Where children learn, achieve and enjoy success

On behalf of the children, parents, staff and governors, I would like to welcome you to Old Heath Community Primary School and to our website. Our school is located on the outskirts of Colchester town centre at the junction of Old Heath and Abbots Road (CO2 8DD).

Welcome back everyone for Part 2 of the Autumn Term! I hope you all had a fantastic half term and enjoyed the last beautiful days of ‘warmth and sunshine’! We have several things all on the go at the moment;

I have two of the original four ‘Prospective Parents Visits’ for Early Years September 2019 left in the diary; Wednesday 31st October at 1.45pm  and Monday 5th November at 1.45pm. Just contact school on 794334 and book a slot with Mrs White in the School Office.

Mrs Ford has organised Early Years ‘Stay & Play’ dates for those parents/grandparents of current Early Years children who are free to stay for a little bit on Friday mornings to see what Early Years get up to! The dates are all Fridays ~ 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd and 30th November, from 9-9.30am.

The ‘Whole School Flu Immunisation’ programme takes place on Tuesday 30th October.

The Royal British Legion’s ‘Poppy Appeal’ has arrived in school. The Y6 will be organising the ‘donation’ sale at play times and lunchtimes.

We are also well on with the organising list for Pudsey Bear Friday 16th November. Currently the children have organised at least 12 plus activities ~ so posters will start appearing!

‘Braiswicks’ our school photographer is due on Friday 2nd November. Big smiles and smart uniform needed! (Y4 swimmers will be photographed before swimming!)
