Before students move to Haydock High School significant work will have been done to prepare them for this very important step. The students visit as early as Year 2 to take part in numerous Activity Days. The planning then starts to ensure a smooth transitional stage and to build a meaningful partnership between school and home.
It is our belief that the continuity of a student’s educational experience can be enhanced significantly by the quality of the professional links established between primary and secondary schools.
Our Transition Manager visits all of our Partnership Primary Schools to speak with the students and answer any questions they might have at this vital stage in their school career. Equally important are the close working relationships we have formed with our Primary colleagues in assessing the strengths and needs of the students prior to transfer. It is our belief that the continuity of a student’s educational experience can be enhanced significantly by the quality of the professional links established between primary and secondary schools.
Termly meetings take place between the Headteachers of all Haydock’s Partnership Primary Schools and key school staff.
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.
