Dear Visitor

Welcome to the web site of Holbrook Primary School. A school that has been judged by Ofsted to be good with outstanding Leadership and management. We hope you will enjoy finding out more about our school and looking at some of the things we do.

We are particularly proud that during our inspection, Ofsted recognised that


Teachers are highly focused on gaining pupils’ interest and inspiring them to learn. They use questioning very well indeed to check on and deepen pupils’ understanding.’ This means that the pupils of Holbrook enjoy their learning, are encouraged to have high expectations and aspirations for themselves, work hard and become successful learners.


We offer children a curriculum that is creative, exciting and one that places a high value on learning beyond the classroom. ¬†Ofsted found that ‘The redesigned curriculum includes topics that strongly motivate pupils. It effectively promotes their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.


At Holbrook, we have established a culture of constant reflection and sharing of ideas and as a result, staff at all levels contribute effectively to the school’s development and feel valued. We are well supported by our Governing Body who Ofsted stated are ‘highly effective.


We believe every child is an individual with talents and special qualities to develop and celebrate. Our BEST system supports this well and pupils say they love this! Children and families at Holbrook come from different parts of the world and bring many languages, cultures and faiths to school. We warmly welcome and celebrate this rich diversity that makes our school a very special place. Our pupils are proud to be part of the School Community representing our shared values well.


We know that parents play an extremely important part in their child’s education. We welcome you to Holbrook school and we very much want to work together to help your child to be the BEST! Parents told Ofsted that they appreciate the information they receive about their child’s progress and the ways in which all staff work in partnership with them.


Please have a look around our web site and read our full Ofsted Report (June 2016). We would welcome your comments about both the site and Holbrook Primary School. If you would like to visit our school, we would be delighted to meet you and look forward to hearing from you!


Kind Regards
