Welcome to Our School

Welcome to Holland Junior School.

At Holland Junior School we are a happy, friendly and caring school at the heart of our community. Hand in hand with our families, we have high expectations which nurture the successes, growth and happiness of every child. Children will leave our school with lasting memories and the skills to blossom in their future.

Our caring ethos allows us to see every child in our learning community as a unique individual. We believe in making a difference for every child and that all children have unique talents and abilities to offer the world. It is our job to nurture these and support the development of each child’s potential to enable them to take up their rightful place in their community. We pride ourselves in preparing our pupils not just for tests but for the tests of life.

We demonstrate our commitment to our learning community through our school values of kindness, respect, responsibility, honesty, perseverance and positivity. We believe that nurturing and promoting these values in our school community leads to greater resilience and improved mental and emotional wellbeing in our pupils. Our school is a happy, friendly, caring and safe environment where each and every child is valued for the contribution they make. 

Our Values

We have six main values we believe to be most important in our school community. These values were debated with teachers and pupils to ensure all members of the community had a voice. Our values are:

  • Kindness
  • Honesty
  • Respect
  • Perseverance
  • Positivity
  • Responsibility

Kindness is:

  • Thinking about how another person may be feeling
  • Helping someone who is in need
  • Doing something to make the world a nicer place
  • Giving - your time, a smile, a helping hand

Honesty is:

  • Always telling the truth, never stealing or cheating
  • Not hiding the truth about something, being sincere
  • Being able to share how you feel, however difficult it may be
  • Responding to and growing one’s own conscience

Respect is:

  • Respect is knowing we are unique and valuable
  • Respect is knowing we are lovable and capable
  • Respect is listening to others
  • Respect is knowing that others are valuable too
  • Respect is treating others as we would like to be treated ourselves

Positivity is:

  • Becoming resilient through making mistakes and challenging oneself
  • Being in a good place to learn
  • Confidence; belief in oneself
  • Approaching situations enthusiastically and optimistically

Perseverance is:

  • About trying, trying again and trying once more
  • Trying it again a little differently
  • Trying it again tomorrow
  • Trying and asking for help next time
  • Trying to find someone who might have done it before
  • Trying to find out what is and isn't working
  • About keeping on trying and not giving up!

Responsibility is:

  • Responsibility is doing your own fair share of the work
  • Responsibility is taking care of things
  • Responsibility is taking care of oneself
  • Responsibility is taking care of and helping others when they need it

By thinking of these values in our daily lives at school we aim to support our pupils to become responsible citizens who are conscious of their place in the world, the positive contribution they can make to it and to have the resilience to meet the tests that life will bring them.
