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 on 01736 800556 or email on attendanceofficer@hayleacademy.net

It is important that you inform the school as early as possible, on each day that your child is absent.

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.

Should you have any queries about any of these policies or any other areas of school practice please contact us through the contact page on this website.


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 enquiries@hayleacademy.net or 01736 753009

HA Pupil Premium Strategy 2020-21


At Hayle Academy, we are extremely proud of our special educational needs provision and the opportunities and support given to our students with additional needs so that they can experience success, achievement and fulfilment during their time at our school.   We are committed to offering an education that ensures the best possible progress and outcomes for all of our students whatever their needs or abilities and prepare them for happy and successful lives at and beyond Hayle Academy.

Hayle Academy SEN team is an incredibly flexible and proactive team who are always striving to meet the needs of our learners and go above and beyond in the support of our students.  This may be via our key person approach where every child on the SEN register has their own key person who stays with them throughout their journey through the school and offers opportunities to mentor and support or via our targeted interventions such as our Accelerate English and Maths programmes, additional before school and after school support or Nurture provision or support within the classroom.

The first stage of support is always high quality teaching within the classroom with practices designed to support all learners such as information retrieval exercises, assessment for learning, chunking of information, knowing all learners, providing resources to support and use of metacognition and modelling.  If students then need further support this could then be targeted support such as use of the SEN team within lessons, technology, interventions or for higher needs students, it could be via specialist support from teaching assistants or external specialists.

Our SEN team is led by our SENCO, Mr James Woodward and our Assistant SENCO Vicky Roberts.  The team is formed from teaching assistants who have specialist areas of expertise such as autism, dyslexia, coordination, physical impairment, social and emotional health, working memory and dyscalculia.  Our team work within classrooms often in specialist areas, running interventions and meeting with their mentees.

If you have any queries, questions or would like to discuss SEN at Hayle Academy, please contact our SENCO James Woodward (james.woodward@hayeacademy.net) or our Assistant SENCO Vicky Roberts (vicky.roberts@hayleacademy.net).


Our SEN Team comprises:
