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.

The primary benefit of e-learning (learning facilitated through the use of digital technologies) is to give students the skills, strategies and experiences to achieve success in the modern digital world.

“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).

The Board of Trustees and the PTA significantly invests in ICT technology. As a school, we aim to provide students with exposure and access to a range of different types of devices throughout their years at school. We aim to provide them with flexible skills that can be adapted to suit a wide range of applications preparing them for success at High School and beyond.

The school has an Internet Safety Policy, which is reviewed regularly in order to maintain the safety of students online. Digital citizenship and cyber safety is interwoven throughout the school curriculum beginning right from Year 1.
