What the school says...

Converted to an academy 2011.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.

Special Education Needs

Haydon is a mixed ability foundation school. We have 30 Statements and 288 on our SEN list. The range of SEN is wide ranging from those with Spld to students with a physical disability. We aim to enable all pupils to have access to a broad, balanced stimulating and challenging curriculum recognising that some children require special educational provision in order to fulfill their potential. Haydon is committed to inclusion. The school is fully accessible. We have a learning support unit which teaches Yr 7 English to weakest students having been identiied via testing and primary records. Some students only following one modern foreign language do Extra English lessons in Year 7, 8 & 9. The Department also provides in-class support and teaches a number of students on a one-one basis.
