During the course of the year, we have actively sought the views of parents and carers through Parents’ Evenings to improve the quality of education, care, provision and support for our students. The questionnaires, which reflect the prompts used by Ofsted as part of their inspection process, were completed on Parents’ Evenings and the findings used to inform our School Improvement Plan, as well as to address any pressing concerns parents may have about issues in school. While we are grateful for the overwhelmingly positive responses to the questions, rest assured we will always strive to meet the needs of every student at our school to ensure they are as successful, safe and happy as possible. Should you have any comments about the questionnaire, or if there are any concerns or issues you would like to raise, please do not hesitate to contact us at school.

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.
