We were so sorry that the current Government restrictions meant we were unable to invite parents and friends to come and watch our sports day this year.

We hope this video will bring a smile to your faces instead, it did to ours!

Don’t forget to send your photos of your children dressed up as a book character, or reading their favourite books. We will put them in our special World Book Day gallery.

Send your photos to mrschesterteacher@gmail.com


‘Gung hay fat choy!

Happy Chinese New Year to you all.

Here at HETTY we have been celebrating by eating noodles and prawn crackers, dragon dancing, painting and drawing, creating with craft and having lots of fun.

Miss Worthington, our film maker extraordinaire, has made us a film of our dragon dance and there are also some photos of the fun we have been having.

The children at HETTY spent some time thinking about all the soldiers who have helped us and the people who were no longer here.

They watched a beautiful film about poppies produced by CBeebies and then sat quietly for a minute with their eyes closed. We were very proud of them all being able to do this at such a young age.


Don’t forget our spotty day this Friday 13th November.

We’re asking the children to come into HETTY on Friday dressed in spots to help raise money for Children in Need.  It would be great if you could donate something towards the charity – anything from 10p to £10 – every little helps!

We’ll be doing all things Pudsey this week so watch out for the photos in the gallery over the next few weeks.

We would appreciate it if you refrained from sending any nuts, or nut related products, eg. peanut butter, in your child’s lunch box.

We have some children with nut allergies and need to keep them safe.

Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.

Hopefully you will have had a good Summer (albeit a very different one!) and you are looking forward to our new term at HETTY. Whether you are joining us for the very first time or whether you’re one of our ‘oldies’, we can’t wait to see you!

HETTY opens again for children on Wednesday 2nd September – we’ll see you then!

(Please look at our term dates page for more details).

We would love to hear about what the children have been up to recently at home.

If your child would like to let us know what they have been up to, they can contact us and send pictures, films or just a message – we would really love to hear from them and will make sure we reply to any emails we get!

Please contact us at hettymanager@hooleceprimary.cheshire.sch.uk or mrschesterteacher@gmail.com

Thank you for continuing to check this page.

Please be aware that all adults must now wear face coverings when on the school grounds. When dropping off or collecting your children, we ask that you adhere to this ruling. Thank you.

We have produced a guide to inform families of what to do in the event of your child being ill.
This guide provides information about when we would recommend that your child is tested for Coronavirus and what to do in the event of your child testing positive for Coronavirus.

We have set up a dedicated hotline and email address for families to inform us as soon as a positive test result is received. The hotline and email address will be manned by senior staff from 7am – 9pm Monday to Friday and 9am – 5pm at weekends. We would appreciate families informing us as soon as a positive result is confirmed.

Email: COVIDResponseTeam@hooleceprimary.cheshire.sch.uk
Phone: 07510002669

In the event of a positive case in HETTY, we will identify and alert affected families as a matter of urgency. If there is a positive case within your child’s class, you will be contacted to inform you that your child will need to self-isolate.

May I take this opportunity to thank you again for supporting our efforts to keep our HETTY family as safe as possible in order to avoid us having to send children home for self-isolation. We are keen to keep business as normal as possible over the coming terms and your support to enable us to do this is greatly appreciated.
