It is hard to believe a whole year has passed since I took up my post as Head teacher of Heath Mount Primary School in September 2018. It has been a most incredibly rewarding time thanks to our superb staff and children and the support and encouragement given by you, our parents. There have been a huge number of achievements. I love being the head teacher at Heath Mount Primary and seeing the children develop and progress each day makes the jobs extremely rewarding. Reading the children’s reports and focussing on the positives as well as their next steps in learning was an absolute pleasure and I hope they have given you a true reflection of your child’s learning journey this year.
I would like to thank the Friends of Heath Mount Primary who have been working hard to raise funds to create extra opportunities for our children. The staff have worked exceptionally hard this year to ensure the children have achieved well across all areas of the curriculum and made good progress whilst being inspired, engaged as well as challenged. Developing children’s reading has had a fantastic impact on learning across school and we look forward to focusing on this further next year. We continue to work towards the targets set by Ofsted alongside other areas of development to ensure we provide the best education and learning experiences for our children.
I and the staff value the support you give your children at home with their reading, spellings and homework as well as ensuring the children have the things they need for additional visits. We also thank you for ensuring your children develop independence, have lovely manners, and follow our school values of Honesty, Equality Aspiration, Respect and Teamwork. We are very lucky that our school is a community who wants the best for each other and strives to move forward in an ever changing world whilst retaining our values.
The children make our school a truly remarkable place full of energy, smiles, laughter, excitement, tears and cut knees and most of all love. We are all very privileged to come to work each day and make a difference to the lives of your children and we never take that for granted. I wish you all a very happy summer holiday break no matter what adventures you are going on!
We are all very excited that in the Summer holiday as our school will be having a makeover. The school will be having a deep clean and key areas will be painted. The art room will be revamped and restocked. We are refurbishing the toilets on the top landing. The windows will be cleaned. We want to ensure that our school is ready and pristine for every one of our children.
The school website will keep you updated, please download ‘myschoolapp’ to access the website on your mobile phone.
Exciting times ahead! We look forward to seeing you all in September- don’t forget school starts back on Wednesday 4th September. We need your help to ensure every child is dressed in full uniform, including school shoes, ready to maintain our excellent attendance record and ready to embark on their next stage of their learning journey, your teachers will be refreshed and ready to welcome you into your new classes.
