At Holmwood School our RE curriculum covers various aspects of religion and belief. Children throughout the school learn about the beliefs and customs of the 5 main religions. They learn about the religions represented in our area and about what we can learn from their values and practices. Through our RE curriculum the children learn to respect themselves and others as well as their environment.
Our weekly assembly programme provides the children with a sense of belonging within the school and our visits to St Agnes Church at Harvest and Easter with a greater sense of community. We encourage parents and carers to join us at these times to celebrate with the children.

At HolmwoodSchool we enjoy learning French. We have been fortunate to have a French native speaker in school to support staff and pupils with their French.
Our aim is for French to become embedded across the KS1 & 2 curriculum and for all pupils to develop their awareness of cultural differences in other countries.
French lessons are to include:
French is also included in whole school occasions such as French days and Theatre performances.

It is vitally important that no one displaying symptoms of Covid attends school or nursery.
If your child or anyone in your household is showing the symptoms of Covid, all members of the household need to isolate immediately and the person with symptoms should have a Covid test.
The symptoms of Covid are:
All members of the household must also isolate until the result of the test is back. Please alert your child’s school if you have taken them for a test (and only access a COVID test for individuals if they develop symptoms).
Isolation means you should stay at home. Do not go to work, go out shopping or take your children to school or nursery. You will need to make arrangements for family or friends to help out. You should not socialise or have any visitors to your home.
If the test of the person with symptoms is negative, then no-one needs to isolate.
If the test of the person with symptoms is positive then the person who has tested positive for Covid must isolate for 10 days and everyone else in the house must isolate for 14 days. Parents/carers should make schools/educational settings and workplaces aware of any positive test.
Testing is available locally. Anyone with any of the coronavirus symptoms is advised to book a test online www.nhs.uk/ask-for-a-coronavirus-test or by calling 119.
For further information about Covid, please call 111 or go to www.gov.uk/coronavirus
