Hollesley Curriculum

Our Curriculum

At Hollesley Primary School we want to offer children a varied diet of opportunities and experiences, ensuring that they are nurtured in each and every way. This is underpinned by our school motto: Nurturing the Roots of our Success. We accomplish this by ensuring the children have access to a broad and balanced curriculum. By using Cornerstones curriculum, it is our intention that pupils love learning and are taught to understand what it means to be a successful, well-rounded individual in today’s changing society.
