It is good to be back to school. Our students are keen and eager to get started on the exciting opportunities of the new term. We have a record number of students on roll and lots of excellent new staff (see later in the newsletter for their details). Year 11 GCSE results day was again a day of celebration, with the majority of students achieving top grades and many very high performances, above our target grades! Congratulations to all past students. We wish them well as they move on to the next phase of their lives. The school buildings are in ship-shape condition. The Graphics room and one of the Computer rooms have been re-furbished and newly equipped. Our whole ICT infrastructure has been modernised and the old canopy adjacent to the Sports Hall has been replaced. We look forward to a rewarding and successful year ahead. Cathy Tooze Headteacher URGENT NOTICE STUDENTS WITH NUT ALLERGIES As of September the school canteen will no longer be selling nuts or any nut products. We also ask out of consideration for our students that suffer from nut allergies that students do not bring nuts or nut products into school.

A big welcome to our new year 7 students. They have made a great start to the new school term and we wish them every success during their time at Hadleigh High School. From Miss Smith and the Year 7 team. Year 7 ‘drop in’ sessions Parents/guardians have an important role in helping their students to achieve in school. Therefore it is important to develop a positive partnership between our students, their home and the school. To encourage this we are running some ‘drop in’ sessions during the month of September for parents to discuss any concerns they may have concerning their child’s transition to High school. Later in the term there will be an opportunity for you to discuss your child’s learning and progress with their tutor. Therefore please only attend the ‘drop in’ if you have a concern to discuss. The sessions will be run according to your child’s tutor group and you will receive a letter outlining the details of the sessions. Session 1 (Thurs 10/09/09) H & A Session 2 (Thurs 17/09/09) D & L Session 3 (Thurs 24/09/09) E & I Session 4 (Thurs 1/10/09) People unable to attend at other specified time Please do feel that you can contact Miss Smith or your child’s tutor anytime either by phone or email. SCHOOL CALENDAR To take advantage in the advances in technology, this year we are trialling an electronic only school calendar. Calendars in the past have been difficult as there are inevitably changes that occur throughout the year but most parents still work from the original calendar issued in September. To access the calendar find an internet ready device and type in the address below: http://www.school-portal.co.uk/Grouphomepage.asp?GroupId=259253. Click on the calendar link from here. Alternatively if the above address is a bit long you can go to the address: www.school-portal.co.uk and select “H” and “Hadleigh High School” from the list. It is hoped that by maintaining the calendar throughout the year it will eradicate any unfortunate problems caused by events moving or changing and parents/carers not finding out until it is too late. This is a trial and we are interested to hear your views by emailing us from the school web site. REVIEWING SCHOOL POLICIES Every month, we are putting a school policy on our website for parents, carers, pupils and interested members of the community to read and comment upon. Last month’s policy under review was ‘.Confidentiality Policy’. This month’s is ‘Procedures for appeals against internal assessment of work for external qualifications’. EMAIL COMMUNICATION TO PARENTS Please email the school if you wish to receive newsletters electronically to the following address…… email@example.com ABSENCE TELEPHONE NUMBER Remember the Absence Telephone Number which is 01473 820940 to register your child’s absence from school. SALE OF SECONDHAND UNIFORM A small amount of secondhand Hadleigh High School sweatshirts, polo shirts, shorts, fleeces, etc will be available for sale on Thursday 17th September between 3.00-4.30pm All proceeds to charity MFL We are starting an after school club of Mandarin Chinese where students will have the opportunity to take a GCSE exam, or can choose to only discover such a fascinating culture and language. Last year, the whole of year 7 took part in a French poetry competition. The winners are:1st Kayleigh Moye and Reece Wedige; 2nd Tori Hale and Francesca King; joint 3rd Kimberley Last, Rebecca Mann and Michael Sexton Grant. On the 26th September, it is the European Day of languages. The week preceding this date, we will be having languages quizzes/ events during break time/lunch time and in some lessons. ATHLETICS During the summer holidays Kieran Clements has continued to produce some impressive performances. At the end of July he took part in a British Milers Club Grand Prix event held in Solihull near Birmingham. The British Milers Club is an organisation dedicated to producing international distance runners. Kieran completed in the Under 17 boys mile championship and finished 1st in 4min 27.6sec. In the middle of August Kieran also lined up in the A.A.A. UK Youths 3000m held in Bedford. Here he finished in 4th place with many of his fellow competitors being a year older than himself. He recently represented East of England in the UK Youth games at 3000m held in Cardiff and finished 6th. Well done Kieran. MUSIC The music department are already planning the exciting new year ahead. With preparations in full swing for the WIND BAND tour next July to Germany. It looks set to be an exciting trip, including trips to the chocolate museum, theme park, bowling and other exciting Excursions - including 3 concerts yet to be confirmed. The SWING BAND is already booked up for the year. Including a gig on November 13th at Whatfield. We look forward to this event. Well done to all those who took instrument exams last term - everyone passed with marks ranging from a pass to a distinction. These pupils were; Harriet Bensted, Collette Motteram, Collette Bunce, Alice Downie, Anna Gordon, Liam Self and Georgia Dashfield, who took two exams. Well done to all. Very proud of you! We look forward to the year ahead with all clubs back on and new members very welcome. The tour, gigs, the Bury Christmas Fayre and Bugsy Malone to look forward to.
