The Hungate Echo
Sherburn Hungate Weekly News - Summer Term 1 - Issue 4
A word from Mr Broom.
Meanwhile, at the other end of school, our Year 2 children have been taking their SATs tests with Mrs Butterfield and the team in KS1. We keep it very low key so as not to raise any unnecessary pressure on any of our children. I, like many other school leaders, am not a fan of testing!
Our celebration assembly today was lead extremely well by some of our Year 5 children as they prepare to move into Year 6 sooner than we realise!
It seems that what we are doing at Sherburn Hungate now is having a positive impact on the local community and especially prospective parents. I've taken 8 sets of parents around our wonderful school this week, all keen for their children to start in the coming months.
Finally, our attendance is certainly something to celebrate. This week we were yet again well above the national average and long may this continue.

School Uniform & Snack Reminder
We like to encourage our children to have a healthy break time snack and we provide this through school. However, it seems that some children are bringing snacks into school containing sweets/chocolate. These are not permitted.
Congratulations to our Year 5 & Year 6 children who are our attendance champions in school this week with 100%!
Our average attendance this week is a whopping 98.3%. A tremendous achievement.
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.
