Local Support

The Holme Valley South Emergency Hardship Fund, in partnership with Longley Farm and Holmfirth Tech, will be open for applications from today.

The purpose of the fund is to support those residents living within the Holme Valley South district ward, who have an immediate financial need as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic.  Specifically, the grant is aimed at those who find themselves unable to cover basic necessities, such as food, heating, housing, or childcare, that cannot otherwise be addressed by the existing benefits system or the various Covid-19 government support packages.

Details of the Hardship Fund can be found here:



Key Stage 2 pupils previously participated in a series of mindfulness sessions led by Seth Foster from the Pennine Sports Partnership.

A home learning update will appear shortly. The aim of this is to provide some educational guidance. However, the most important guidance now is looking after each other in any way we can. This is the most important learning of all!
