Heronswood Primary School and Pre-School


At Heronswood, we understand the importance of ensuring that there are good lines of communication between school and home.  Communication is quick and effective; keeping everybody up to date with all the exciting things that are going on in school.

Home School Diaries

Across the whole school, from Reception up to Year 6 we provide children with home school diaries.  These diaries are an excellent way for teachers and parents to communicate to each other on a daily basis in an informal way.  We expect the diaries to be brought into school each day and taken home again each night.  This is an invaluable way for teachers to pass on information and for parents to pass notes back to teachers.  In addition, the home school diaries are also used to record the number of times each week a child has read at home.  We expect parents and carers to record when their child has read to them at home and ideally this would be a minimum of 10 minutes each day depending on the age of the child. 



As a school, we value communication with parents and carers.

MarvellousMe is a vital tool that school use daily to keep you informed of:

  • School events
  • Letters to parents and carers
  • Zoneboard awards
  • STARS Values Award
  • Head Teacher Award
  • Pupil of The Week Award
  • Head bump notifications
  • Individual messages to parents and carers


School Newsletters

Once a fortnight, school newsletters are sent home to parents and carers to inform them of updates in school and of forthcoming events.  Our diary dates section is always kept up to date so that parents and carers can plan ahead for upcoming events.  Our school is constantly changing and evolving and we do feel that it is important that we share the latest initiatives that we are using in school with you, at home.  We also use newsletters to celebrate children's achievements and attendance.  Remember we are aiming for a minimum of 97% attendance.
