Headteacher's Welcome

Heron Cross has a unique and creative environment where everyone works in partnership to maximise the life-chances for all pupils.  Ofsted 2012 described the school as having a ‘stimulating and inspiring learning environment’ with ‘lively and imaginative teaching’.  Our school is an exciting place for children to learn.  We believe that children who enter our school family should feel happy, cared for, safe and nurtured.

Heron Cross Primary is a large spacious Edwardian school.  Classrooms contain displays of every child’s work which enhance the learning environment.  We are fortunate to have a well stocked school library; newly furbished ICT suite with the most up-to-date technology and a community room.

Welcome to Heron Cross Primary School

Newsletter 6.12.21


Dear Parent/Guardian -

Nasal Flu spray vaccination – If you have not yet consented for your child to receive the flu vaccination please do so before 08/12/2021 at 12:00pm.

If your child suffers with asthma, have they experienced any of the following:

  • Increased inhaler use
  • Wheezy 72hrs before school vaccination date
  • Taken oral steroids within the last 14 days

Then you MUST email school.immunisation@mpft.nhs.uk, as your child may not be able to receive their vaccination.

If this occurs on the day of the vaccination session, then please inform your child’s school so that a message can be passed to one of the nursing team attending the vaccination session.

Many thanks,

School Age Immunisation Team
