Welcome to Mackie Hill Junior & Infant School
Coronavirus update - 3/4/20
Home Learning - 30/03/20
We have seen some fantastic work shared on our twitter account already this week. Please post to @MackieHill if you would like to share your achievements with us.
You can access age specific home learning resources on our class pages for each year group. Remember to complete activities regularly as well as enjoying your time with your family. Try to exercise each day- Joe Wicks's 9am workouts are a great way to start your day- and also remember to take time to relax each day.
Below we have included the details of some home learning websites which can be accessed at home. Activities do not need to be printed as children can complete them in their home learning exercise books.
Coronavirus update - 20/3/20
The government have now published guidance around Key workers and the expectations on schools supporting these front line services.
The key message is still to socially distance wherever possible which fundamentally means if you can keep your child at home then please do so. This will not only help us with reduced staffing as we observe national guidance but also help reduce the spread of the virus.
Please consider the following before you request a place for your child:
- If it is at all possible for children to be at home, then they should be.
- If a child needs specialist support, is vulnerable or has a parent who is a critical worker, then educational provision will be available for them.
- Parents should not rely for childcare upon those who are advised to be in the stringent social distancing category such as grandparents, friends, or family members with underlying conditions.
- Parents should also do everything they can to ensure children are not mixing socially in a way which can continue to spread the virus. They should observe the same social distancing principles as adults.
We are currently speaking to parents who have indicated that they are Key Workers. If you think you are a Key Worker please telephone school so we can make arrangements for your child.
Coronavirus update - 18/3/20
Please see the News section of our website for further updates on our actions in school in relation to Coronavirus.
We are following the advice issued by the government through Public Health England and the Department for Education and remain open as usual. We are encouraging good hygiene practices when coughing/sneezing, and also encouraging frequent handwashing.
Government advice for educational settings can be found here.
The coronavirus situation is evolving daily and we will respond to any changes to the government advice being given.
Mackie Hill Junior & Infant School is a happy, caring and stimulating school where all children are valued and given the opportunity to achieve beyond their expectations. We are a forward-thinking school which has experienced rapid improvement. We endeavour to work with our close community of parents and friends of the school to make learning engaging, interesting and relevant to enable children to achieve beyond their expectations and develop a strong sense of responsibility for themselves, their peers and the wider world.
We believe in a broad and balanced curriculum where children can challenge themselves to engage in adventures in learning that will last a lifetime. At Mackie Hill School, children can access real life experiences through educational visits and visits to the school from educational and profession experts that inspire learning. We are committed to the highest standards of teaching and learning – achieved through a combination of challenge, support, resilience, encouragement and praise – to ensure that all students fulfil their potential.
School staff have high expectations of effort and behaviour from all children across all age ranges. We expect our children to work hard and do their best in all aspects of school life.
The staff and I are extremely proud of the achievements our children make at Mackie Hill Junior & Infant School. Should you wish to find out more about the opportunities we can offer for your child at our school or would like to find out more information about our school then please contact the school office on the details below.
