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).
Summer term starting notes!!
Hopefully prospective parents have received their Reception/Early Years letters from Essex County Council and our letter welcoming families to our school. We are waiting to receive all the returned confirmation of places by Friday 27th April and then we will start to send out the next set of letters and information for transition dates for the second half term.
Mrs Ford has organised the dates for the current Early Years’ class Stay and Play sessions; Friday 27th April, Friday 4th May, Friday 11th May and Friday 18th May. The sessions start at 9 and parents, grandparents etc of Early Years children are welcome to stay and play with their child and hear a little more information on the learning that is taking place in the class. The sessions finish at 9.30am.
There is a lot happening this term; we have just completed Bikeability Level Training for Y4, there are the Y5 & Y6 residentials to Grosvenor Hall and YHA Helmsley respectively, as well various day trips in the planning stages for other classes. May is the big month for statutory assessments for Y2 and Y6! We have the OHSA’s Summer Fair on Saturday 30th June. I will try to keep all events updated on the website, though if I miss something you may find an emergency email winging to you via Parentmail ~ so please make sure you are signed into and receiving information via the service.
