Severe Weather Closure
Every winter brings the possibility of snow and ice. Schools are often affected and it can be difficult remain fully open. We recognise that it is important that our school remains open so parents are able to work and pupils can continue to learn.
Hythe Bay Church Of England Primary School & Children's Centre will make every effort to prepare for severe snow/ice this winter, however, if the Headteacher decides to close the school we will notify parents via the Kent Closures website (see above). This website can also be used to find out if other schools and services in Kent are open or closed. We also recommend parents sign up for SMS alerts on the Kent Closures website. This service will send an SMS or email alert to let parents know if our school or children's centre is closed.
We will also endeavour to inform parents by text. Parents can also listen to KMFM, BBC Radio Kent or Heart FM to hear if the school has closed.
Find the homework for your child's class
Homework builds on work done in the classroom. It enables the teacher and parent to confirm that the child has an understanding of a subject and helps to install and develop a sense of discipline about work at home.
If a teacher sets homework there is an expectation that this will be completed by the set date. Homework will be set on Thursday and completed by the following Tuesday.
Each child will have a homework folder or book with a sheet that has the work required. Children will also be given clear instructions about the activity to be undertaken. The amount of time taken on a piece of homework will vary according to the ability of the child.
Homework Grids are shown on each class page.
Staying Safe Online
The internet has changed all of our lives, particularly our children’s. For parents and carers this opens up a whole new world of things to be aware of. For many of us, this can all be a bit too much.
You might be struggling to keep up with the things your child is doing online, you might wonder whether what they are doing is safe, and you might also be thinking how can I be as good a parent online as I am offline?
We recommend that all parents visit CEOPs Think U Know website for more information on keeping your child safe online or click the link above.

Accidents & Illness
Send to school or keep at home?
Click below for advice and guidance on common illnesses. This information is intended only as a guide not as a diagnostic too. Always consult your GP if you are concerned about your child’s health or believe that they may have a communicable disease or illness.
It is very important that we are able to contact you if your child is unwell or has an accident so please ensure a current contact telephone number is left with the school office.
Do we have your correct contact details?
The school uses a text messaging service which is a fast and reliable way of keeping parents informed of events, cancellation of clubs, emergency school closures and to confirm any child’s absence.
The school produces a weekly newsletter to keep parents up-to-date on events and important dates happening at the school. This is emailed to parents to help improve our school’s impact on the environment and to reduce unnecessary costs.
If you have not yet given us your email address, or any of your details need updating please do so by calling at the school office.
