Dear Parents/Carers, Welcome to Holmer Lake Primary School. The time spent in primary school is an extremely important part of any child’s life. We want the time spent here to be full of exciting and challenging learning experiences which allow and encourage your child to develop to their full ability. We hope that you, your child and staff can work closely together to make Holmer Lake Primary School the kind of community where every child is valued, where your child grows as a developing and caring individual and where the highest standards of learning are achieved. Your child should expect to work hard but should expect to have fun too! Through our school website we hope to give you a broad outline of the opportunities offered to your child at this school. We invite you to visit us while the school is at work so that you can better understand the kind of school community we are. This invitation is offered to any parent, whether your child is of pre-school age or very much older. The Governors and Staff of the school look forward to working with you over the years that your child is at Holmer Lake Primary School. We hope that we are able to share with you the excitement of your child’s learning and, as partners, work with you to achieve the high expectations we have for each child at Holmer Lake Primary School. Yours sincerely, Mrs Siân Deane Headteacher
Dear Children, Welcome to Holmer Lake Primary School .We would like to tell you about some things that go on at our school. No matter who you are, everyone at Holmer Lake is treated the same and made to feel welcome. There is no need to be shy, you will always find a friend here. Here at Holmer Lake, we have special lunches to celebrate special occasions throughout the year. Sometimes parents are invited to join us for lunch, for example on Mother’s Day. These are good times for us as children to enjoy. We have times when we can dress up and give donations to different charities. Also, we have clubs run by teachers and outside organisations at lunchtime or after school. These change every term to give everyone a chance to do things they enjoy and learn new skills. At our school, we have many expectations, such as, showing respect. Children, and also adults, have to show respect to each other. We have a set of rules called the TOP 5. These rules are: *Mutual respect *Everyone is treated the same, every minute of every day *Always use good manners *Knowing why we are here and what we should be doing *Showing we are ready to listen to each other. Pupils at our school are given the chance to work with the Head Teacher and other children. This may be as a result of being a member of Team Safeguarding, School Parliament or being a Lunchtime Ambassador. School life for children is important, if you work hard you can achieve in life. Yours sincerely, All pupils at Holmer Lake Primary School.
