Working Together to Move Forward With HOPE

 

‘Moving Forward Together With Hope’

Welcome to our school website, we hope this gives you a flavour of the exciting and wonderful things we learn together in school as well as providing you with all of the information you need about our school.

Please contact our School Office team via admin@whitbyheath.cheshire.sch.uk if you have any questions or would like any further information. 

 

WORKING TOGETHER TO KEEP EVERYONE IN OUR SCHOOL FAMILY SAFE

*UPDATE 25/3/22*

From after the Easter holidays, drop off for all classes will be between 8.45am and 9am and collection time will be from 3pm for all classes. 

Drop off and collection will remain in the same locations for all classes i.e. EYFS via their class gates for Oak and Elm classes, Year 1 classes via the car park entrance from Clydesdale and Year 2 to Year 6 classes inclusive, via the main playground. 

Where parents and carers are collecting children from more than one gate, we ask that parents/carers collect their youngest child/ren first before collecting from older classes, class teachers will remain with children until they are collected. 

In the interests of safety and to ensure staff can safely dismiss all children, we ask that parents and carers maintain their distance from class lines for dismissal and wait for their child to be handed over from their class teacher as we currently do. 

 

How you can help:

What to do if your child develops symptoms of COVID-19

The main symptoms of COVID-19 are the recent onset of:

✓new continuous cough and/or

✓high temperature and/or

✓a loss of, or change in, normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia)

 

If your child develops any of these symptoms, then arrangements should be made for them to take a PCR test as soon as possible. Your child should remain at home while awaiting the PCR test result. Please note that we are also sending pupils home if we believe they have a symptom requiring a PCR test.

Please keep us informed of the result of the test by emailing help@whitbyheath.cheshire.sch.uk

 

What to do if your child is generally unwell

If your child is unwell with general symptoms such as a sore throat, runny nose, and/or headache/muscles aches, they should not attend school to avoid spreading infection within the school setting. We will send children home if we believe they present a risk of infection to other students.

 

Please contact school via help@whitbyheath.cheshire.sch.uk and inform us your child tests positive on an LFD or PCR test

It is really important you let us know if your child has COVID-19 so we can monitor the number of children with COVID-19 across the school.

 

Reminders

Considerate Parking and Road Safety

Please be mindful of our local residents and other families dropping off and collecting from school and, wherever possible, walk to and from school. If it is necessary to drive, park away from the gate areas and not across local residents properties. Please also bear in mind our informal one-way system at drop off and collection times.

Attendance

Please contact our school office by email or telephone if your child is absent for any reason or wish to discuss your child’s attendance with school staff.

Guidance concerning holidays taken in school term time is clear - absence will only be authorised in exceptional circumstances. We are not able to grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances. An exceptional circumstance is usually a one-off, unique situation that is of significant emotional, educational or spiritual value which outweighs the loss of teaching time.

Please avoid booking holidays, appointments or visits during term-time. Please bear this guidance in mind when making bookings for any holidays. Please also be advised that where medical appointments must be taken during the school day, parents and carers will be asked to provide appointment letters for school records. 

Silent Solution 55

IF YOU NEED CALL 999 FROM A MOBILE

If making a sound would put you or someone else in danger and the operator cannot decide whether an emergency service is needed, your call will be transferred to the Silent Solution system. The Silent Solution is a police system to help people who are unable to speak, but who genuinely need police assistance. You will hear an automated police message, which lasts for 20 seconds and begins with ‘you are through to the police’. It will ask you to press 55 to be put through to police call management. 

Please see the attached Silent Solution 55 information sheet for further details.

Free School Meals

Free School Meals does not include Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM) where all government funded schools offer free school meals to pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.   If your child was receiving UIFSM but you believe you may be eligible for Free School Meals please apply here https://www.cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk/residents/education-and-learning/school-meals.aspx

 

ParentPay

Thank you to everyone who has activated their ParentPay account. We now use this system to send out whole school letters via email and for payments for both dinners and activities.

 

If you do not have a bank account, payments can be made at any Pay Point outlet. If you require a Pay Point card, please contact the school office to request one.
