Leadership At High Hazels Academy

Dear Parents/Carers

Leadership at High Hazels Academy

We hope that everyone is enjoying the new term. Despite the ongoing challenges of Covid19, we are pleased that pupils are continuing at pace with their learning. After seven years as Headteacher of High Hazels Academy, Mrs Maqsood-Shah will be leaving the school at the end of the academic year. She has been appointed as Regional Director within a Primary Trust. This is not a decision she has taken lightly, and we will be very sorry to see her leave. She has been an excellent Headteacher for the school and, has been very successful in managing the challenges of Covid-19. Her dedication to the school and its community has been superb. I know that everyone in the school will wish her well for the future and thank her for the contribution she has made to the school’s success. She is, of course, fully committed to the school until the summer and is looking forward to a productive six months.

We will now begin a national recruitment exercise to appoint her successor. We hope to attract a strong field of candidates and to have our new Head in place for September. We will, of course, ensure a smooth transition between Mrs Maqsood-Shah and her successor so that there is no disruption to the strong progress underway at the school. Thank you for your continued support of the school during this very important time for catching up on any lost learning due to the Pandemic.

Best wishes

Its week 3 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Y3…………………….

This week, Year 3 have been learning all about newspaper reports. We considered writing with a formal tone, adding detail for the reader, and including quotations to bring dimension to our writing. We planned our reports, practised reporting in the style of TV news and then wrote our own newspaper reports on the theme of fairy-tale crimes. Take a look! 

Its week 3 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Y3…………………….


The Date Project

The idea and concept was simple, to raise funds for the Al-Huda Bakery in Syria by selling a box of the finest Medjool dates for £10 during Ramadan. 

Each box sold raised funds for fifty loaves of bread for a Syrian family. The Date Project is a initiative started and run by volunteers with 100% of profits going to charity.

In the first year of the project, 100,000 loaves of bread were distributed, and in 2016 a phenomenal 3.5 million loaves of bread were produced as a result of this initiative. 

For Ramadan 2017, Palestine was added with a beautifully designed box in Palestinian colors being sold as the perfect gift nationwide.

We are supporting The Date Project by selling dates on our school yard next week for £10 per tin. These will be available to buy after school from the PTA members. For more information visit https://thedateproject.org

Science Dress Up Day 16th March

Dear parents and carers,

Next week we will be celebrating British Science Week. On Wednesday 16th March, we have planned a fun filled day so children can engage in a number of activities that build skills such as problem solving, critical thinking and enquiry. Please follow the Sway page if you would like some ideas on how to continue this learning at home. As part of the excitement, we are asking all children to dress up on Wednesday as something related to science. Again, please continue scrolling for costume ideas you can easily create at home.

If you have any questions, please ask your child’s teacher.

Many thanks,

Miss Scrimgeour, Miss Grieves and Mrs Cox
