Current news from Haybridge High School and Sixth Form
Our theme for the Autumn Term is ‘kindness’. Assemblies have highlighted various perspectives on how kindness can look – from the smallest of gestures in our daily lives to campaigning work for charities. In this vein, students have voted on the new school charity for 2019/20. The charity which received most student votes was Guide Dogs and we have started to raise funds for them and are learning more about their vital work.
To mark UK Parliament Week we were delighted to welcome Lord Hunt of King’s Heath. Lord Hunt spent the morning with 40 students from across the Year groups who had the opportunity to learn about the role of the Lords in law-making and to ask Lord Hunt questions about his ministerial career.
We are making real efforts in Haybridge to upskill our staff in the arena of Youth Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing. To this end we are pleased to say that 12 permanent Haybridge staff are now trained in Youth Mental Health First Aid – making conversations around Mental Health easier and signposting to appropriate support for our young people more effective. This number of trained staff will grow in coming months.
Reminder: our Spring 2020 Musical will be ‘School of Rock’, commencing 25 March. Tickets on sale from school reception. Prepare to be entertained! Finally, may we, on behalf of the Haybridge High School and Sixth Form school community, wish you all an extremely Happy and Peaceful Christmas and Healthy New Year.
