Heybrook Primary and Nursery

Heybrook Primary and Nursery School

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

As you will know, the school is now closed to most children. Vulnerable children and children of key workers who can't be at home are now attending school. If you fall under this category and want to attend school, please ring the school. For these children, school will open from 8am with breakfast club and the school day will be from 9am -3:15pm. Reception and Nursery children will be based at the Nursery (on South Street) and the Nursery is open from 8:45am. As you can imagine, the phone lines have been very busy so please bear with us or email your question to office@heybrook.org

Online Learning

For children who aren’t attending school, we will be providing a full online learning timetable for all children with similar lessons to the children in school. You will have been sent a username and password via text so you can log on via zoom. More detail on your child’s timetable can be found below. All children will also receive resources to work at home (whiteboard, pens etc.) and a reading book.

If you do not have device, please ring the school and add your name to the waiting list. However, we do not have a device to give to every child in the school. The government has given us 65 laptops and we are using our other devices to give to as many children as we can. As the government has told us, we are giving them to free school meals children first and will try our very best. There are 660 children and we don't have enough for everyone. 

If we aren't able to give you a device, we will provide work packs which can be collected from the school each Friday. These will cover the same work as the online lessons. If you are on the mobile network EE, Three, Sky, Tesco or Virgin, we can provide extra mobile data so lessons can be done via a phone. Please email or ring the school for more details or email office@heybrook.org. There are also lessons for children every morning on the CBBC channel on all TVs. Someone who works with your child will phone you once a week to see how you are getting on and you can ask that your child's teacher rings you if you need extra help or extra resources.

 Free School Meals

If you are eligible for benefits based Free School Meals (not universal free school meals which all children in Reception, year 1 and year 2 receive), the government has not restarted the voucher scheme but will instead provide a food hamper each fortnight. If this changes, we will let you know. These contain bread, pasta, vegetables, cheese, butter and other things as well as menu of things to make with the ingredients. These can be ordered and collected from the school each fortnight. Please ring or email office@heybrook.org. If you think you might be eligible for free school meals, please collect a form from the school office.

 We know this is a very difficult time for everyone and we are grateful for your support and patience whilst we get everything set up. if you need any support or help, Mrs Ahmad, Mr Doyle, Ms Berry and myself are available either by ringing or emailing office@heybrook.org or if you have a safeguarding concern, safeguarding@heybrook.org.

Best wishes,

Toni Moore
