Headteacher Updates

Monday 21st September

I hope you all had a lovely weekend. This week sees more changes locally with the introduction of new restrictions from tomorrow. I have uploaded a poster below with the key points on to remember. All staff on the playground and classroom doors will now be wearing face coverings at drop off and pick up, I would appreciate it if you do the same to keep everyone safe.

I know that some children will find themselves missing school at points during this term if they are or a family member need to self-isolate. I don’t want anybody to miss out on learning so there is a brand new section of the website here:

where you will find daily tasks that are in line with the learning taking place in the classroom each day. Photos or examples of your children’s learning should be emailed to the year group address on the home learning pages OR to and teachers will get back to you with their comments and next steps.


We do anticipate that most children will access learning through the website but if your individual circumstances require paper based activities, please let us know.

There is an expectation that children will complete this work whilst they are required to stay at home and it’s really important that activities are completed each day (if children are well enough of course). If you require any help or support, please text, email or phone us.

Lots of sunshine still!

Please see the letter above from St Helens Council regarding the wearing of face masks to drop off and collect children and other additional measures to reduce the spread of Covid-19. Thank you for supporting us and helping to look after our Broad Oak family. We do appreciate it.

Good morning everybody!

It’s lovely to see some sunshine again, I hope you had a lovely weekend.

I’m sure you have all seen the news that Covid-19 cases are rising in Merseyside. Please note that we do not have any confirmed cases in staff or pupils at Broad Oak. You would be informed as soon as practically possible if there was a positive case in your child’s bubble.

I will keep you updated with any new information here on the website so keep checking or call us if you have any questions or concerns. As always, I am happy to answer any questions as are senior and pastoral staff.

We continue to follow all the guidelines to keep everyone in our school as safe as possible including keeping in our class bubbles and regular handwashing and cleaning.

I just wanted to go over some important points to remember.

The three symptoms to look out for are:

It’s Autumn now and children will still get regular colds and coughs. They are able to attend school if they are well enough and they do NOT have one of the symptoms above. It is very important that if your child or someone they live with has one of these, you should contact 119 by phone or online to check their symptoms and see if they need a test. If you are advised to take a test, all people in the household should self-isolate until the symptoms have gone AND a negative test is received.

We will be creating a special area on our website this week for learning at home so children can keep up with their school work if they are unable to attend school. I will send more information soon.

Thank you for supporting us so well in these difficult times. It’s so lovely to have the children back with us and they are all very happy and settled. I do recognise that it is difficult for everyone at this moment though so thank you for your help and co-operation.

Take care,

Mrs Hignett

Good afternoon everybody!

We are now halfway through our first full week back at school. It’s been lovely to meet our new EYFS children this week. I’m so pleased with how well they’re settling in. I’ve been out on the playground each day this week and enjoyed meeting you again. It’s good to catch up. Thank you for your positive comments and feedback on our return to school. Here are just a few reminders that are important to follow to keep everyone safe:


All Y5 classes


All Y6 classes


All Y1 classes and 2S, 2G


All Y3 classes


All Y4 classes and 2B

Once again, I thank you for your support as we find our way through new routines and different ways of working. There is a letter at the top of the page from St Helens Council which has some more information about the re-opening of local schools.

You’ll notice there are lots of additional staff on duty each day – Myself, Mr Affleck, Ms Gallagher and Mrs Kelly (our family support workers) are on the playground and Mrs Lombari, Pastoral Manager is at the front door. I do find it useful when you share your thoughts and ideas on how we can improve school further so please do get in touch or come and say hello on the playground or ask us for any help or support. Together we make things work for our children.

Take care,

Mrs Hignett
