You will have heard the government announcement this week, that schools will not reopen until the 8th March at the earliest.  I know this may feel daunting as you continue to juggle work, family life and supporting your children with online learning.  We continue to be here to provide any support that we are able to; please do not hesitate to get in touch if you need any help.  The mental health of all the children in our care continues to be a priority for us.  I am acutely aware that increased isolation, lack of social contact with their friends and the pressures of social media are very difficult to navigate for young people.  Mind offer some useful advice for supporting teenagers in lockdown:

Despite the challenges we all face as we live through this period of change and uncertainty, there is still much to celebrate at HAWI.  The students have completed a survey this week on their experience of remote learning and they are exceptionally positive.  We are thrilled that 86% of students are either ‘very satisfied’ or ‘satisfied’ with their remote education. This is due to the hard work of their teachers, as well as the resilience and independence that students have shown working from home. Where students were ‘unsatisfied’ this was largely due to access issues to remote teaching caused by slow internet or computer access - please contact the Academy if your child is struggling to access their online lessons. We had a number of lovely comments from individual students, including: “I would like to thank all my teachers because they have been working very hard lately to give me such amazing lessons”. We are reflecting on our remote learning programme all the time, and working hard to make sure that your child is able to learn from home. If you do have further suggestions for us, please do not hesitate to email
