Year Groups

A warm welcome to Year 6 - an important year for all the children. As staff, we will support all children in their learning to achieve their potential and we value any additional support you can give!

Here's to a great final year at Short Heath.

If you have any questions about your child's time in Y6 please don't hesitate to speak to a member of staff.

Miss Ashley - Maple Class Teacher

Mrs Etherington - Willow Class Teacher

Great job with den building at Rough Wood...

A message from the Admissions Team for secondary school applications:

The closing date  for applications is 31st October, but  it is recommended that parents apply  sooner as the closing date falls just after half term holidays and therefore if parents have specific queries they wish to discuss with the schools this may not be an option. The admissions team will however be available throughout half term to offer advice and support.

All applications must be made on-line. However, there may be some families who still need support with the process and we have therefore booked drop-in sessions at the Civic Centre  between 9am and 1pm on the following dates:

22 September 2017

29 September 2017

13 October 2017

20 October 2017

27 October 2017


Please note that as this is a drop-in session parents may have to wait a short while.


PE Information

Please bring PE kits in a named bag - they will stay in school for the half term.

Outdoor P.E is on a Thursday - (suitable outdoor P.E kit required, outdoor trainers, House P.E. top, tracksuit bottoms, waterproof top etc.)

Indoor P.E is on a Wednesday - White P.E tops, blue/black shorts and indoor trainers/pumps are needed.

Maple and Willow Class - Wednesday and Friday

To help develop children’s fluency in mathematics, we ask them to learn Key Instant Recall Facts each half term.
These lists of KIRFs have been created to align with the new curriculum. They are intended to be challenging and it is intended that children will be taught the necessary maths in lessons beforehand.
