    Farewells and New Beginnings

    As we look forward to the summer holidays and a new school year we would like to thank staff, children, parents and governors for their hard work and dedication to Hey with Zion during these unprecident times. Sadly, we are saying goodbye to one member of staff; Miss Cooper as she is moving on to pastures new. We would like to express our thanks to her for her dedication and hard work, she will be missed by staff and children alike.

    We also say farewell to our year 6 children. It has been a hard year for them and something that none of us have experienced or expected. They have had a very successful partial year and we would like to thank Mrs Patterson, Mrs Light and Mr Atkin for all their hard work. Our best wishes go with the children as they move on to a new and very exciting stage in their education. We are very proud of you!

    We also warmly welcome Mrs Kelly in to Reception/Year 1. Enjoy your first term with us.

    Finally, we hope that everyone has a fantastic summer holiday and that we all return in September refreshed and ready to do our best again!

    Snow Procedures

    In the event of snow parents are asked to follow the procedures below:
    • If school is to remain open, this will posted on the website as soon as the decision is taken, usually before
    • Will I be advised if school is closed?
    A text message will be sent to the first contact of every child in school. In addition, the website will be
    updated. This will happen as soon as the decision is taken to close, usually before 7.30am
    Please make sure school have your up to date mobile number at all times.
    • Do I need to contact school?
    If you decide not to bring your child to school please let us know as soon as you can, otherwise there is no
    need to contact us. The decision as to whether it is safe to come in to school is entirely up to you.
    • Will after school clubs be cancelled?
    Yes. Parents will be notified but as a rule, after school clubs will not go ahead in the event of snow.
    • When should I collect my child?
    Please collect your child at normal time unless we ask you to collect them earlier – usually by a notice on
    the website or a text. If you are delayed in collecting your child please advise the office as soon as
    possible. A member of staff will remain in school with any children who have not been collected until a
    parent arrives.
    • Impact on the school day
    When school remains open on a snowy day, we may not have a full complement of staff and so children
    may be moved from their usual class. Please be assured that children will still be taught appropriate
    lessons for their level.
