The Hungate Echo
Sherburn Hungate Weekly News - Spring Term 1 - Issue 4
A word from Mr Broom.
Next week we have visiting teachers from other local schools, coming into school to look at the high quality teaching going on. We've also shared training with Appleton Roebuck school on Tuesday for our teaching assistants.
Finally, as the weather gets colder, please be aware of the slippery surfaces around the school during the morning drop-off. NYCC caretaking services didn't grit the paths earlier this week and I can only apologise for the difficult conditions.
Congratulations to our Year 1 children who are our attendance champions in school this week with 98.3%.
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 who's attendance is in 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.
The overall attendance this term is 96.5% and is above national averages. Thank you for your continued support with our attendance drive. It is really appreciated.

Train to Teach with the STAR Alliance
