Essential Information

The purpose of this part of the website is to provide you with all the essential information you need to make your transition from year 6 to 7  as smooth as possible. On this page you can find information based on the following areas:

  • School Day
  • Key Dates
  • Equipment
  • Uniform
  • Behaviour
  • Student wellbeing

If you don’t find the answers to your questions please contact our pastoral team using the emails provided and they will be very happy to support you.

School Day

Below is a breakdown of your lessons per day while you are at Haven High Academy. As you can see you have more lessons on a Wednesday this is to allow more room for extra lessons linked to PSHE. Don’t worry if you don’t remember the timings at first, many members of the team will be at hand to support you in the initial weeks of year 7.

Every student will be given a folder of information that consists of key work for each term for each specific subject.

You will be expected to bring an A4 ring binder folder to put that work in.

Your ‘Home Learning’ will then be work based on your Knowledge Organiser.

You will get two pieces of Home Learning per night. Each piece will be approximately 20 minutes worth of work. Therefore, you will always receive 40 minutes of Home Learning per night.

You will be informed of a timetable for Home Learning on your entry to Year 7.

Some of the tasks in our academic work booklet are set out like Knowledge Organisers. This should show you what they look like.

If it is a problem of a more personal nature, problems with bullying, problems at home; Mr Miles and Mrs Bates will deal with it.

Anti-Bullying at Haven High Academy

The schools anti-bullying policy and school documentation can be obtained from the school website at the following location: Key Information

A Haven High Academy we believe that all students, whatever their race, culture, gender, faith, sexual orientation, physical or intellectual abilities have the right to:

  • a safe and secure environment at school and on the way to and from school
  • concentrate on their educational progress without fearing others

We promote an environment which teaches students respect for others and where all members of the academy are encouraged to contribute to a caring and effective atmosphere.

All students are encouraged to speak to a member of staff if they are being made to feel uncomfortable at school or if they witness this happening to others.

Bullying cannot be dealt with if the academy is unaware of the problem so please make sure you report your worries to a trusted member of staff so actions can be taken. You can report bullying to any member of staff within the Academy and they are legally required to pass on this information to the key pastoral staff as shown below so actions can be taken.

Bullying can take many forms:

  • Physical – hitting, kicking, and taking belongings
  • Verbal – name calling, insulting, making offensive remarks.
  • Indirect – spreading nasty stories about someone, exclusion from social groups, being made the subject of malicious rumours, sending malicious e- mails or text messages on mobile phones.
  • Cyber-bullying, aggression using electronic forms of contact such as e-mail, text, chat rooms, social network, social messaging, on-line gaming.
  • Coercion – forcing somebody to do something they do not want to do.

Bullying is not tolerated at Haven High academy.

If you (your child) experiences any form of bullying they should speak to their form tutor or Mr Miles/Mrs Bates who will investigate the issue. This could result in sanctions against the bully in line with our behaviour system.


Making Friends

 

  • Be pleasant to those around you (including teachers)
  • Work hard and be someone people look up to.
  • Invite someone to eat lunch with you.
  • Join a Club
  • Speak to people on your journey to/from school.
  • Making friends at a new school is easy and your form tutor will help you with tasks and challenges in your form time.
