Hayle Academy places a high priority on ensuring a safe and orderly learning environment for all members of the school community. Please read our policy below on banned substances:
Each week a different event, celebration or commemoration is studied and discussed in tutor time as part of the Global Values curriculum. This gives students the opportunity to reflect upon current affairs, historical events and national and international campaigns.
Pease note, if world, national or local events take place that we feel may impact upon the students, the schedule may be adjusted throughout the year.
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
- Religious Education
- Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education
- Relationships and Sexual Education
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:
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.
Academic Year 2019-20:
At Hayle Academy we aim to ensure that students with special educational needs and disabilities are given every opportunity to experience success, achievement and fulfilment in their work. We aim to provide educational, emotional and technical support in a positive learning environment and ultimately provide an inclusive education for students. We are committed to offering an education to ensure the best possible progress for all of our students whatever their needs or abilities.
Hayle Academy aims to meet the educational needs of students with SEN including those with Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP). Hayle Academy’s SEN processes reflect the SEN Code of Practice 2015, where a graduated response to supporting the student’s needs is identified. We may undertake early intervention in order to support students with any difficulties they may be experiencing; the aim is to support students to develop independence as they progress through the academy, helping them to prepare for their exams and life beyond Hayle Academy.
Our SEN team is led by our SENCO Mr James Woodward with teaching assistants who a specialist in Autism, dyslexia, hearing and sight, English, maths and science. The SEN team are then supported within faculties with our SEN & Literacy Lead Teachers who act as advocates for our SEN students and lead teachers in SEN.

As with any large organisation Hayle Academy has a series of policies and procedures that help clarify the way we operate. Some of these are statutory, some are advisory and some are individual to our school. A full set is available at the school but on this website we have placed those policies that are most frequently requested.
Policies are reviewed regularly by the Local Governing Body, or produced by the Trust, some annually and some on a two or three year cycle. The most up-to-date versions are included here.

Hayle Academy is committed to providing a full educational experience for ALL students.
We believe that, if students are to benefit from a broad and balanced curriculum in which they achieve their full potential, good attendance is crucial. Any problems that impede full attendance will be identified and addressed as quickly as possible.
If your child is absent from school, for any reason, please contact our Attendance Officer (Miss F Fulton) on 01736 800556 or email on firstname.lastname@example.org
It is important that you inform the school as early as possible, on each day that your child is absent.
Hayle Academy uses the funding from the Pupil Premium Grant to support all vulnerable young people to achieve their full potential. The research to date suggests that schools can make a significant difference to the achievement of these students. We are committed to ensuring that all students make good progress regardless of their starting point and background. We are working towards ensuring that all students who attend the school are in the best position to have the opportunity to choose to lead a fulfilling life and make a difference in society. Our Pupil Premium Strategy is guided by this philosophy.
We offer an extensive package of internal and external support through our Inclusion and Student Support Teams as well as targeted intervention across all subject areas where support is needed to remove barriers to learning.
For parents/guardians wishing to find out more about whether this grant applies to them and their son/daughter or if you would like assistance with your application please contact Student Reception at email@example.com or 01736 753009
Pupil Premium Summary Statements 2018-19:
At Hayle Academy the student welfare system is designed to provide a caring and structured environment to help all our students achieve their academic potential and to help them develop as considerate and responsible young people. We take the welfare of each child seriously because we recognise that social and emotional well-being is pre-requisite for good learning.
We are fortunate to have the Hub, from which all our student support services operate. These include two full time Support Officers and two Support Assistants as well as many professionals from other external support services. These professionals can work with students here on site and save on valuable school time.
However, at the heart of a successful secondary school experience is a strong home-school-student relationship which has to be based on good communication. We constantly strive to ensure that we follow our academy motto of “Proud To Be Hayle” and are always looking to improve the communication systems we have; we welcome ideas from parents and students if there is something we could be doing better.
