Letter from the Co Headteachers
If you come to visit Heber School we hope you are struck by the calm, purposeful atmosphere. You will see happy children who are eager to learn and whose behaviour and attitude to learning reflect our three key values of thoughtfulness, resilience and responsibility. This was appreciated by Ofsted in our most recent inspection who reported that the school’s work in promoting pupil’s personal development and welfare was outstanding. Sitting alongside our commitment to pupil welfare is a constant and relentless focus on the progress of each and every child in the school.
Our highly experienced stable staff includes three teachers in receipt of ‘Excellent Teacher awards’ from the Local Authority. We employ specialist Art, Music and PE teachers and have dedicated Art and Music rooms. Concerts and exhibitions are regular features of school life.
80+% of our children consistently leave our Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception) with a ‘Good Level of Development’. This was well above the National average of 69%. We still have vacancies in the Nursery for 2017 / 2018. Please contact the school if you are interested in a place.
The percentage of children achieving ‘at greater depth’ at the end of Year 6 is and has been consistently above the National average. Last year for instance 13% of Heber pupils achieved a greater depth of understanding across Reading, Writing and Maths. The national figure was 5%. We have a few places in KS2. Please contact the school if you are interested in a place.
We currently have vacancies in the Nursery as well as in some KS2 classes. If you are looking for a place for your child please contact the school office and arrange an appointment to be shown around the school.
If you would like to visit the school, please contact the school office and arrange an appointment to be shown around the school by one of the Co Headteachers.
