Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome back to a new school year - I hope you all had a peaceful and restful summer holiday!
We are absolutely delighted to see the children return to school safe and well and obviously having enjoyed their very long break! All our children look superb in their school uniform. Thank you for your support in helping to set high expectations with presentation. A special warm welcome to all our new parents and children. We hope you enjoy a long and happy association with ‘Hazlewood’ and that your children will succeed to the very best of their ability during*their time at our school.
I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge welcome to Mr Topham, our new Year 2 teacher and I am delighted to welcome Mrs Bowman back to our school following a year secondment at Monkseaton Middle School.
Welcome to Miss. Bell, our new PEAK Sports Apprentice. Miss. Bell will support our teaching team in delivering high quality PE lessons, as well as leading lunchtime and after-school sporting activities. This appointment re- affirms our commitment in raising the profile of sport and encourage fitness and healthy lifestyles for all our children. They will all make a fantastic addition to our fabulous team at Hazlewood.
Remember that you can follow us on Twitter & Hazlewood PTFA
Our teaching team will be posting news/ photographs and messages on a daily basis. This is an excellent opportunity for all of us to showcase and celebrate the excellent work at Hazlewood Community Primary School.
It is a real privilege to be Hazlewood’s Headteacher since 2016. I am extremely proud of all our team and children at our school. Crucial to the success of our school are the positive relationships that exist between staff, children and parents. These relationships are built on trust and respect; they are highly valued and never taken for granted. For it is only by working together, that we can help our children develop into confident, mature and successful young people. The whole team at Hazlewood is looking forward to another exciting year at our school.

For attendance at a funeral.
For attendance at a wedding of a close family member.
All absences other than for illness should be submitted to the school office, in writing, prior to the date.
Hazlewood Primary School New Fire Alarm Installation
I am delighted to inform you that a new fire alarm system in now in place at our school. Work began on Monday 23rd July and was completed on Saturday 1st September 2018.
My thanks extend to the whole staff team who devoted a considerable amount of their summer holidays preparing their classes for the new academic year. I am wary of identifying individuals because it was very much a team effort. However, I would like particularly to thank Mr Grey and our cleaning team for all their hard work under some very difficult conditions due to certain health and safety restrictions. They ensured that the school was clean and*ready to welcome all our children on Tuesday morning.
