As some of you may be aware, I resigned from my position as Headteacher at Healey Junior, Infant and Nursery School in April this Year. It has been an absolute pleasure working with you and your children at Healey School and I am sincerely grateful for the huge amount of support that you have given to me over the past 4 years (almost) and your continued efforts to support the Schools Improvements. We have achieved a huge amount in a relatively short space of time and school leaders have ensured that everything is securely in place for future success.
Mr Feltham will become Acting Headteacher with the Support of Mr I Richardson (NLE and Headteacher at Batley Parish School) and Ms J Lunn (NLE and Headteacher at Field Lane School) Both Batley Parish and Field Lane are ‘Outstanding’ Schools and Healey School will benefit hugely from their support!
Finally, I wish you every success as you continue to support the school and thank you again for your tireless support and contributions – Well Done! Good Luck!
I always regarded school as a present that you were sent to for being young - James Lovelock, scientist.
As you know, we were recently visited by Ofsted. We have now received, are are very pleased by, the results of the inspection. In summary our overall effectiveness is "Requiring Improvement" with "Good" for "Leadership and Management" and "Behaviour and Safety of Pupils". The Ofsted report should go onto the Ofsted site over the summer holidays. To see all our Ofsted reports visit http://www.ofsted.gov.uk/inspection-reports/find-inspection-report/provider/ELS/107638
Year 3 are great Explorers! As part of the current Topic of "Explorers", they went to visit Forbidden Corner in North Yorkshire on Monday 23rd June. Started as a private Folly it has been open to the public for many years and a favourite destination for children from Healey School. The children split into small groups, each with a member of staff, and tried to find all the areas of the site! After exploring underground mausoleums, passageways and chambers; castlements and mazes; magical gardens with frog fountains; being ambushed by water squirting stepping stones; stroking horses and looking at squirrel eaten pinecones they all took the chance to spend some money in the shop. The weater was perfect, not too hot but warm enough to dry off after getting wet. A perfect day!
The NSPCC recently wote to the school thanking us for our fundraising efforts during the sponsored sports. We raised £969.80.
We entered two teams for the Drax Cricket Competition.
On Tuesday 3rd June we entered a team of 10 from years 5 and 6. They found themselves against very stiff opposition, winning two games out of 6. Even so, they still played with skill and determination.
On Tuesday May 20th we entered a team of 9 children, all from the after-school cricket club in years 3 and 4. They won 5 out of 7 games, getting better and better through the day, winning the last match by a margin of 60 runs out of 32 balls! The children played with gusto, even as they started to flag at the end of a very active day. Despite the fantastic performance, unfortunately we did not get through to the next round.
Both teams were a great credit both to the school and themselves, playing together as a team, supporting and encouraging each other and being very sporting with opposing teams .
We would like to thank Ms Grant and Mr Ayres for taking and encouraging the children on the two days.
Our newly created extracurricular football team recently played Heckmondwike Primary School. There were two exciting games; we drew 3-3 in the first and won 4-2 in the second, an overall win! Kashaan Qasir in Year 6 was awarded Man of the Match after scoring a hat trick but a good performance was given by all. We will have a return match at Healey School the week after the SATs. Your support is greatly appreciated. Thank you to Mr Naylor, Mr Brayshaw and James Rourke of White Rose Soccer Academy who have trained our team !
We run regular courses for parents. From the start of the September term we are offering two courses: help with English and managing children's behaviour.
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.
