Message from our Headteacher

I am extremely proud to be the Headteacher of Hazel Wood High School and to belong to the Oak Learning Partnership. Hazel Wood is sponsored by Oak LP, and we work together to foster a sense of pride and community in our pupils and provide opportunities for all to excel.

We have professional and highly motivated staff and, in partnership with our young people, parents and governors, we aim to equip young people for the demands of the 21st century by offering every opportunity to excel. Our school is built on the core values of Respect, Responsibility and Aspiration. We aim to ensure that we create a stimulating and disciplined environment, and to recognise that successful education lies in supporting the welfare of the whole child: their safety, health and happiness. By helping our students to develop an understanding of our changing world we will encourage them to become positive contributors to society.

Offering opportunities to excel, we aim to provide all our students with an education that equips them with the skills to achieve their full potential at school and in life. The message to our students is clear- we want them to make the difference and ensure they fulfil their ambitions and aspirations with pride and respect.

I hope you find our website both informative and engaging and please do not hesitate to contact us with any issues, we will be happy to assist and support in anyway we can.

Mr P. Greenhalgh


Message from Oak Learning Partnership

Oak Learning Partnership Trust is the overseeing charitable organisation of a family of schools in the Bury area of Greater Manchester. By working together each school gets significant support to be the best they can be for their learners and communities. Our Trust is committed to improving the life chances of children and young people through the delivery of an excellent, well-rounded education. At Oak we are passionate about inclusion; this is at the heart of our ethos and is a consistent focus in all our schools. We understand that high-quality teaching and support can transform lives and communities. The business and operational support provided by the central team of Oak Learning Partnership allows leaders in schools to focus their attention on ensuring teaching is consistently excellent.

Our schools work closely with one another: they collaborate, support each other and share collective systems across both educational and business provisions. But it’s also important to us that each school has individuality. The CEO and Trustees set highly-ambitious targets, not putting a ceiling on what our staff and young people can achieve. We understand that leaders need autonomy to be accountable for performance and to create schools which serve their communities’ specific needs.

As a Trust we are keen not to over-complicate our approach and we recognise that more often than not, doing the simple things extremely well, consistently, makes the biggest difference to our young people and ensures there is a clarity in what we do.

We are committed to developing partnerships which will contribute to strengthening our current schools. Oak LP and all its partners will always be underpinned by our driving priority: our strong moral purpose which enables us to provide a truly inclusive education and embed our core values of Aspiration, Resilience, and Integrity in everything we do.

COVID Update: Following all the new government advice issued on Sunday 2nd January 2022, we are ready to re-open as planned on Wednesday 5th January 2022. All days, including Wednesday, will be normal school days and we are operating our usual school timings. The only notable change to the National guidance is that we are now again required to wear masks in the classroom, as well as communal areas.

Just some other quick reminders:

Please remember attendance at school remains a legal obligation for all parents and a high priority for us as a school. Every second of education counts.

On our return in January, we will be testing all students that have given prior consent. Please let us know if you would like your son or daughter to be tested, especially if you have not given consent before - and we can send you a consent form.

All our children should bring a mask of their own to wear in January. If your child is exempt, please provide medical evidence and we can arrange for them to wear an exemption lanyard and badge.

Please support us in continuing to follow rules around ventilation and hand sanitising.

Please continue to perform twice-weekly LFT testing at home.

As you know, we continue to drive the school forward in all that we do and one of our main aims is to continue to have high standards of uniform. Can we please emphasise the need for you to support us in making sure this is adhered to, on our return - especially rules around girls not wearing leggings for school; the need for our young people to wear the right shoes and also a reminder that they can only wear one plain ear stud in the ear and no other facial piercings. Please see our Uniform page for more information.

We look forward to welcoming everyone back to school on Wednesday.

How we communicate with you is changing: From September the school will use Parent App to share any messages with you. Please ensure you have downloaded this as we will be moving to this as our only way to communicate with you.

Help is available in our guides (under Parent App Help and Guidance) or by contacting the school where we will help you download the app to ensure you do not miss any important information about your child's education.
