Premier Sports are running an Adult Boot-Camp Session on Wednesday 4th May @ 8.45am – 9.30am.  £2 per adult.  The sessions will be outdoor so appropriate footwear and clothing needs to be worn.  These sessions will run on a trial basis initially. It will depend upon how much support we get for this as to whether these sessions continue on a weekly basis.   ​

​Cashless system (Parent Pay)

​Quick Reminder that we are now 'cashless' ​so any school trips will eed to be paid for via Parent Pay. You can spread the cost and pay weekly if you wish.​

Digital Passports for our KS2 Children
Our KS2 children are now working towards their Digital Passport, a web based app that helps children learn about becoming a good digital citizen. Whilst some of the learning takes place through special school assemblies for the introduction of each new module and specific tasks and activities completed in the classroom. The children then login in to their Digital Passport with their own user name and password and complete the accompanying games, bettering their score each time they visit, and working towards digital badges.
School Facebook Page

​Our school's new Facebook page is now up and running and proving to be popular with over 100 parents currently visiting.

The page will provide up to date information about events at school, important reminder,s and links to a variety of help pages and information which we think may be useful to parents. 

Please join us by looking up the Richard Heathcote Community Primary School and liking our page, to let us know you are on board

Thank you
E-Safety Group Meeting 06/11/2015

Our E-Safety Group meeting was held in school with representation from each class; two children from each year groups 1-6, staff, and Governors. We are still hoping to recruit a parent representative, so if you are interested please contact the school. We shared lots of new ideas of how we could involve and inform all of our school community and discussed the way forward for the coming year

Premier Sports Website Problems

We have addressed your concerns with regard to booking your children on the Premier Sports Clubs via the website to them. They are looking into it. 

If you book on-line you will receive an email to confirm your child has a place.  If you are booking within 48 hours of the club starting, you may need to pay at the school office.  If this happens, the price you pay will be the on-line price.  We will continue to monitor this.  Please give us your feedback after Christmas when the next block of clubs are advertised.  Many thanks.

Year 3, 4, and 5 - Connecting Around the World using Technology
Some of our KS2 children have been busy participating in this year's Global Read aloud, where children from all over the world read the same book and share their thoughts and ideas about the characters, the storyline and the author. We have connected with a number of schools using blogs, Padlet and email.
