Letter home to parents – Spring Break

27th March 2018

Dear Parent/Carer,

I am writing to remind you that school will close for the Spring break on Thursday, 29th March 2018 and will re-open again on Monday, 16th April at the usual time.  School is also closed on Monday, 7th May which is a bank holiday.  School closure details can always be found in the school newsletter or on the school website.

You will have seen as you drive in to the school site that we have a dedicated parent parking bay if you wish to drop off or pick up your child from school. Please do not park on any areas with double yellow lines, even for short periods and particularly not in the disabled bays unless you are visiting school and hold a blue badge or you are pickup up a student with a disability.

Please could I also take this opportunity to remind you that students are not allowed to use mobile phones once on school site, this includes immediately before and after school and I would appreciate if you could reinforce this message with your child.

We have been informed by Halton Transport that there have been some slight changes to the school bus services from 9th April 2018.

  • Service 70 Heath – Sandymoor – no change
  • Service J23 – renumbered 73
  • Service 73 to operate one morning and one afternoon journey (see the timetable on the school website and in our school newsletter.)

For your reference activity day will be fast upon on us when we return and letters will be with you very shortly for your child to choose where they would like to go.

My Principal’s surgery takes place between 4 pm and 7 pm on Thursday, 24th May 2018 – If you wish to make an appointment please email my PA Marie Wadsworth on mwadsworth@heathschool.org.uk or call her on the school number.

I am currently still in discussion with the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) with regard to moving forward with the demolition of the old building and landscaping and I will update you with more information as soon as it is available.

I would like to wish you all a relaxing Spring Break. Those students who are attending revision sessions in school during the break have been informed in advance of the dates and times of the sessions and a schedule is attached to this letter for your information.  Reception will be staffed each day should you need to contact the school for any reason.

Yours sincerely

J Jardine
