Please the zoom links to the Year 8 Parents’ Evening on Tuesday 18th January 2022 here.
We have provision for a Parent Local Governor to be part of the Local Governing Body.
Parents and Carers are now invited to nominate and elect a new Parent Local Governor to join the Heartlands High School Local Governing Body. An elected Parent Local Governor must be a parent or a person who has parental responsibilities of a student registered at Heartlands High School.
The vision is for all our students to develop a commitment to learning; teaching students that effort is essential, achievement will carry them forward, active citizenship matters and that none of this can be achieved without the highest of aspirations.
The role of a Parent Local Governor is an exciting and important opportunity to take an active role in the governance of the school; enabling that vision to become a reality through ensuring high standards of achievement for all, contributing to strategic discussions and holding school leaders to account by monitoring school performance and ensuring money is well spent.
Closing date for nominations is 9.00 am on 20th January 2022

The DFE announced today that they are recommending face coverings to be used in secondary schools whilst Plan B is active. Below is the announcement from the Secretary of State for education made today. HHS will be adhering to this advice. Please ensure your child has a face covering for school from 5th January 2022 for testing and to return to lessons on 6th. A reminder you need to give permission for testing HERE
We have a rising number of children claiming exemption from face coverings. We remind you that exemption is applied to those who are likely to suffer severe distress or physical discomfort if they wear a mask. We will best protect each other if we all wear masks. Please email email@example.com if you believe your child to be exempt explaining why (even if you have done this before)
From today, Sunday 2 January, it is recommended that face coverings are worn in classrooms where pupils in year 7 and above are educated. The advice is short term only, to support pupils and teachers as they return to school this term and builds on the existing proportionate guidance that recommends face coverings for all adults in communal areas of all settings. We are updating our guidance to reflect this. The advice on face coverings in classrooms will be in place until Wednesday 26 January, when Plan B regulations are currently scheduled to expire, at which point it will be reviewed.

It was confirmed today that although the COVID threat in England remains high we will not be subject to any new restrictions prior to January 1st 2022. What happens in January remains to be seen. However we need to confirm arrangements for the new year as families and staff need to make plans to support the start of term. We will go ahead with our testing regime on the 5th January with a full return for all students to school on the 6th January 2022.
As a precaution we have already moved the Year 11 mock exams, we wrote to Year 11 families earlier in December to explain this. This letter can be found HERE
Even if increased restrictions are put in place in the new year I am not anticipating any Government mandated school closures. We are expecting a continuation of staff shortages and so closures at local level can not be ruled out. As always we will work as hard as we can and as strategically as we can to avoid this.
As we enter into the new term may I please ask you to;
It is a shared responsibility to keep COVID out of school. Please follow this advice to keep staff and students healthy and to keep school open.
On January 5th 2022 please send your child to school to test (times are below by year group) Students will come in, test, and return home. The consent form you need to complete before they come to school can be found HERE Students do not need to wear uniform when they come in to test.
As with previous testing the only results we will contact you about are positive results. You may get a text or email from the official DFE testing service however our previous experience was that this was unreliable.
Please get in touch if you have any queries or questions on firstname.lastname@example.org
It is with deep regret I am announcing wider school closures due to extreme staff absence.
I am sorry not to have been able to share this with you earlier today but we were trying to evaluate if we could open for some year groups. Sadly this is not the case school will be closed for all year groups tomorrow 17th December 2021. Full details can be found in the letter below.
We will contact our most vulnerable SEND students separately regarding arrangements for tomorrow. You can contact me directly with any questions or queries via email@example.com
