As part of the National Anti-Bully Week (16th - 20th November) Haydock High School have planned many activities some of which are detailed below.The key aims of the week are:
On Monday 16th Wish FM will be playing the advert which our students produced when they attended a workshop with the radio station and Year 8 students will take part in a workshop on racism with Merseyside Police.
Miss Dunn will take the Year assemblies based on anti-bullying. What bullying is and what students can do about it if it is happening to them or to others, either face to face or online. They can 'MAKE A NOISE'.
Every year group will be allocated a key word from the school charter:
Year 7 - Kindness
Year 8 - Honesty
Year 9 - Respect
Year 10 - Trust
Year 11 - Tolerance
In form time students will produce hands with messages on them based on the key word; and how they are going to fulfil the school value linking it to anti-bully week. This will empower students to take the lead in speaking up about bullying. Each year group will have different coloured paper for the hands and these will be used in a display in student services.
Year 9 and Year 11 students to be encouraged to write an anti-bully message to put on the school website and at the end of the week there will be an Anti-Bully Week assembly with Mr Carter providing something musical to celebrate the week's activities.
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.
