Many of our children attend Hensall Playgroup, which currently meets in Kellington Village Hall, and Fieldside Nursery in Heck. We have strong links with both settings and staff from school liaise with staff from both the playgroup and nursery. To ensure a smooth transition into school a programme of induction visits to school is organised in the summer term prior to children starting school in September. Parents should contact the following people if they wish to know more about Hensall Playgroup or Fieldside Nursery:
Hensall Playgroup: Mrs H. Benson-Collinson on 07950 591358
Fieldside Nursery: Mrs G. Hope on 01977 661523
Links to Secondary School
Children usually transfer at the end of Year 6 to Snaith School for their Secondary Education. Parents, however, may wish their children to attend other Secondary Schools in the area. Requests to attend schools other than Snaith are dealt with by: Area Education Office, Ainsty Road, Harrogate, North Yorkshire, HG1 4XU. Children who attend Hensall School from outside our catchment area are required to apply separately to Snaith School, at the beginning of Year 6. These requests are dealt with by East Riding of Yorkshire County Council. We are happy to give parents information and guidance to help them through the transfer process. We have particularly strong links with Snaith Secondary School, along with other nearby feeder primary schools in East Riding.
Other Local Links
We have strong links with St. Paul’s Church which is just next door to us. Our local vicar leads assemblies in school and we use the church for performances during the year. Similarly, we also link with the Methodist Chapel in Hensall. We regularly welcome representatives of other local organisations into school to work with our children such as the local Police and Rescue Services, School Nurse, Road Safety Officers and charity organisations.
