Letters to Parents

Dear Parents/Carers

As Easter fast approaches we would like to once again thank you for the support we have received during this challenging and turbulent period. It has been wonderful to see students back in classrooms fully engaged in their learning. There is no better sight than seeing the smiling faces of our students as they enter the school gate every morning.  We would also like to publicly thank all of our staff as well as the local community who have worked together to make our full reopening such a success. 

Keeping our Hatton community safe continues to be our number one priority and we would like to thank the many volunteers from the local community who gave up their time to assist us in rolling out the mass testing of students.  Following the announcement schools would be reopening from the 8th March we took on the challenge to ensure that all students could resume face to face learning as soon as possible. Our gates were safely opened and we were the first secondary school in the local community to welcome all of our students back into our classrooms.

Following the return of students to the Academy we have resumed our extra-curricular activities with football, netball and the Combined Cadet Force already taking place.  Term 4 will not only see these clubs continue to be back in action, we will also increase and adapt our offering this includes clubs from our Performing Arts department, including the Hatton singers, brass group, strings guitar, woodwind and Jazz Band.

Lateral flow testing

To ensure the safety of our community we ask that all students continue to regularly test themselves on a Wednesday and Sunday evening including over the period of the Easter Holiday, all test results should be reported on the day of the test using this link (students have been provided with additional testing kits so they can continue to undertake these tests over the Easter Holiday).

We would also ask if your child receives a positive test result that this is reported immediately to the academy using the following email address head@hattonacademy.org.uk

All households with school age children can order additional home testing kits.  Information on how to obtain these testing kits can be found by following this link.

Change to the start of the School day

When we return to school on Monday 12th April the following changes to the school day will be implemented:

Year group

Start time

Years 7, 8

8:35am

Years 9, 10, 12

8:45am

Year 11

8:55am

Please note: Year 13 students will no longer be required to attend form time.

School Uniform

When we return on Monday 12th April we will be removing the addendum to the school uniform policy which allowed students to wear a dark jumper underneath their blazer. Students will now only be permitted to wear the standard black academy jumper which can be purchased via the academy website.

As we move into the summer term the academy will continue to rise to the many challenges that we all face.  We wish you a very happy and restful Easter break.

Yours Sincerely,
