Welcome to the Hollies

11 Nov - Assembly- Theme of the week


Fire Safety Talks

Many people are injured and killed as a result of fire every year; some of these fires will have been preventable. According to Government statistics there were over 182,000 fire incidents in the year up to March with 253 fire related deaths. Fire incidents have started to rise again after many years of decline.

We need to educate our young people as to the dangers of fire and fireworks. Young people can often be risk takers for a variety of reasons – their age and stage of development means that they can be easily distracted, do not recognise danger and may be more likely to take risks. Experimentation with smoking and the need to hide this can increase risks, along with use of candles and fireworks and the fascination that fire can often have, mixed with drugs and/or alcohol which can increase the likelihood of an accidental fire.

Staffordshire Fire service will be visiting school on Monday 4th November and Wednesday 6th November to talk to our students about fire safety and the importance to be vigilant.

The Hollies Pupil Referral Unit

I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of the Staff and the School's Management Committee to welcome you to our school.

The school provides education for secondary aged pupils aged 11-16 years old. Our pupils come to us at various points during their secondary schooling due to them being permanently excluded or at risk of permanent exclusion. Regardless of prior circumstances we firmly believe that all pupils at the Hollies should be successful and we do everything possible to deliver this vision.

We are very proud of our school and pupils. We have high expectations we strive to provide the best education possible for our pupils: re-engaging them with learning, ensuring their special educational needs are identified and understood. We develop teaching and learning programmes which enable all of our pupils to be successful.

Our school staff team is an established, highly skilled team. All of the staff are hardworking, extremely dedicated and place the needs of the pupils at the heart of everything that they do. Our job is to help them get back on track, either through a return to regular schooling or by completing Year 11 with us, so that they emerge prepared to make a positive contribution into further education, employment or training and we have excellent links with the full range of post 16 providers.

We hope you find the website interesting and informative. If you need any further information, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
