A message from Miss Woodward
Welcome back to all of our Haxby Road families and new starters.
Things have been quite strange since the end of March, and many of you have had to stay at home. Now things are starting to return to a new normal and it was a joy to see all the children return smiling and happy to be back at school. Almost all of our children are back with us, which is wonderful!
Some things in school have stayed the same and some things are a little different. Positive relationships and emotional wellbeing form the core of our ethos and provision at Haxby Road. Supporting the children’s wellbeing will be our focus over the next few weeks and we will ensure they adapt to the new routines and transitions around school.
A warm welcome is extended to our new families and I hope your child’s time at Haxby Road Academy will be a happy one. We would also like to welcome our new teacher Mrs Fowler in Year 5.
We would like to share our sincere thanks to all our parents and carers who have worked with us to support the return to school in a positive way. We are pleased at how well our new systems are working. Whilst we appreciate the many positive comments received, we will continue to review and improve so our school community remains safe.
Message for the children
Well done to everyone for returning to school with such a positive attitude. You all look extremely smart and eager to see your friends and teachers. When I walk around school you are all working really hard and enjoying your learning. You are working beautifully in your class bubbles. I am also pleased to see that you are washing your hands, sanitising and enjoying your new topic ‘There’s no place like home.’
Today we had a zoom praise assembly to celebrate your hard work. We talked about feelings and what changes our mood. The message in the assembly was to be kind to each other and to support each other at all times.
Please can I remind all our new families to register for our free ParentHub app. We now send all letters and communications out via the app so it is really important that you sign up as soon as possible in order that you don’t miss anything. Thank you.

Please can we remind parents that if you require wrap around care, you must book at least a week in advance to ensure that we can provide your child with a place.
