Well Done everyone! We have managed to raise a fabulous £561.
On the 11th November 2014 the children of Heartsease Primary Academy created a people poppy in aid of Remembrance Day.
We even appeared on BBC Look East
At Heartsease we are going to be taking part in Anti-Bullying Week. During this week children nationwide work on what bullying is, identify how we can prevent it and understand what they need to do if they experience bullying. This is an essential part of the children’s learning and will be taught through the curriculum subjects.
Many thanks to all who helped organise and run the summer fete on Saturday (7th June). The weather was not kind to us, but the hard work that had gone into the event was obvious to all.
Many thanks also to those who braved the weather to attend and support the fete.
Many thanks to all those parents who responded to the parent survey. There were 159 responses in total, which is excellent.
There were, of course, a range of opinions in answer to each question but the main thrust of the responses was very supportive of the school in its work with the pupils. For example, 153 replies agreed with the statement ‘My child feels safe at this school’ and 151 agreed with ‘This school helps my child to develop skills in communication, reading, writing and mathematics’.
Communication with parents was an issue flagged up in 32 replies. As part of the response to this, the school website is in the process of being updated.
A fuller response to the parent survey will feature here soon.
There have been an increasing number of accidents on the site caused by children riding bikes and scooters inside the school gates.
Children may bring bikes to school and leave them in the cycle racks. However they must not be ridden anywhere on the school premises. Please note that scooters should not be brought onto the school site. Any scooters left on the school site during the school day will be removed. I am sure you understand that the site is very busy at the start and end of the day and the path is very narrow, therefore these measures are necessary to ensure the safety of the children.
Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
