After a long and sunny holiday, I am delighted to welcome you all back to Healey School. The school has benefitted from many improvements over the Summer holidays and I am looking forward to enjoying the positive impact that they have on our children. Year 6 children now have access to both a girls and a boys toilet which means that they will spend more time learning and less time walking the 1/4 mile round trip to the nearest toilet and back! The main office has been divided into two separate rooms which means that our Key Stage 2 children will now have access to a learning intervention room - the new room will also serve as a meeting room for parents and governors when required. The school dining hall has been decorated and improved to include a servery for school meals and my office has now been divided into two so that Mrs Bradshaw (deputy headteacher) has an office of her own. In addition to this, we would like to welcome Mr Naylor (Key Stage 2 Leader), Mrs Medley (Year 5 Teacher), Miss Gharda (Year 5), Mr Feltham (Year 4 Teacher), Miss Davies (Year 1 Teacher) Mr Saxton (Music Specialist) and our new ETA’s are Mr Brayshaw, Miss Downes, Miss Lees and Mr Blackburn
Your child has been sent home with a letter outlining a free 3 week Literacy Course for parents where you can refresh on your Literacy skills and learn what your child is learning in school. Please either fill in the slip on the letter or see the main office. It starts on 27th March at 1.15-3.15 PM.
Your child has a letter with a £1 World Book Day Token and a list of free special books that it can be used with. Most booksellers will honour the scheme. In school there will be a book swap day on Thursday 6th March when a child can bring in a good quality book that they have enjoyed but no longer want, and swap it for another book.
Our next Parents evening is Thursday 6th March. Please complete the letter sent home with your child and return to their teacher as soon as possible.
It has been brought to our attention that a video of Healey School’s Nativity performance has been posted on Facebook. All parents have signed an agreement that they can record their own children but not post any content that includes other children. If you have posted anything on Facebook or other social networks that include children besides your own please remove it as soon as possible. Thankyou.
One of our pupils, Libby in Key stage 2, won a nation wide competition run by Capita to design a Christmas card to be used by the company. She faced very stiff competition to win a Kindle. Tom Platts from Capita presented the Kindle in front of the school assembly on Friday 6th December. Here is Libby with her Kindle and winning design.
The March 3rd Inset Day has changed to 10th March.
School dinners are now £1.90 per day (£9.50 per week) please use the new Parent Pay system we have in place. If there are any problems please call in to see Mrs Stephen in the office.
Following the Charlie Taylor report on improving attendance, the Government has increased the amount stated on penalty notices from £50 to £60 (£100 to £120 where the penalty notice is paid after 28 days.) At Healey School, attendance is still ‘GOOD’ so thank you and well done to everyone who makes it to school on time every day.
From 8th July 2013 Healey School been using an online payments system for parents to pay any bills with the school. Your child will have had a individual letter detailing the arrangement, including their personal username and password. For details see https://www.parentpay.com/.
This is a copy of the original letter sent to all parents.
There are three ways to apply:
If you need any help, please talk with Mrs Kaye.
Free School Meals. The Government is giving money to schools to help children from lower income families. This funding is called the Pupil Premium. By registering for Free School Meals you can help school funding by £900 per child. In the past this money has been used very effectively by the school to improve results, for example by providing one-to-one mentoring for children and our very sucessful reading schemes. We have sent forms out with every child to help you register. For help or advice please call Joanne Kaye at the school on 01924 326386.
Parent Volunteers.We are looking for parents to come into school to help out with activities such as reading with children. This is an immensely important activity for the children and gives you the chance to see what happens within school. Please talk with Mrs Bradshaw.
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. Nelson Mandela
