A message from the Head of School…
This week the children have been learning about Chinese New Year. The early years children have been busy tasting Chinese food and learning how to use chop sticks. It was very messy but the children had lots of fun! Please see our Facebook page for pictures.

Internet Safety Day took place on Tuesday 5th February. Internet Safety Day is celebrated globally each year to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology for children and inspire a national conversation. The internet is a wonderful tool to use but there are also risks if not used appropriately. At Haxby Road Academy we learn about the importance of online safety. Social communication on line plays a big part in all our lives, including young people. Please see the links below on how this important subject is being discussed in school and how you can be
involved and better informed. Protecting Children’s Privacy On Line
If you have any worries or concerns regarding keeping your child safe online please feel free to speak to myself or Ms Martin.
