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.

Students should:

  1. Uphold the School Values.
  2. Always address staff and other adults as Mr/Mrs/Ms/Miss.
  3. Adhere to the Dress Code.
  4. Always complete classwork and homework to the best of their ability.
  5. Always allow others to work without being distracted.
  6. Bring a note for any absence from school.
  7. Put classroom equipment back where it belongs.
  8. Move around the school quietly in class lines during instructional periods.

The following are not permitted at St Heliers School:

  1. Students in classrooms before the 8:30am bell.
  2. Students in classrooms at play and lunchtime without teacher supervision.
  3. Chewing gum, fizzy drinks or lollies.
  4. Toys of any description unless approved by the class teacher.
  5. Littering.
  6. Running around corners on hard surfaces.
  7. Shoes in the library.
  8. Kicking of large balls other than on the field.
  9. Students in the Staff car park.
  10. Students in the following areas: behind Rooms 1 - 6 and Rooms 7 - 12.
  11. Food in the hall.
  12. Playing with balls in classrooms.
  13. Climbing trees.
  14. Mobile Phones and Smart Watches.  If parents wish their child to bring a mobile phone to school, you must seek permission from the class teacher if your child needs a mobile phone at school. For most, it is for communication with parents after school regarding mode of transport home. Mobile phones are not to be used during school hours and must be handed in to the class teacher before school and picked up after school. It is the child’s responsibility to do this.  If a smart watch has the same functionality as a mobile phone the rules are the same as a mobile phone, which is permission is sought by parents and they are to be handed in to the class teacher.  The simple and obvious reason that children cannot have mobile phones and smart watches on their person during the day is for internet safety.
  15. Riding of bikes and scooters within the school grounds during school hours and on the artifical turf at any time.
  16. Cigarettes, vapes, alcohol and drugs.
  17. Any item that is widely regarded as being unsuitable to bring to school, mainly for health or safety reasons e.g. matches, fireworks, skateboards, knives, electronic products.
