Heath Primary School

We welcomed back children in our Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 classes on June 1st, joining the children from key worker families. Welcoming back a larger number of children in very different circumstances to normal has, of course, presented many challenges.

However, we are very lucky to have an amazingly dedicated set of staff who have worked hard to make it happen in time.

We are also fortunate to have very large grounds with outstanding outdoor learning facilities which we are able to use at a time when making the most of outdoor learning has never been more important. 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 full of life as the seeds that the children have planted are thriving in the warm weather, 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.

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 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 www.heathprimary.co.uk or by speaking to a member of our admin team on 01473 622806.
