I have been the Headteacher at Holyoakes Field First School since 2006 and believe that school should be a happy and safe place for children to learn skills for life in a fun and friendly environment.
The memories that our children will accumulate whilst they are with us are what gives the school its heart. We celebrated our centenary in 2013 and were delighted to discover that the school had friends and pupils going back 70 years who wanted to share their memories of Holyoakes Field. It is our aim that all children will leave Holyoakes Field with a feeling of pride, having achieved their very best. 'Pupils behave well, they enjoy school. Pupils are polite and well-mannered. They thrive in school due to the outstanding pastoral care and school prepare them well for their next stage of education at the end of year 4' (Ofsted 2017)
Holyoakes enjoys a close and friendly relationship with the local community, typified through the use of the allotments we share with our neighbours next door. The school is situated within easy reach of Redditch town centre and has a long and dignified tradition.
We constantly strive to make the school the best it can be, together we will help children to believe in themselves, aspire to take on new challenges, but most of all we will give them 'an opportunity to shine'. 'This is a school that is improving because leaders are focused on striving for greater achievements for the pupils' (Ofsted 2017)
I look forward to meeting you and being part of your child’s learning.
Thank you for visiting! Come back soon!
Mrs Carol Newton
