Ramadan - Fasting information for Y5 &Y6 parents

Ramadan - Fasting information for Y5 &Y6 parents

Dear Parent/Carer

 

As the holy month of Ramadan will start on w/c 12th April we appreciate that some of our older children will be wanting to Fast. It is extremely important that we have parent/carer consent for children who will be fasting.

 

While we understand children will want to Fast we would advise that children below Y5 keep their Fast during the weekend as when they are in school they are very active and at this time of year there a lots of things happening.

 

For Health and Safety reasons if any child becomes unwell during their Fast we will contact parents for permission to give them food and drink. Parents may be advised to take their child home. On a hot day we will also be asking those children who are fasting to stay indoors/in the shade.

Virtual Parents Evening 30th & 31st March

Virtual Parents Evening 30th & 31st March

Dear Parents

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic we have been unable to hold face to face parents evening meetings.  We have missed meeting parents, and we want to ensure that until we can meet parents face to face we have a virtual system to discuss pupils progress.

Therefore the school has introduced a new intuitive and easy to use online appointment booking system called school cloud. This allows you to choose your own appointment times with teachers and you will receive an email confirming your appointments.

School cloud allows parents to have a video consultation with their childs class teacher, and we are confident that parents will find this system simple and easy to use and we welcome any feedback.

We will hold our virtual parent evening meetings on Tuesday 30th March and Wednesday 31st March.  Parents will be sent a letter detailing all the information needed to make appointments, along with parents unique login code.  Nursery parents will be able to speak to Mrs Adlington on Wednesday 31st March

If you have any questions or queries please contact the main school office on 0114 2442189 or email enquiries@highhazelsacademy.org.uk. 

Many thanks for your continued support

Important Information Returning to School - Monday 8th March

Important Information Returning to School - Monday 8th March

Dear Parents/Carers

I am writing to inform you about some key arrangements for our school opening on 8th March 2021. You will be already aware of the government's announcement, that all pupils will be expected to attend school from next Monday 8th March. This, I am sure, is very positive news for our whole school community. Attendance will be required at school and will be monitored as it has been in the past. Unauthorised absence will be treated as such and followed up accordingly.

The most up to date Government guidance means several important changes to how the school runs. Most changes remain as per our wider opening of schools in September.  In particular:

● When pupils are in school, they will remain within their class group bubble. We will be avoiding any non-essential mixing of year groups;

● Arrivals, break times, lunchtimes and end of school will be staggered to minimise the interaction between year groups. Late children will be asked to wait at the main gate on Fisher Lane and a member of staff will come to assist when all year groups are in the building;

● Year groups will be separated within the school wherever possible so that pupils have access to a minimal number of classrooms and use of communal areas is strictly controlled;

● All areas of the school will receive more frequent cleaning and there will be hand sanitiser available throughout the school. We will continue to encourage children to wash their hands regularly and promote ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’ for any sneezes or coughs;

● Sport and Physical Education will predominantly take place outdoors and contact sports will not be played; pupils will be expected to come to school in their P.E kit on the days they are scheduled to have P.E.  Listed below are allocated PE days for each year group

FS2 Garnet - Thursday                                                    Y5 Ametrine – Monday & Tuesday

FS2 Opal – Wednesday                                                 Y5 Alexandrite – Tuesday & Thursday

FS2 Topaz – Wednesday                                                Y5 Quartz – Tuesday & Thursday

Y1 – Wednesday

World Book Day - 4th March 2021

World Book Day - 4th March 2021

On Thursday 4th March we will be celebrating world book day a bit differently, however it will still be a day where children can celebrate their favourite author and books.

To celebrate this day children can dress up as their favourite book character for their live lessons.  We would really like children to make their own costumes and we will be looking for the most imaginative costume.

We would also like parents to join in, and they can do this by sharing a traditional story that they grew up with.
