Welcome to Holmesdale Infant School


A very warm welcome to the website of Holmesdale Infant School. Thank-you taking the time to find out about our outstanding school. There is a wide range of information available on the site, but if you would like to find out more please do contact the school. We are happy to arrange a visit.

Holmesdale Infant School is a vibrant and happy place to learn. Staff work hard to plan and deliver a curriculum that is creative and interesting, encouraging children to become confident and independent lifelong learners. We put the children at the centre of all we do and work hard to cater for all their needs, including their safety and wellbeing.

Starting school is the beginning of an important journey and we strive to provide firm foundations on which all children will build their future. We challenge children to be 'the best me i can be' both academically and socially, encouraging them to take risks, learn from their mistakes and develop lasting friendships. We recognise that learning should be exciting, fun and rewarding everyday.

At Holmesdale Infant School we work together closely with parents, carers and extended famillies to create a whole school community that is inclusive of all.  Our open door policy encourages communication and there are many opportunities to visit school and see for yourselves what goes on in our fantastic school!

I am extremely proud to be the Headteacher of such a wonderful school and I hope that you take this opportunity to find out more about us, either through this website or in person!
