There are various attendance messages being sent out on social media sites by Oldham council. They include:

 Do you want your child to have the best possible chance to succeed in life?

Then it’s important that they return to the classroom after the Easter break.

Taking your child out of school for a holiday or trip abroad is not ok.

It affects their education, they pose a potential covid risk when they return, and you could be fined.

Let’s help our children and young people to get back on track by getting them back into the classroom.


Attendance in school is mandatory from Monday, with our usual attendance policy being applied.

The big questions are:

  • What do families need to support children’s health & development at home and help children flourish?
  • Where do families go for support with your child’s development?
  • How do we help our children be happy & healthy; skilful learners; great communicators?
  • What could we do better – what would you like to see if the strategy?

Those who complete the survey can win £50 in high street vouchers and four runners up receive a £10 voucher.

Oldham has seen a reduction in cases of COVID over the past week with the rate up to the 8th April being 56 cases per 100,000 in 7 days.  This is higher than the national rate, and we are near the top of the GM local authorities.  Rates of COVID have reduced for all age groups over the past week and are currently lowest in the over 60s and the under 5s.  Vaccinations are currently focusing on second doses but those aged 45 years and over can now book for their first dose if they have not already done so.

Year Six on the pitch at Oldham Athletic

Filed under: Headteacher

We have been invited to take a party of children to play a football match on the pitch at Oldham Athletic, on Monday 10th May.

It will be on half of the pitch, playing one of our teams against another- I.E. it is a Hey With Zion v Hey with Zion match. For Covid safety reasons it must remain single bubble, so in the circumstances I am making it just for Year Six children.

I shall confirm timings and transport arrangements once we are back in school but it will be open for any Year Six child who wants to play, subject to ongoing good behaviour in the classroom during the summer term.

It is a treat for football lovers.
