our teaching and our care.

We aim for the children at Holmewood to have a generosity of spirit and empathy and to understand the importance of the values of kindness, self-belief and aspiration.

In all that we do, our aim is to work closely with parents, guardians and the children themselves.
