Slippery Conditions (posted on 23.11.2015)

Winter is now truly upon us and unfortunately this means cold weather and slippery conditions caused by leaves, frost and icy patches on the ground.  With this in mind, EHPA would like to remind you of our Snow and Ice Policy which can also be found under the ‘School Policies’ section.

As usual, every effort will be made by the school to ensure safe pathways are cleared or treated around the site following the priority gritting routes set out in the policy, however we are unable to completely clear the school grounds of snow and ice.  With this in mind we ask that all adults take responsibility for their own safety and that of children whilst on the school site, including parents and visitors.  We encourage children to come to school in wellies / boots in wintery conditions and bring their school shoes to change in to at school.  This is particularly important as where possible we aim to allow the children to go outside at break and lunchtime.

Please be aware that East Herrington may have different weather conditions to those at your home address so please take note of forecasted conditions and ensure that children are dressed accordingly.

Children in Need 2015 (posted on 18.11.2015)

Children in Need was held on Friday 13th November 2015.  This year, the school council organised a “name the bear” competition for all children in Reception to Year 6.  Each class was given a Pudsey Bear and the children that wanted to take part were asked to make a donation and choose a name for the bear in their classroom.  The name that was chosen out of the hat was given to the bear and that child was able to keep him.  This year the competition was very popular and we raised a fantastic £200.00 for Children in Need – thank you!
