The Hungate Echo
Sherburn Hungate Weekly News - Summer Term 1 - Issue 5
A word from Mr Broom.
The steady stream of new parents visiting school has also continued this week. It seems our popularity is on the rise following the hard work of our team to provide a wonderful place where children can learn and flourish. I feel very proud walking into our classrooms to see hard-working, happy children in all areas.
Meanwhile, I've been working hard with our admin team to streamline many of the front-office processes such as the pupil registration forms ready for next academic year. I must admit, I'm really looking forward to next Friday when I'm taking five of our children to Pizza Hut for lunch. They've achieved five golden stars and deserve a special treat.

Nursery Applications for September 2018
A quick reminder that children need to protect themselves from the sun and when it's hot, please make sure your child has a sun hat. Baseball caps can be bought through ParentPay.
We have a small number of baseball caps available at a cost of £3.00, however our uniform suppliers have increased their prices for many uniform items and, whilst we are hoping to absorb the additional costs for most items, the cost of our baseball caps will increase to £4.00 after half term.

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 children who are our attendance champions in school this week with 99.5%!
Our average attendance this week is 95.8%.
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.
