WEEK 8 - Friday 5 November 2021

Hessle High School provides an education for all, acknowledging that the society in which we live in is enriched by diversity. We strive to recognise and celebrate the diversity within our school community where everyone is equally valued and treats one another with respect and fairness.

Community is at the heart of what makes a strong and safe school environment.  With this in mind we aim that Hessle is a place where:

  • There is a warm, welcoming, happy atmosphere that is secure, stimulating and supportive of learning.
  • We encourage students to do their best to make them feel confident, valued and proud to be themself.
  • Positive relationships are adopted between students, staff and parents/carers
  • Students can achieve to the highest level possible
  • Achievement by others is celebrated
  • Different intelligences are recognised and celebrated
  • Students can pursue many different interests and achieve a broad knowledge of the world to equip them for life

I have been fortunate enough to have worked at Hessle High for 18 years. During this period I have been privileged to see first hand how diverse our community and school environment has become. It provides us with new challenges that we always seek to resolve with our students and families best interests at heart. We are here to listen to your thoughts, your concerns and your suggestions on how we can continuously strive to be the best, most diverse school community there can be. I emphasize the “we”...as it is a massive team effort between all stakeholders to hold each other accountable and deliver the best possible educational experience for our learners. It is not always easy. We don't always get it right the first time. But we as a school, and myself as your child’s Head of Year, will always endeavor to resolve situations if they arise, and to embed policies and structure to the school day to ensure every student has the opportunity to achieve outstanding outcomes. 

I hope you were all able to spend some quality time with your families over the half term break. As the dark nights close in I would ask that you continue to support your children by providing them with the best platform to succeed in school. Simple, clear, daily routines and structure (as mentioned in previous blogs) will ensure that students are ready and prepared for each school day.
