Holmesdale Infants is a warm and welcoming school, providing an outstanding curriculum and experience for all its pupils. We see starting school as the beginning of a life-long journey of discovery. We are passionate about allowing our children to explore the world around them, helping them to follow interests that will inspire, motivate and fill them with awe and wonder, allowing them to enjoy the learning they do.

We have high expectations of behaviour and we aim for a calm and purposeful environment but, at the same time, we ensure that learning is fun. We strive to enable our children to work to the best of their individual abilities, enabling them to become ‘The Best Me I Can Be’, both socially and academically.

  • Can be flexible and willing to respond to new challenges.
  • Is resilient, innovative, with infectious enthusiasm.
  • Has a sense of humour.
