  • Football Tournament

    Year 3 and 4 took part in an inter schools football tournament where we fielded a girls and boys team. With many competing in their first ever football match, let alone tournament, all the adults in attendance were extremely proud! It was fantastic to see so many superb examples of teamwork, resilience and, I am very happy to say, goals! With both sides recording multiple victories, all the pupils left the pitches tired but very happy. Congratulations to all that took part.

  • #LetGirlsPlay

    On Friday 8th March, girls from Years 5 and 6 enjoyed an opportunity to play football at Haverstock Secondary School in support of #LetGirlsPlay. It was a tremendous occasion and the girls were proud to represent our school team after taking part in an inter-school league earlier in the year.

    After arriving at Haverstock, the girls took part in a morning training session, spurred on by young leaders at Haverstock, who cheered them on and boosted their resilience. They were ready and excited to take part! During the games, our pupils rose to the challenge playing fantastic football against secondary school pupils. Whilst there, they also met some VIPS, including Fara Williams,  Sir Keir Starmer and Mark Bullingham! These famous faces were friendly and supportive and helped our girls realise the importance of the initiative. The girls spoke with confidence whilst being interviewed about how much football means to them.

    Back at school, our Year 6 girls supported Hawley’s younger players during our #LetGirlsPlay training session. They ran their own events for almost 50 girls in Years 1-6!

    Overall, it was a fantastic opportunity and we hope to encourage more girls to take part in sporting activities and events in the future!

Please keep an eye out for a letter coming home.

  • World Book Day!

    At Hawley, we are celebrating by dressing up as a character from a book. Remember, there is no need to buy anything new, but instead think creatively about what you have at home. Ask your child about the book they are reading in class. Could they come as one of the characters? We will be holding a World Book Day Parade on Thursday to enjoy all the wonderful costumes!

  • Zebra Crossing

She has arranged for a meeting to take place at   Castlehaven, with her  and TFL to discuss the issue on Thursday 8th February 6:30pm  We need as many parents as possible to attend the meeting
