At Holmwood House, we firmly believe that providing a happy learning environment is the key to each child’s progress and future success. We provide a safe and nurturing environment where every single pupil is seen, heard and supported on an individual level. Through our Tutor/Tutee Mentoring sessions, we aim to ensure the best possible learning experience for every pupil where they are encouraged to take ownership of their own learning. Through our buddy system, we provide our older pupils with mentoring and leadership opportunities. It also allows our younger pupils to have extra support and attention from their fellow pupils, in addition to our caring staff. Staff promote pupils’ self confidence through support, praise and encouragement. Every child’s achievements, academically and beyond the classroom, are celebrated and recognised.
Pastoral care is regarded as a major strength of our school community.
- Care, Courtesy and Consideration are at the heart of our Code of Conduct for all pupils and staff; referred most frequently as the 3Cs
- When a child enters the school, he/she is attached to one of three Elements or Houses; Air, Land or Water
- Our robust and caring pastoral system supports each individual child to be motivated to reach their potential
