Welcome to St Heliers School

DSC 0052St Heliers is a school that strives for excellence. Our aim is to guide and nurture each student to reach their potential in all areas of school life. Integral to achieving this aim is having a close partnership between home and school.

Being a full primary (Years 1 to 8) we are in a unique position to see the development of the students from young bright-eyed 5 year olds to young adolescents. From the earliest stages of their schooling, students are encouraged to be independent, responsible learners.

Older students are expected to look out for younger students. At the start of the year senior classes are buddied up with a junior class to support the children in various aspects of their schooling. This also helps to create the family atmosphere we want at St Heliers.

“Digital devices have the potential to expand and enhance interaction in the classroom, enable more real-world activities, improve learning environments and engage students in new and exciting ways. Opportunities for collaboration and problem-solving are expanded beyond the classroom in an online environment” (Ministry of Education).

BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) is part of our Year 7 - 8 Programme. It is entirely optional. Students will continue to have access to school owned devices.

 

The thinking behind BYOD at St Heliers School is that students who have access to an existing suitable device at home, bring their device to school to use as one of the many learning tools utilised in their classroom programme.

For your information, we have put together documentation including;
