Dear Parents/Carers

As I write to you on the final day of this half term, I am filled with gratitude and pride for all our staff and pupils. They have worked so hard this term to get back on track with all learning. Our staff have created bespoke catch-up plans to ensure that no child is left behind because of the pandemic. I will be sending you more information after half term about these plans, including our continuity of learning.

All our pupils have settled into school really well and have impressed all of us with their confidence and ability to manage their learning with all the current restrictions. I have already noticed brilliant progress in children’s books. This is a credit to our pupils’ exceptional learning behaviours and determination to do well at school. We look forward to sharing your child/ren’s progress next half term.

I would like to thank all our parents/carers for their continued support, and timely communication that has been invaluable to us in the safe running of the school. Here at High Hazels Academy, we are all looking forward to the start of another amazing term, full of learning achievements, joy and progress.

Have a restful half term break.

Yours sincerely

Mrs A Maqsood-Shah

Headteacher

I have had to make this change to accommodate the changes of the training provider. Therefore, I am notifying you of the upcoming change in advance so that you can make family arrangements accordingly.

This means that school will be open as usual on Wednesday 9th December for all pupils.

Please accept my apologies for any inconvenience that this may cause.

Thank you for your continued support.

10 Day Active Challenge Starting 12th October

10 Day Active Challenge Starting 12th October

Dear Parent / Carer,

 

Our school will be taking part in the 10 day Active Travel Challenge starting on Monday 12th and finishing on Friday 23rd October 2020.

 

The challenge is for pupils & their families to choose an active way of getting to school over the 10 day period. The challenge is also open to school staff and we will be making every effort to take part too.

 

Walking, cycling, skating, scooting and park & stride are all active ways of travelling and we hope by taking part in the challenge it will:

 

  • Improve health & wellbeing of our pupils & their families
  • Encourage pupils and families to be more active
  • Reduce congestion and parking problems around our school
  • Improve air quality around school

     

     

    Please be aware if you live a long way from school and need to drive you can still take part by parking away from school (at least a 5 minute walk) and walking the last part of your journey, this is called Park & Stride.

     

    We are competing against schools from across South Yorkshire so we really do need your help. Please do your best to be active on your journey to school and help us complete the challenge.

Mrs Shah's Weekly Message W/C 21st September

Dear Parents/carers

As we start week 4 of this term, I am filled with joy and pride at how well the whole school community is working together to ensure we continue to provide the best education for our pupils.

We have had outdoor handwashing facilities fitted this week in our Junior school yard and will be having some fitted in the Infants school yard next week. This will no doubt help us to continue embedding the good and safe practice of regular handwashing.

This week we will also start trialling serving hot dinners for all pupils in the junior school.  An updated menu link has been sent out to all parents.

Over the next two weeks all our pupils will be sitting baseline tests for English and Maths. This will help us ascertain individual pupil gaps and support the teaching staff in planning for catch-up and keep up. As always, we will be sharing with valuable information about your child’s progress so far before the end of this half term and will include key areas of focus/targets for your child. This will guide you as parents/carers on how you support your child with their learning.

 

Thank you for your continued support.

Mrs Shah's Weekly Message W/C 14th September

Dear Parents/Carers

Last week was our first full week back with our pupils and what a week it has been! It has been delightful seeing how well our pupils and staff have settled back into school life. They have all embraced the new ways of working and have been very mature and diligent in ensuring the safety and well-being of all. I feel very proud of my team, all our pupils and the wider community for working together through a challenging week and making our pupils’ experience of returning to school an enjoyable one.

Whilst we have made some fantastic gains towards the successful re-opening of school, I feel we have a few more things to do. The morning dropping of at school gates seems to work so much better, with parents being punctual and arriving at the correct gate. Thank you all for this. However, we still need to work together on home time/end of day collection. Please, can all parents always arrive at their allocated time and observe social distancing. I would also encourage all parents/carers to wear masks when queuing. This will not only protect you and other parents, but it will also mean that my staff are protected.

I would also like to remind all parents/carers that the school is running a cashless system. This means that we, no longer accept cash in school. All parents need to set up their online payment account with school to pay for dinners, trips, uniform etc. If you need any support with this, then please ring our school office and the team will help you in setting this up.

I would like to remind parents that if you have missed sending a packed lunch with your child first thing in the morning, then we would ask that you arrange for your child to have a school dinner as we are unable to take through late packed lunches. This is to ensure that the integrity of bubbles is maintained.
