REMINDER – Pupils should not be taken out of school during term time for family holidays. Doing so may result in a fine.
Our Residential Provision was inspected back in January, and the report from this is now available on-line from the Ofsted website. You can reach this by following the Ofsted link on the Parent Info drop down menu. The overall judgement was again ‘GOOD’ with ‘OUTSTANDING’ for ‘How well children are helped and protected’.
A copy of the report is also available by clicking the following link. Holly House Residential Ofsted Report 2018  If any parent would like a printed copy of the report they may be collected from the school office.
Reminder about School Uniform – There is Pupil Premium funding available for uniform. Please get in touch with the office if your son is growing out of their uniform. The Uniform checklist is on the PARENT INFO drop-down menu.
