In summary

Secondary schools are being asked to provide some face-to-face support to supplement the remote education of year 10 and year 12 students who are due to take key exams next year, alongside the full-time provision they are offering to priority groups. We do not expect these pupils to return to school or college on a full-time basis at this stage, and so we do not expect a full timetable to be offered as schools and colleges look to minimise the number of pupils in school or college each day. Schools and colleges should consider how best to use additional year 10 and 12 time to support these pupils who are starting their final year of study for GCSEs, A levels and other qualifications next academic year.

Once we have planned how Haughton Academy will provide some safe extra face-to-face support to our Year 10 pupils we will write to parents. All other year groups, year 7,8 and 9 should continue to work safely at home with their remote learning via on-line resources or their work packs.

Update (07/5/2020)

For any of our Year 6 families who will be joining Haughton Academy in Septmeber please note there is a dedicated Year 6 Information page on the website. Please clck here to be directed to that page. We will post any updates regarding the rearranged transition programme on this page.

Update (07/5/2020)

FSM families please check your emails to access your food voucher code every week. There are still a number that have not been redeemed this week.

Update (24/4/2020)

For the attention of FSM parent/carers

We have been advised from the DFE that as of next week we must use the national FSM system provided by Edenred and stop using Wonde. This in line with all of the other secondary schools in Darlington. The system is set up so that you will receive a weekly email with your £15 voucher for you to spend on food in the same way but via email and not text. Please keep safe and healthy.
