Our Learning

At Holt Primary School we aim to provide a carefully sequenced curriculum which includes rich and varied experiences for our children, so that they can become well-rounded, confident lifelong learners who will make a positive contribution to society in modern Britain and the wider world.

Our school is a vibrant and harmonious family community. We are a church school with a joint foundation to St Katharine’s Church and the URC but we recognise and value the different cultures, beliefs and lifestyles of our pupils. We firmly believe that the spiritual, moral, cultural and social development of our pupils is a vital part of their preparation for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life. Through RE lessons and assemblies, pupils develop their knowledge and understanding of how those who hold different faiths and beliefs to their own and we mark and celebrate special occasions and events across different faiths and cultures. When learning about different faiths, visits have been made to places of worship and the school has welcomed visitors to explore faiths with the children in a more personal way.

Agreed whole school rules and an expectation that our children demonstrate the highest standards of behaviour ensure it is a safe, happy and caring environment. Children are taught to understand their rights and the responsibilities, to respect and value themselves and others. They have a voice within school, through our School Council and contribute to the wider life of the school and community as Youth Parliament representatives and Young Ambassadors.

Excellence and enjoyment is at the heart of everything we do. Learning at our school is purposeful, creative, and fun. We want all of the children to develop a life-long love of learning that prepares them for their futures.
