Welcome back! We hope that you all had an enjoyable Summer. The children have all settled quickly and we are working hard to make this year our most successful year ever. Last year our main successes were:
Improved behaviour, Improved attendance and improved rates of progress across all year groups.
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome back Miss Hawksworth after her maternity leave and to welcome Miss Dodd, Miss Wasa and Miss Smith who is our specialist Music and Drama teacher.
In order to secure further improvements we ask for your continued support; please read with your children every day and ensure that they return their homework on time and please ensure that holidays are organised outside of school time. If you require a copy of our key policies e.g. Behaviour and Attendance, these can be viewed on our Schools’ Website, alternatively you can view a copy in the Schools’ main entrance.
Thank you for you continued support...
We always encourage children to read books outside as well as inside school. We have arranged with Kirklees Mobile Library to visit Healey School every Wednesday starting on the 5th June for 7 weeks. Children wanting to join the library will be given a form for you to fill in, and then they can take books home. The library will be here from 9:30 am until after school so that older children and parents can use it as well. Initially this will be for Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and children in year 3. We then want to extend it to the rest of Key Stage 2 next September.
We will be holding a baking course for parents on Thursdays starting on Thursday 6th June. This will be for 6 weeks and runs from 1.15pm to 3pm. Please see the Main Reception if you are interested.
We have a new date for the Maths Share Afternoon. The last one was called off because of the snow, so the new date is Friday 5th June from 1.15pm to 3.00 pm. Come into your child's classroom to share maths for an afternoon! Please see the Main Reception if you are interested.
We are running an eight week course every Tuesday starting on Tuesday 21st May on managing children's behaviour. They run from 1.00pm to 3.00pm. Please see the Main Reception if you are interested.
We have recently introduced a new maths scheme - Rainbow Maths! Your children have started bringing home maths test sheets with the colours of the rainbow. Every child in school starts at red and is tested twice a week until they get only two or fewer questions wrong, in which case they move up to the next colour. We would like to ask that all parents support their child's learning at home by spending time on Rainbow Maths together. If you need spare sheets, there are copies in Parent Zone that you can download.
There are three ways to apply:
If you need any help, please talk with Mrs Kaye.
Family Numeracy sessions are up and running, they have been a huge success and have been particularly well attended.
Maths challenge Day. Years 2-6 took part in Maths Challenge Day on February 26th. Children were given some very tricky and thought provoking puzzles that needed a lot of mathematical creativity. They also had to use team working skills to solve them. It is fair to say that the children really enjoyed themselves!
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.
Children In Need. We raised £290.54. Well done everyone who took part!
