Ethos and Values

     Our Vision


      Our curriculum is designed with two goals in mind: 


  • First, to provide opportunities for children to develop as independent, confident and successful learners with high aspirations for both their future both as individuals and members of wider society. 
  • Second, to provide a coherent and structured curriculum that enables all learners to enjoy their education and achieve their potential, whether this be through appropriate challenge and tasks to encourage greater depth for those who are capable, or targeted support to embed skills or develop at a pace that best suits individual need.  


Our curriculum is shaped by seven key drivers which help to enable the vision of our school, and respond to the particular needs of the school community. The overall aim is for our curriculum to enable long-term learning to ensure that our children leave Holywell with the key knowledge and skills required for their next stage of education. 


The curriculum drivers that we have developed are:

Literacy and oracy.

Mathematical application, problem solving and reasoning.

Aspiration and enquiry.

Opportunity and experience.

Cultural capital and the creative arts.


Personal development.

Our School Values


Our School Values are six elements that we expect all pupils to uphold and demonstrate whilst at school and within the wider community. They are:


  • Consideration for others
  • Courage
  • Respect
  • Honesty
  • Friendship
  • Responsibility




Our School Rules


At Holywell Primary, we are committed to creating an environment where exemplary behaviour is at the heart of productive learning. Everyone is expected to maintain the highest standards of personal conduct, to accept responsibility for their behaviour and encourage others to do the same. We encourage our learners to be ambitious for themselves and for others, as we challenge and support them in questioning the world and in finding solutions.


Our three key rules are:


  • Be ready.
  • Be respectful.
  • Be safe.
