World Autism Awareness Day is an internationally recognised day taking place on April 2nd every year. In the week of 1 - 7 April surrounding this day, the public are encouraged to take part in World Autism Awareness Week – a full seven days where people across the UK take part in activities to raise money and awareness for the National Autistic Society.
As part of ‘World Austim Awareness Week’ student Owen Thorley has produced a presentation helping to bring awareness and support for those with the condition. The students will be shown the presentation and have discussions during form time, to bring more understanding and help to promote the campaign backed by Chris Packham.
The campaign is run by the Autistic Society and Owen is also selling badges to raise funds for the organisation, so make sure you bring a donation on Tuesday 2nd April (Official World Autism Day), when Owen will be selling the ribbon badges around school.
We would like to thank Owen for bringing this information to his fellow students and for his wonderful fundraising for the cause. We hope that others will follow this example.

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.
