The Hungate Echo
Sherburn Hungate Weekly News - Autumn Term - Issue 14
A word from Mr Broom
You can feel the festive buzz around school, especially after what can only be described as amazing nativity performances by our Reception and Key Stage 1 children. Their performances were sensational and really put us all in the Christmas spirit.
We don't do Christmas jumper day at Sherburn Hungate... we do Christmas dress up week! All next week, we'd like to invite everyone to wear something a little Christmassy with their usual uniform. I've got my jumper ready and can't wait!
Have a lovely final week before the holidays. It's party time!

Swearing - NOT TOLERATED - EVER!

Ski Trip Information
It's important that children attend school regularly and at Sherburn Hungate we recognise that excellent attendance leads to excellent achievement. Fact!
Congratulations to our Reception children who are our attendance champions in school this week with 97.7%!
Our average attendance this week is 95.1% which is the lowest attendance we've had in school since September 2017!
We have a small number of children whose attendance is well below the national expectations. These children are known as persistently absent when their attendance falls below 90%. I will be making telephone calls to parents of these children.
Thank you for your continued support with our attendance drive. It is really appreciated.
