Heronshaw School Newsletter
Welcome Letter September 2016
Welcome From Mrs Saunders-Short - Headteacher
Welcome back after your summer break and welcome to the new children in foundation. We are all really looking forward to the start of a new year and watching all the children grow, learn and develop. There are lots of things happening this half term so don’t forget to look out for updates. This year our updates will come in many forms: This new style of newsletter will be just one. There is a new app that we are launching at our parents meetings and it will keep you all up to date with the latest information. We will still be using the school website, Twitter, texting and emailing. You will find this year that we will, wherever possible, not be sending home paper letters. So it is more important than ever that you ensure we have the correct phone numbers and email address so you don't miss out on up-and-coming events. Please see the office ASAP if you need to change any of these details. The website also includes many key documents and policies that are available to you all, as well as achievements of the school.
We continue to operate an open-door policy, and are always happy to discuss any concerns you have on a daily basis, so please feel free to come in and talk to teachers and all staff. We want to make your child’s schooling a positive experience.
We also offer teachers' school email address to any parents, this is to support you in communication with the school. As I am sure you are aware teachers are very busy with the children on a daily basis, so please allow a couple of days for a reply, any urgent concerns, please email the office or speak with the class teacher directly.
I am looking forward to working with you all in this coming year.
As many of you are aware we offer a huge range of clubs every half term, and this term's clubs are now due to start (see our website if you have not got dates and times please, rather than keep calling the office), so we ask if you have taken a place on a club please ensure that you make full use of it because it does mean someone else has not been able to have the place. See the website to look at the range available. Please ensure all clubs are paid for by Friday 16th September. Foundation will have the opportunity to join clubs after the first half term.
