Our Mission

At Holborough Lakes we aspire to succeed and work together to achieve. We strongly believe that every child has the ability to reach their full potential with the correct nurturing and teaching. We work in partnership with parents and the local community to provide nothing less than outstanding education for all our children at Holborough Lakes. This is reflected in our core values, which are at the heart of all that we do: perseverance, respect, resilience, oneness, understanding and determination. We are a school to which the whole school community - children, staff, parents and governors - are proud to belong.



Core skills

We show our strengths and work cooperatively, making a contribution and allowing others to do the same


Core skills

We have the ability to put ourselves in someone else’s shoes and experience what they experience. Our community displays kindness through our thoughts, words and actions. We help others and understand that understanding and kindness needs to be shown to all. Through these acts we develop positive relationships with others and our community.


Core skills

We show respect and tolerance for everyone in our community, we respect ourselves and others alike. We value what others say and do, even if they are different from us. We take care of ourselves, friends, family, community and our environment.


Core skills

We dream without limits and keep trying. We persevere when faced with challenges. We are confident to take risks and always try our hardest in everything we do.


Core skills

We try to solve problems ourselves in different ways before asking for help. They take charge of their own learning and develop skills to have more autonomy and control over their learning. They learn from others and work collaboratively. They are reflective learners and are able to make decision about what will help them to achieve.


Core skills

We never give up, even when faced with a challenge. We learn from our mistakes and see them as opportunities to extend our learning. We try to solve our problems before seeking advice and guidance. We learn to manage distractions and reduce interruptions.
