A new year often brings new opportunities and a fresh outlook, and I know I am optimistic that 2022 will bring much achievement, inspiration and happiness to all.
We have started the new term as always with enthusiasm and motivation and are excited to see how we can help develop our children’s potential and nurture their well-being and self-esteem. We are keen to ensure they are provided the essential academic input and are also encouraged to be the best they can, as a student at Huntington Primary Academy. We promote the importance of having a growth mindset: this allows our children to progress personally in the way they view others and themselves; our values of resilience, tolerance, perseverance and, ultimately, CARE (consider and respect everyone) are at the heart of the experiences we provide here on a daily basis.
I will continue to work hard as the Acting Headteacher until August 2022 and during these coming two terms our trustees will appoint my successor. Until then my team and I will do our absolute best to ensure your children feel integral to the Huntington team we have here; that they feel part of a community where they are confident, valued, listened to, and encouraged to work hard and play hard; where they develop skills, gain knowledge and learn about themselves as an individual, a member of the school community, as a York and as a British citizen
The spring term sees our children al continue their learning journey. Our team of teachers and teaching assistants are already asking the children in Early Years, ‘I wonder…where in the world we live?’ Y1 will be thinking about transport and will be inspired by York’s famous railway museum and Yorkshire’s Amy Johnson and her pioneering flight. Year 2 will be taking a trip through York’s Chocolate Story and exploring all things chocolatey! Year 3 will be exploring Italy as another European city, and understanding how the Romans, in particular, have influenced the York we know today. In Year 4 the children will be comparing how living in York compares to living in West Africa. Year 5 will be asking questions about the way explorers in the past have influenced their lives in York today and Year 6 will enjoy thinking about how discoveries have shaped the world we live in today!
For more information about the term’s topics, do head to our curriculum pages on this website.
Our school curriculum is designed carefully to provide relevant and engaging learning experiences for all our pupils, and sessions are planned by staff who are keen to see the enthusiastic faces and wow moments when children learn something new. Our curriculum has evolved around our key school drivers: Community, Global Citizenship and Personal, Health and Social Education, and we constantly think about the ‘whole child’ living in their local and wider world as we develop these learning experiences and opportunities for our pupils.
This year more than ever we will be working alongside our parents/carers and community partners to develop opportunities for pupils throughout the year and we recognise that partnership with families is and will remain central to all our work. We value and encourage the involvement of our families in all aspects of school life, believing that it makes a real difference for the children in our care. Our eSchools app, email, our school website and our Twitter account are all used regularly to ensure we keep our community updated and included in school life.
I am proud of the school community we are continuing to build and of the incredible growth mindset our children develop throughout their time at Huntington.
They demonstrate such resilience and a clear tolerance of each other and of difference. Each child benefits from the care they show each other and that they offer to the wider community in projects such as the Archbishops award; they benefit from the kindness they display to us all on a daily basis.
Here at Huntington Primary Academy, we promote physical and mental well-being, the importance of being an independent learner and the idea of aspiring for future goals, we strive to be the best we can be and we…
‘Consider and Respect Everyone‘
We genuinely CARE!
With warm wishes,
Mrs Anne Forman
