Mrs King, Mrs Thomas and the Governors of Holme C.E. Primary Academy
From a new family (June 2018)
A whole term has passed now since she started at Holme and I wanted to let you know that at home we feel like we have a different child....... she is far more willing to try new things, not just academically but personally. She hasn't had a single headache or bad stomach since starting at Holme....We were very aware that when she joined the school she was considerably below 'where she should be' and for any school taking a child on at that level it just adds more pressure to the teachers, so we wanted to thank you for putting so much in place within a short time....We realise that she is still at the start of her journey in making progress at Holme, if you know of ways that we can support her further please let us know, whilst she is willing we will gladly do what we can!!
On KS1 SATs (June 2018)
I forgot to pass on how amazingly Miss Perkins handled the sat tests with the children, he wasn’t phased and even said he enjoyed them, which is all down to how school prepared the children so thank you......(Yr 2 parent)
Reward Day (May 2017)
"..I just wanted to take a second to thank you, all of the staff and FOHS volunteers for a fabulous day last Friday. The reward day was such a great event that was loved by children and parents alike. It would have no doubt taken alot of time and energy to organise.....what a great way to let the children celebrate their achievements. It was a real treat."
A selection of comments left on our 'pop up' board during the day
"Great day. Great fun. Great school!"
"Thanks for such a wonderful day. Lots of fun - such a treat!"
"AMAZING! Thankyou so much. This was special."
"Lovely to be able to spend time with Toby at school. Great day."
"Lovely school with fantastic children. Thanks for having us." (Urban Safari, visitors for the day)
"Brilliant idea - absolutely loved it, thankyou."
Young Voices (January 2017)
"Please pass on my thanks to everyone involved in The Young Voices trip, we had a great time! Such an amazing experience for the children, Holly is sad that it is her last one, and Fearne is already excited about the next one! So, thanks for all your hard work and giving the children the opportunity to experience Young Voices."
A huge thank you to Mrs Allen, Mrs Cook, Mrs Southwell and Mr Batty for taking our children to Birmingham for Young Voices yesterday. What an incredible experience it was for them (and us!) I had heard good reports from previous years but it exceeded my expectations by a mile. I realise that it was a very long day for you all but I am very grateful that you made it happen.
I thought I would drop you a line to let you know how our daughter is getting on at her secondary school. We have just received her second progress report with some very positive comments. As you know I was quite anxious about her starting secondary but I am pleased to say she is settling well. With As and Bs for effort and behaviour I don't think we could ask for more. With this outcome, we are certain that Holme Primary was the right move for us for her in Yr 5 and feel that you have contributed to her good attitude to learning.
Many thanks, previous Yr 6 parents
