Three very talented Hayle Academy students took part in a brass band competition last weekend, Morgan Year 9, William Year 9, and Lowenna Year 7 as part of Lanner Brass Academy.

The competition, held in Exmouth, had 12 bands competing. They not only won their section but won the most entertaining band of the day for both their performance inside the pavilions and one for outside in the gardens.

Lowenna played a horn solo and Morgan was part of a cornet fanfare and also played a glockenspiel solo with Lowenna and William playing Djembe drums in the finale.

Well done to all our students, and we are really PROUD of you and your achievements.

Hayle Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare and safety of all students and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We strive to ensure that consistent and effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support families, students and staff at school.

Safeguarding legislation and government guidance says that safeguarding means:

  • Protecting children from maltreatment.
  • Preventing impairment of children’s health or development.
  • Ensuring that children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care.
  • Taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcome.

Safeguarding includes child protection, health care plans, health and safety, site security, supporting vulnerable children, and so much more.

Hayle Academy’s Safeguarding Team consists of:

  • Mrs S Truscott (Designated Safeguarding Lead – DSL / Senior Pastoral Lead).
  • Mr C  Wyatt (Senior Pastoral Lead and Behaviour Lead Year 7 & 8).
  • Mrs E Parker (Behaviour and Progress Lead Year 9, 10 & 11)
  • Mrs L Cole (Pastoral Support Year 9, 10 & 11)
  • Mrs J Clarke (Pastoral Support Year 7 & 8)

The school adheres to legislation and DFE safeguarding documents, including:

-Children’s Act 1989 & 2004
-The Education Act 2002
-Working Together to Safeguard Children 2015
-Keeping Children Safe in Education 2018

-The Prevent Duty 2015

Hayle Academy has policies and procedures in place to deal effectively with child protection and safeguarding issues together with recording and monitoring processes. Hayle Academy works effectively with other agencies and parents/carers when necessary to safeguard young people.

All staff and governors receive annual Child Protection and Safeguarding training and are aware of the procedures for passing on concerns within school.

Hayle Academy employs a strict selection and recruitment policy, which includes all statutory checks on staff and regular volunteers including Enhanced DBS (disclosure and barring service) checks.

If any members of the school or local community have concerns about the welfare of a child or a member of staff in the school, please pass them on to the DSL Team.

Safeguarding Contact Information

Schools in Sierra Leone have few resources, so the children’s books and 100’s of textbooks, donated by Hayle Academy, are extremely valuable to the Sierra Leone Mission, a charity supporting 30 churches and pastors, 23 schools and teachers and an orphanage for street children in Sierra Leone.

There are 500,000 plus street children living in horrendous conditions in Sierra Leone and the St.Ives charity helped the townspeople build the orphanage, called Bethesda, in 2016 that is only able to help a fraction of them.

At Hayle Academy, we feel that students’ personal development is vital to their well being and future success. We have therefore launched ‘Global Values’ across the school in order to facilitate the delivery of:

  • Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development
  • British Values
  • Citizenship
  • Religious Education
  • Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education
  • Relationships and Sexual Education
  • Careers

All students have dedicated curriculum time where they will be given the opportunity to study and discuss these areas in greater detail. Alongside this, Global Values will be a key priority across all elements of curriculum and school life. We will continue to update you on events and activities via the school newsletter. In the meantime, if you have any queries please contact Miss Wilson (Global Values Lead). You may also like to look at these key websites for further information:


This term Hayle Academy welcomed Jan Woodhouse as our new Executive Headteacher, across three secondary schools within the Truro and Penwith Academy Trust, alongside Cape Cornwall School and St Ives School.

Jan’s role at Hayle Academy is focussed on supporting the leadership teams within the school to drive further improvement, developing the school to school partnership and we are already working closely together on approaches to teaching and curriculum development: connecting teachers who share a common passion for their subjects and for supporting children to achieve their full potential.

Mr Martin, as Head of School at Hayle, will continue to manage the day to day organisation and leadership of the Academy. This partnership is a springboard to accelerate Academy development plans and bring rapid and sustained improvement. “We are ambitious for our students and for what we can achieve together through this partnership”.  Jan said,  “I am delighted to have been invited to extend my role as Executive Headteacher across the three secondary schools”.

In addition to our formal curriculum, Hayle Academy offers a wide range of after school clubs, activities, team games etc., which we call Hayle Xtra and we also provide a formal GCSE Study Support programme for students in years 10 and 11.

The aim of our Hayle Xtra and the GCSE Study Support programme is to enrich, extend and enhance our students’ experiences of school life. Hayle Xtra includes courses that lead to qualifications, for example Duke of Edinburgh, First Aid, languages and dance and others that develop interests and hobbies such as drama and sports. The Learning Resource Centre (library) is open daily from 8:00 – 8:45am, 10:30 – 10:45am, 12:25 – 1:25pm and 3:15 – 4:15pm. The various clubs and activities may be seasonal, run for a short period or throughout the year. Full details can be found in our Hayle Xtra booklet.

GCSE Study Support offers specialist support in all subjects to enhance GCSE examination performance.  The majority of sessions are voluntary but where students are not meeting their achievable grades then students will be expected to attend.  Full details can be found in our GCSE Study Support booklet.

Hayle Xtra and GCSE Study Support is normally for one hour from 3:15 to 4:15 pm. A free bus service which leaves the school site at 4:15 pm every day ensures no student is prevented from staying on.

Our  Supporting Success evenings are vital to support students at different stages of their education journey. With our guidance we hope parents feel empowered to work together in supporting their child so they can maximise their potential.

The presentations contain useful dates, contact details and advice on study support.

We have always enjoyed excellent support from parents and we thank you in advance for working with us.
