Wear BLUE on Friday 11th November!

“Hazeldown not only demands high standards in the classroom but also has an ethos which generates confidence and teamwork in all of its students” Grandparent Hazeldown bringing stories to life “Three hours of non-stop entertainment, showcasing the students’ many talents, the commitment of the staff, and the support of the PTA and all who worked to make this ambitious event successful” Grandparent – following our inspiring I-Can performance at the Princess Theatre in Torquay “Thanks to all of you for your kindness and exuberant welcome. You are doing a great job there, all the children were so happy, friendly, polite and courteous” Shoo Rayner - Artist “ A school to be proud of” - Ofsted “Hazeldown children worked with enthusiasm and demonstrated excellent team support and the spirit in which they performed was excellent” - Catherine Kilburn Dartmoor SSP Partnership “Congratulations on achieving the highest level of the Inclusion Award. This is usually reserved for specialist settings, so it reflects the very high quality of your teaching and practice. I think you have all worked extremely hard to improve the outcomes and life chances for the children in your school. It is lovely to see that your consistent efforts have been recognised in this way. Please pass on my delight to your staff” Rose Brooks - Babcock International Residential trips are always great fun and usually involve getting very muddy.

To kick start our anti-bullying week at Hazeldown, we are inviting all pupils to wear BLUE to school on Friday 11th November to show support for this national campaign. 

This may include anything from blue jeans or trousers, a blue top, a piece of clothing with something blue on it, or you could wear something really out there and stand out for bullying. 

For the younger children, you may wish to decorate a blue superhero mask and wear that to support the anti-bullying campaign.

As usual this year, we will also be spreading positive messages and showing our support for anti-bullying week by wearing the blue anti-bullying wristbands. 

Please remember to bring your £2 contribution for the Bigfoot Arts Education group and your blue anti-bullying wristband.

While we continue to raise awareness of anti-bullying, we must always remember that bullying is not about someone who is suddenly rude or mean to us. Bullying is intentional meanness and a repetitive behavior, which happens over a sustained period of time.
