Our Star Achievers this Week
A word from Mr Broom.
Unfortunately, we had to deal with quite a nasty altercation on our playground but not between the children! We take any display of anti-social behaviour very seriously and I have taken steps to ensure that this does not happen again. I'd like to thank our wonderful parents and staff who were there to quickly take control of the situation before it escalated. Let's hope that this isolated incident is now well and truly over.
To finish on a positive, words do not do justice to the excellent behaviour we are seeing from our children in and around school. They truly are fantastic and make us all very proud.
Have a lovely week ahead.
For those of you who have completed sponsor forms, please bring in the money on Monday. Thank you.

These are as follows:
Children will line up on the playground at the start of the school day at 0840.
The class teacher/adult will then lead the children into school for registration which will take place at 0845. Children will be considered late if they arrive after this time. They will then need to report to the office with their parent.
The school day will end for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 at 1505.
The school day will end for Years 3 to 6 at 1510. This will allow for parents to collect children in differentyear group phases.
A separate letter detailing these changes will also be distributed.

Wednesday 28 March - Reception - Easter Lunch
Congratulations to our Year 6 children who are our attendance champions in school this week with 100%! Our average attendance this week is 96.6%. Well done everyone!
As you can see below, our attendance in most classes is above the national average which is fantastic. Thank you for your support on this.
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.
