A message from Headteacher Ann Pelham
Welcome to the Holly Park website, I hope that you will enjoy finding out more about our school as you navigate around this site.
Holly Park is a large two form entry primary school (with two bulge years) with a nursery. We are a happy, ambitious and inclusive school and I am very proud to be the Head Teacher of such a richly diverse school community in which families of different languages, cultures and religions learn together in harmony. I can’t imagine a nicer place to work!
At Holly Park we believe that children deserve the best possible chances in life and therefore we encourage strong links with parents. We are a friendly, caring school with high expectations for all our pupils. Whilst the school is often a hive of activity, the staff work to provide a calm, stimulating environment with good behaviour and mutual respect.
An important principle for my leadership is to remain closely connected to the pupils and to the classroom. My Deputy and I teach in one class each week from nursery to Y6. This keeps us focused on leading a school that is constantly trying to improve teaching and learning.
To summarise my personal vision for Holly Park: children should go through the school feeling that it is a happy and stimulating place in which they feel confident and valued. They should leave it not only having fulfilled their personal best in terms of academic results, but also equipped to progress to the next stage of their lives with confidence, enthusiasm and the values of truth, compassion, generosity and optimism.
Every school has a head, but not all schools have a heart. And this is why I count myself so fortunate to be at Holly Park. I am delighted to be the Head of this school and to work for Barnet.
