Safer Internet Day @ Hacton

Safer Internet Day 2017 was celebrated globally on 7th February and pupils at Hacton Primary School were keen to get involved. The day offered the opportunity to highlight positive uses of technology and to explore the role we all play in helping to create a better and safer online community. Pupils had enthusiastic discussions about the use of the internet in their classes and looked at the use of images on social media sites. Many children were surprised at how public any image placed online becomes. Finishing the day, children joined together in assembly to remind themselves of the dangers associated with social media with a particular focus on using images carefully.

How to check if school opening is affected by severe weather

It would seem an appropriate time to remind you of how to check if school opening is affected by the weather. In the event of severe weather, we will make a decision about school opening by 8 am at the latest and post the information on our blog, social networks and the OpenCheck service. ParentMail subscribers should receive an email or text message shortly after 8 am on the day of any school closure. Please check online sources before trying to ring the school.

Happy New School!

Happy New Year! We trust that you had a fantastic Christmas break and are ready for all that 2017 promises to bring.

We have had an amazing first day in our brand new school. Full of enthusiasm and excitement, children headed eagerly this morning to their new classrooms. After familiarising themselves with the new building and practising routines, everyone settled quickly back into normal school life.

Joining together for a whole school assembly at the end of the day provided a wonderful opportunity to reflect on how we all felt about the changes involved with moving to our new school. Despite different school routines, shiny paintwork and our magnificent new building one thing remains the same: our outstanding pupils. 

We are so proud with how each and every child settled so calmly into their new surroundings as they continued on their Hacton learning journey.
