Haughton School


To all our parents and carers


Good morning all,

The weekend has brought some strong messages from Government and we all need to make sure we are observing social distancing requirements whenever possible. A clearer message has now emerged regarding the attendance of children with EHC plans. The overwhelming advice is that for the majority of children, it is safer for them to stay at home. Therefore, there is no expectation that children with an EHCP must attend school. As a school we are doing our best to manage the numbers of children in Haughton and making a judgement about whether a school place is critical. Even in the case of key workers, children may not necessarily need a place every day.

“It is important to underline that schools, all childcare settings (including early years settings, childminders and providers of childcare for school-age children), colleges and other educational establishments, remain safe places for children. But the fewer children making the journey to school, and the fewer children in educational settings, the lower the risk that the virus can spread and infect vulnerable individuals in wider society”. (DfE advice to schools).

Please can we ask you to carefully consider whether it is essential that your child is in school. If someone is at home to look after them the children should be at home too.
Thank you for your continued support as we all work together to protect our children and ourselves.

Welcome from the Headteacher

At Haughton School we strive to help each child develop their academic, social and practical abilities to their highest level. To help each child achieve self-confidence, initiative and independence. We achieve this through a school community based on caring, sharing and learning. With relationships between children, parents, governors and school staff based on mutual trust and respect.
