Dear IES Hässelby,
A warm welcome to all new and returning students and families to IES Hässelby!
As we begin our second week of lessons, the school year is officially in full-swing. The leadership team has been dropping into lessons this past week, supporting teachers and students and making sure that we all start the year strong.
We have a lot of exciting new changes to look forward to this academic year. Firstly, we are pleased to welcome 12 new qualified teachers to our team. In the fall term, we will begin our all new teacher-led extra-curricular program, offering a variety of clubs for students after school. We will also open a new student cafe at the beginning of September. Students can also look forward to the school's Football Field and Basketball Court outside the A-building being renovated in October.
The teachers, staff and leadership team have also set goals for improvement during 2019/2020, based on feedback from our student and parent surveys from 2018/2019. We aim to improve on our school’s commitment to quality education, discipline and order and student happiness. Our actions for how we intend to reach these goals were shared with students during the first days of school and parents during our parent evening presentations.
We look forward to hearing from both parents and students throughout the year and reaching our goals for school improvement together.
