My name is Mr Feltham and I am very proud to be the Acting Headteacher at Healey Primary School. Healey is a fantastic place for pupils to learn and for staff to work. We are very excited about the forthcoming year with lots of new initiatives. First and foremost however, I would like to congratulate the class of 2014. The SATS results were the best SATS results ever at Healey. The challenge has been set for this year’s Year 6 to continue this success.
You may have noticed that over the summer our building project for the Early Years has finally come to completion. We now have a brand new reception class and a brand new Early Years Outdoor Learning area that both Nursery and Reception children can access. To celebrate this achievement, the official opening was attended by the Deputy Mayor.
This year Healey is looking forward to introducing the brand new national curriculum. To ensure parents are fully up to date with what is happening I have organised an Open Evening for parents and children to attend. We always welcome parent’s views and we are very happy to hear from you. Look out for the Parents Evening dates.
Finally I would like to thank all the staff for their fantastic support this year. They work tirelessly to support Healy’s pupils learning and I could not do this job without them.
There will be a collection tray available at each performance for donations towards our school fund. The children will have worked very hard and it would be great if you could come and support our school.
The children’s Christmas parties will be held on the following days and donations of food will be very welcome on the day. The children can come in their own clothes on their party day. (Crisps, pakoras, bhajis, samosas, buns, bread sticks, dips, crackers, melon, cheese, grapes, carrot sticks etc).
Healey School are pleased to be holding the Christmas Fayre 2014 on December 4th from 3.30pm-4.30pm.
At this event we will be having a stall for toys, and bric a brac so wish to ask if you could please contribute some items to make this a success. There will of course be a tombola and chocolate tombola, any contributions for these will also be gratefully received. Items for any of the stalls can be sent into school any day from Wednesday 26th November. Items can be left with Mrs Garforth.
As usual there will also be a home baking stall. Donations of buns, biscuits cakes etc should be brought to school the morning of the 3rd or 4th and can be left with Mrs Garforth. Any containers should be named to ensure they can be returned to their rightful owner.
Also, if you feel you would like to donate a prize, gift or any chocolate for the raffle we would also be very grateful. This can be brought into school from Wednesday 26th November.
Now all there is to say is a big THANK YOU in advance for all your contributions and to wish each and every one of you a Happy Happy Christmas.
This year Healey JI&N have found a great way to raise money for free, simply by shopping online through a website called easyfundraising (www.easyfundraising.org.uk). Full details are included in the letter that we sent home with your child.
The Deputy Mayor of Kirklees, Cllr Paul Kane, opened the new Early Years Unit on 21st October. The ribbon cutting took place at 09:15. The Early Years Unit represents a huge investment in time and effort by staff and governors at the school and allows a much more integrated curriculum and learning environment for the children.
Using the button above that says 'log in' on it, children will be able to access their virtual learning environment from home, they will be able to safely email other students and members of staff, as well as complete homework and upload pictures and videos.
