Sherburn Hungate Weekly News - Spring Term - Issue 9

A word from Mr Broom

It's been another exciting week in school with lots happening. Sherburn Hungate's sporting success continued as we became the inter-school's basketball champions for the first time. Some of our Year 6 pupils took part in a French Languages Day at Sherburn High School and we had exploding volcanoes in Early Years! A typical week really.

Our senior leadership team (Mrs Weights, Miss Mackay and myself) observed every teacher in school to look at learning in a variety of subjects and I'm pleased to congratulate the staff team on their outcomes. All teaching was at least good with an ever increasing percentage of outstanding practice. One thing's for sure, our children are getting a great start to their education.

Next week, we have parent consultations and I'm looking forward to welcoming you all into school to meet with class teachers. You will also have the opportunity to take a look through your child's learning journey books and see all the wonderful things they have been learning.

Have a lovely weekend.

School Attendance

It's important that children attend school regularly and at Sherburn Hungate we recognise that excellent attendance leads to excellent achievement. Fact!

Our attendance for this week is 95.8%, which is a little short of our 96% target. Let's hope that next week we'll meet it together.

We know that there's lots of bugs around because we've had staff illness too. However, please help us by sending your children to school when they only have sniffles. If they're not well enough to be here, we will send them home.

Our top attending class this week is Year 1 with 99.2%
