At this time we are still coming to terms with the terrible events in Manchester last night, and we are supporting in school any students that attended or were affected by last night’s attack.
We have taken some time in school today, and will continue tomorrow, to talk to students about the issues raised by this act and have spoken of the importance in school of promoting our values of tolerance and kindness. I’m sure many of us have been warmed by the stories of random acts of kindness which have been offered by people to help and support victims of the attack or those affected by it, and it is this that we will use in school in our assemblies this week; while addressing issues such as behaviour, discipline and commitment, we will also focus on tolerance and kindness, as promoted too in our school prayer.
If any families need help or support or need to let school know of any issues, please contact us.
With thanks and best wishes
At Haydock High School our mission is to care for and support
each student so that they fulfil their potential, make outstanding progress and become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens. We will be relentless in developing our skills, and work with our parents, Governors and wider partners to ensure that every student is known, contributes to our community and is
fulfilled in achieving their ambitions.
The pace of curriculum change continues to accelerate, for example introducing a more flexible Key Stage 3. Our constant planning offers confidence for successful delivery and assessment of these areas.
Over the last few years we have been successful in achieving Sportsmark, Investors in People, Artsmark, Careers and Guidance and Healthy Schools accreditation. We were also awarded the accolade of a ‘Get Set’ school in the run-up to the 2012 London Olympics.
We take great pride in serving the needs of our students and are dedicated to each and every one of them making outstanding progress in their time at our school. To this end, we undertake a significant commitment and interest in them as individuals so that we can most effectively meet their specific needs. This care for their achievement means we have the very highest expectations of their attendance, respect for the school and our ethos, behaviour, happiness, fulfilment and academic progress.
