A MESSAGE FROM OUR HEADTEACHER, KAREN ALTY


A warm welcome to our wonderful school!

Holly Grove Primary School Homepage

Holly Grove is a primary special school that provides a specialist learning environment for pupils with a wide range of learning difficulties including moderate and severe learning difficulties, complex needs and autism.

Within our specialist learning environment, we are committed to providing:

  • high-quality education for all our pupils
  • access to inclusive learning opportunities with our co-located mainstream partners
  • access to a range of state-of-the-art facilities including a hydrotherapy pool, sensory studio and soft play room
  • input from an experienced multi-agency team of therapists

Our Mission Statement Together we Learn, Together we Achieve and our 10 Golden Rules reflect the ethos of our school which values every child as an individual.

Ofsted (2023) said, “Holly Grove School is full of joy. Pupils arrive each day full of smiles and excitement for the day ahead. They are greeted warmly by the kind caring staff. Exceptionally close, friendly relationships between staff, pupils and their parents and carers mean that this is a happy place to be. Pupils feel that they are safe and loved”.

"Leaders are determined that every pupil at the school will flourish. Pupils meet leaders' high expectations of their behaviour and achievements. Skilled staff ensure that pupils' varying special educational needs and/or disabilities are well catered for. ...Leaders have in place an ambitious and engaging curriculum. This meets the varied needs of pupils very well."

"Governors keep a careful check on how well pupils are achieving. They visit the school regularly to ensure that leaders are taking the right actions to maintain high standards."
