School Closure

School Closure

Dear Parents,


As you are aware school is closed for the foreseeable future, but we have put into place for the children remote classrooms. It is going to be different to our usual school days but we can continue our learning journey together and have lots of fun.  Remember we are here to help your children in their learning, just as we are in school, it's just we cannot see one another, but we can still see the fabulous learning the children will do. 

This is all new for us and we all have to work together. If parents need any help accessing work for the children you can call the main school number between 10-1pm any day this week, or email enquiries@highhazelsacademy.org.uk.

Some parents might find this healthy minds leaflet useful, to help keep routines in place for children.

Stay safe and we looking forward to seeing you all soon! 

 

Mrs A Maqsood-Shah

Junior School Achieves "Good" Ofsted Rating

HIGH HAZELS JUNIOR ACADEMY ACHIEVES FIRST ‘GOOD’ OFSTED RATING

~ Sheffield primary school rated ‘Good’ in all areas ~

~ Inspectors praise school’s ‘ambitious’ curriculum and ‘strong links with the community’ ~

~ Pupils are said to ‘enjoy attending school’ and ‘understand the importance of tolerance and respect’ ~

Pupils and staff at High Hazels Junior Academy are celebrating after being judged ‘Good’ by Ofsted for the first time.

High Hazels Junior Academy joined United Learning, the national group of primary and secondary schools, in 2015. Since then, the school has gone from strength to strength, with its most recent Ofsted report showcasing the host of improvements that have been made.

Following their visit last month, inspectors have praised the school, judging it to be ‘Good’ in each of the four main inspection categories – namely the quality of education, behaviour and attitudes, personal development and leadership and management.

In their report, inspectors described pupils as being well-behaved, ‘confident’ and ‘keen to share their ideas with the class’. As well as having access to an ‘ambitious’ curriculum, inspectors said that pupils get the opportunity to hear from special guests and enjoy educational visits that supplement the learning being done inside the classroom. Activities for pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities are said to be similarly ‘well planned’ and teachers are committed to ensuring that ‘effective support’ is in place.

In terms of the school’s leadership, inspectors noted that ‘leaders and governors are passionate about the school’ and have made particularly strong improvements to reading standards, helping pupils to develop a ‘wide range of comprehension skills’. Leaders were also said to have worked hard to establish ‘strong links with the community’, with inspectors referencing the school’s annual lantern parade as an example of this ongoing local partnership work.

As well as this, inspectors commented on the healthy relationship that pupils have with one another. In their report, inspectors highlighted that pupils ‘understand the importance of tolerance and respect’ and celebrate one another’s differences. The children were said to ‘enjoy attending school’, with staff prioritising the children’s safety and creating a supportive learning environment.

Asma Maqsood-Shah, Headteacher at High Hazels Academy, said:

All of us at High Hazels Junior Academy are very proud of our most recent Ofsted report which is a result of the dedication and support of our pupils, staff, governors and parents. What is particularly pleasing is that the inspectors noted how much our pupils enjoy attending school and saw for themselves all of the steps we have taken to make sure improvements are being made across the academy. We look forward to building on the inspectors’ comments for the future

Dear Parent/Carer

At High Hazels Academy, we are dedicated to delivering an enriching and inspiring Education with Character to our pupils. This means helping our pupils to face challenges they may find hard, develop new skills, discover new enthusiasms and learn to work better as a team.

We work closely with our families, PTA and school governors to ensure all our children are enjoying a safe and happy learning environment and are making the most of everything our academy has to offer.  However, we want to do even more for our pupils.

We want to make sure they have access to the best possible educational resources, equipment and facilities. As well as this, we want our pupils to be able to regularly experience new and exciting enrichment activities, from cultural visits to residential trips.

We have therefore set up a crowdfunding campaign with Regular Giving. Through this, we hope to raise money for our school so that we can develop and strengthen what is already on offer to our pupils. Our first steps would be to purchase:

•          Books for our growing library

•          More PE equipment for our sports clubs

•          Musical instruments to enrich our music lessons

•          Games for our Breakfast Club

•          Toys and equipment for our outside play area

We eventually hope to raise enough money to take our pupils, many of whom have never had the opportunity to leave Sheffield, on a school trip to London so that they can experience the sights and sounds of the capital first-hand.

If you wish to donate to our crowdfund, please visit https://donatemyschool.com/highhazelsacademy

Any donations, however big or small, would be much appreciated and would bring us closer to reaching our goals.

 

Many thanks for your continued support.
