Ofsted

Holmwood School received a short inspection in February 2017 and we were judged to be “Good”

Some of the comments received were:

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. Although you only took on the role of headteacher in September 2016, your previous role as deputy headteacher has prepared you well.
You clearly know your school well and have a clear understanding of the needs of the pupils who attend it


Staff who completed the Ofsted online questionnaire
overwhelmingly supported your appointment. Those spoken to during the inspection spoke warmly and enthusiastically about your leadership style and future plans

You are ambitious for the school and have set a clear pathway for improvement

Parents spoken to during the inspection and those who gave feedback through Parent View (Ofsted’s online survey) unanimously held the view that the school is a safe and secure environment

7 Tips for Child Online Safety

There are a multitude of websites offering advice to concerned parents and remote working educators. If you do search for guidance and advice, make sure the website you are using is a trusted source. The ThinkYouKnow website offers valuable information and is the national online safety education programme from the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) command, a part of the National Crime Agency. As a parent, we also recommend you use your child’s school and teachers for advice. Remember that they are there to help and support both you and your child through this difficult time. 

We’ve compiled a list of ways in which you can help your child stay safe online. Remember, don’t be afraid to use the internet to help protect your child when they’re online. 

Thank you.
