I will be Acting Headteacher until August 2022 and during this coming academic year 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.
This autumn term sees our Early Years children start their learning journey with their sparkly new curriculum. Our very excited team of teachers and teaching assistants are extremely keen to find out, ‘What our children know and what they can learn by exploring!’ Y1 will be thinking about light and fire and be inspired by the illuminating qualities of these. Year 2 will be taking a virtual trip to Africa and learning about the wonderful animals and cultures they will find on their journey, and Year 3 are visiting a time when the dinosaurs roamed the Earth. In Year 4 the children will be travelling back in time to understand how the Vikings ruled England. Year 5 will be immersing themselves in World War II and Year 6 will enjoy thinking about a world of water!
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
