Head Teacher's Message

Dear Parents and Carers 

Usually my welcome on this page is to invite you to our school website and share with you Hollybrook’s successes, our values and our community.  However, during this period of COVID19 things are not usual.  What does remain the same is our sense of community and our commitment to support your children  and young people, in every way we can. This is a time of great uncertainty and change. Lots of us are feeling stressed and overwhelmed.  We will continue to support our pupils  by adding regular updates of work online through the website and sharing ideas we have seen others use through our Facebook and Twitter pages, Hollybrook Academy.  We will also use Groupcall to send you any urgent messages by text, or for vital information that we think will help you. 

These are times like we have never experienced before. The most important message I can share with you is to stay safe and healthy, both physically and emotionally. There is no obligation to do the work we issue online. It’s there to try to help create structure, routine and to keep your child busy. It is not there to give you extra stress or pressure. Do not underestimate the everyday things and their importance. Teaching your child to cook, playing games, doing exercise or reading with them is just as valuable.  

As ever, we are only a phone call away to help. Please do not hesitate to contact myself or Mrs MacLeod if you need support, advice or just someone to talk to while we all go through this together.  

Our email addresses are below.  

Take care, stay safe and healthy and we will hopefully be opening up the doors to Hollybrook soon. 

Warm regards 

Jackie Newell  

Head Teacher
