In what has been a very unusual and uncertain couple of months, Heath Primary School has remained open to the children of key workers and we have been proud to have been able to have been able to play our work by supporting these families.
At the time of writing this column, the school is making preparations to welcome back children in Nursery, Reception and Years One and Six. We are very fortunate to have very large grounds at the school, and we will be fully utilising our outstanding outdoor facilities to support learning over the coming months. We have a large, established wooded area, complete with an outdoor classroom, which is used for Forest Schools activities, and a beautiful pond area that has its own dipping platform.
Our school garden and eco-greenhouse are coming back to life as the seeds that the children have planted start to germinate, and as part of the school garden, we have large animal enclosures that house our chickens, ducks and rabbits. We have recently added two further outdoor classrooms to our field areas, which provide plenty of space for outdoor lessons in the warmer weather.
We currently have spaces available for our September Nursery and Reception classes. All of our Early Years classes benefit from having large classrooms and extensive outdoor areas. With outdoor learning being at the heart of our curriculum, our Nursery and Reception classes are able to take advantage of all of the outdoor areas around the school, as well as their own outdoor areas, which we continue to invest in and develop.
If you have a child that is due to start Nursery or Reception in September and are interested in finding out more, you can find out more information by visiting the school website or by speaking to a member of our admin team on 01473 622806.
