Head's Welcome

A Warm Welcome to Huxlow

At Huxlow we believe that students who are happy, feel safe and are taught well will enjoy school and as a result be successful.

We are passionate about caring for our students, ensuring that they are all known as individuals. Ofsted June 2016 stated that “everyone in the school puts pupil’s well-being at the centre of everything they do”.

Students are challenged to be as good as they possibly can be and supported to achieve this. Academic success is hugely important to us and we have a rich history of students of all abilities and from a wide variety of backgrounds achieving as well as they could.

However, schools are about far more than academic success and we believe that developing “The Whole Child” is one of our core responsibilities. In order to enjoy a successful adult life it is important that our students develop characteristics such as leadership, organisation, resilience, initiative, and communication.

I am hugely proud of our school and am happy to extend an invitation to all Parents/ Carers to come and visit us during the school day. Please contact us on enquiries@huxlow.northants.sch.uk and we will arrange a convenient time.

Mr S Gordon

Safeguarding Message: 27 Sept 2017

Advice to parents:

Who is your child “friends” with on Social Media?

Further to recent inappropriate requests on Instagram to some of our students, we advise you to check your child’s social media accounts.  Some students are ”friends” with people they do not know, making them vulnerable to indecent requests and/or propositions.

Students will be spoken to about online safety specifically related to this incident using the CEOP ‘Online Friends’ material and advice.  Please also take the time to sit down with your child to check their online friendships.  If you have any concerns do not hesitate to block inappropriate friends, add strict privacy settings and parental controls to safeguard your child.  If you think your child has been exposed to inappropriate contacts phone the Police and report it, or contact the school for advice.
