HRS Primary Phase

New Beginnings!

After months of anticipation, countless hours of toil and labour and a million and one last minute preparations, we were delighted to take up residence in our BRAND NEW BUILDING! Our school is beautiful, and the contractors have done a fantastic job of bringing the project plans to life.

We believe that becoming an ‘All Through School’ will strengthen our sense of community and connection, and we can see that happening already. So many of our HRS colleagues – and even our Primary Pupils – lent a helping hand to move us in and to make the space safe, warm and welcoming. Merci Beaucoup!

Our sincerest of thanks must go to Miss Knowles and Mrs Louth who have worked tirelessly to ensure that the classroom is a haven for learning, and that our shared spaces reflect the high standards we have here at HRS.

Next week, we look forward to welcoming lots of visitors; from local Nursery providers to prospective parents, we will be proudly touring people around the school and showcasing the excellent offer we have here at Helena Romanes School.

Remembrance Sunday

Last Sunday Mr Foster, Deputy Headteacher, together with the Head Students, Maisie and Ellis and Sixth Form Head Boy, Oliver, attended the Remembrance service at the War Memorial in Dunmow High Street where they laid a poppy wreath on behalf of Helena Romanes School. The students were a credit to the school showing dignity and respect on such an important occasion.

Uttlesford Food Bank

The HRS collection for the Foodbank has started and all donations need to be in school by Friday 10th December so we can deliver them on time.

A reminder of the items required can be found in the related documents folder below. Students can bring the donations to the Learning Zone where we will store them. As always your help is greatly appreciated.

Lost Property

We have accumulated quite a lot of accumulation of PE kits, coats, water bottles and miscellaneous items in our lost property. If they are not reunited with their owner by the end of term these items will be disposed of or added to spare uniform supplies.

If your child has lost any items, please ask them to go to Student Reception.

Thank you.

Year 9 Maths Assessment

Year 9 will all be sitting a maths assessment in their timetabled lesson on Friday 26th November. This is for staff to evaluate students’ conceptual and procedural understanding thus far.

If students would like to revise, they can take their maths books home as well as use the numbered and Memri tasks on hegartymaths.com.

Please can I take this opportunity to remind students of the importance of having the correct equipment: pen, pencil, ruler, eraser, calculator, protractor and compass.

Thank you in advance for your support.

Miss G Bacon – Second in Mathematics
