The Hungate Echo
Sherburn Hungate Weekly News - Autumn Term 2 - Issue 4
A word from Mr Broom.
Donna Makepeace, our Local Authority advisor, visited school on Tuesday to set my targets for the year, and to discuss the next steps for school. Our results over the past couple of years are in need of much improvement and there's lots to do. We have very high expectations of our children and it's important that we exceed them!
On Wednesday, two visiting headteachers came to look at teaching and learning and write a review. They identified many strengths and some key points for us to work on, mainly around how our children are challenged at all times. They commented on the excellent behaviour now in school.
I'm really looking forward to next week. On four of the afternoons, I'll be teaching across all phases and I look forward to seeing you when you come to collect your children at home times.
Thank you for your continued support. Four weeks left! Where has this term gone?
