Thank you for all your support this week, we could not do this job without the efforts and support from all our parents, carers and our wonderful students. The whole of TeamHG wish you all the very best for Christmas and the New Year.

We are still pushing for our 96% target and here are some lucky winners of "On the Spot" prizes from today!
Lewis D and Emily B, Well Done!
We also celebrated our 100% attendees with one of our famous pizza parties this week as well.
Remember students need to be in to win - more prizes will be handed out tomorrow!
All we can say is WOW!
The show was incredible. Students were singing, acting, playing instruments and dancing their way into the festive period like total pros - making us all smile, laugh and cry with emotion. It was fabulous to see - Well Done to all the students and staff involved and thank you to the friends and families who came to support our young people.
And thank you in advance to those coming tonight and next week. We really appreciate your support.
On Tuesday this week we welcomed Tracey Greenough our deputy CEO for a visit to see Team HG in action. Our students welcomed her in English and a range of other languages during our "Heworth Hello", including; Turkish, Arabic, Chinese, Mandarin and Persian.
She was then taken on a tour by our students and was later treat to a performance of the Christmas show along with 150 primary pupils from our partner schools.
This week a group of Year 11 students went to visit the Sunderland University Medical Facility. They had a fantastic tour, question and answer session and found out about a range of careers such as medicine and nursing.

We hope everyone is well and starting to get into the Christmas spirit!
Our young people are definitely getting excited, the Christmas tree is now up in the dining hall and the activities for the last week are in the final stages of planning.

Students may come to school wearing a Christmas jumper on that day BUT must be in full uniform in every other way and no other decorative Christmas items should be worn.
Students do not need to buy a new jumper – decorating an old jumper is equally fine (and a lot of fun!).
The donation is £2.00 maximum per student, but a £1.00 donation is fine.

Please be aware that there will be an Inset Day on Friday 23rd December and school will not be open for students on that day.
Thank you again for your continued support with attendance. On Monday we had one of the highest attendance figures in the Trust, and we continue to make progress and improve. It was fantastic to hear all the cheers and shouts as England scored goals on Monday afternoon coming from every corner of the school and the students were great supporters. In the morning they discussed the importance of the world cup but also some big questions around the World Cup being held in Qatar this year. We heard some very interesting debates on Monday morning.
Thank you to everyone who donated cakes, biscuits, sweets or chocolate or provided pocket money for the Tuck Shop on Friday. The event was a phenomenal success, the queue at break time was huge, so much so that we had to put the sale on at lunchtime as well. We raised £360.00 from the ‘Tuck Shop’ sale for Children In Need.
On Tuesday the Year 10 and 11 students interested in careers in fashion were invited to hear from one of the lecturers at Sunderland University to find out about careers and degrees in this sector. The students were an absolute credit to the school and were engaged throughout the session.
On Wednesday we welcomed teams from Washington and Thornhill for the Faraday Challenge. This is an annual science competition where Year 8 students worked in teams to solve science problems, using Faraday currency to buy equipment from their Faraday budget. Well done to all the students involved!
On Friday we are hosting the Consilium SEND conference for SENDCos across the Trust. We are looking forward to showing Trust colleagues around the Innovation Centre and Pitstop as well as having some focused conversations about how we can continue to improve our provision for our SEND students.
Please let us know if you have any questions or queries by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We always say it is good to talk but if you feel that you have done that and your issue has not been resolved, or you still have an issue please refer to our complaints' procedure which can be found by clicking here.
