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

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.
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.
