Holm ELCC Care Inspectorate update

Our Early Learning and Childcare Centre (ELCC) was recently inspected by the Care Inspectorate as part of their ongoing evaluation regarding the quality of the service we provide.

A copy of the Inspection Report can be found here or in the Policy Folder in the ELCC cloakroom.

Thank you to everyone who returned questionnaires and gave feedback on our service to the Care Inspectorate.

We were delighted with the results of the inspection and shall be addressing some of the feedback we received during the coming months – watch this space!



ELCC December Newsletter

Our Early Learning and Childcare December newsletter is available here or on the Newsletter tab on the main website. This contains information for both Nursery and Out of School Care.


A warm welcome to our UHI students.

We are delighted to welcome 3 students from UHI to Holm Primary.

They will be working in the ELCC building and Primary 1 for 2 days a week for the rest of the session.

As part of their studies for HNC in childhood practice, they are required to undertake observations of their children during daily activities as a method of enabling them to develop their practice and gather evidence for tasks and assessment.

To respect parents individual preferences and prevent the risk of sensitive information being available out with the placement setting, in line with the General Data Protection Regulations (2018) and Confidentiality policies and procedures we ask that parents notify us if they would prefer that their child/children is/are not included in any of the student’s work.

Nursery parents have already signed permissions for this as part of enrolment.

Please be reassured  that the students will be upholding the SSSC Codes of Practice (2016) in order to maintain professional standards and quality practice throughout their placement.

Please contact Mrs Webb if you have any questions.

Late Collection

A polite reminder to all parents that Out of School Care closes at 5.45pm.

All children MUST be collected and out of the ELCC building by 5.45pm for insurance purposes.

There will be an additional charge of £4.40 for each child collected after 5.45pm.

Thank you for your cooperation.
