The role of the School Council at Haydock High is to allow all students to have a voice in the day-to-day running of the School. Each form group from each year nominates two representatives that collectively meet as a "Year Council". These representatives were elected by their fellow form members. Years 7, 8 and 9 have a senior prefect who oversees their meetings and feeds back what is discussed to the Senior Student Leadership Team.
From each year group, two representatives are then elected to make up the School Council, which is overseen by the Head Boy, Head Girl, Deputy Head Boy and Deputy Head Girls, as well as the Head Prefect for the School.
Along with the three prefects who are assigned to oversee Years 7, 8 and 9, these senior prefects make up the Senior Student Leadership Team, who meet every half term with SLT to discuss any issues that have been raised by the student body.
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.
