A word from Mr Broom

Brrrrr! What a cold start to the week we had. I must say what a fantastic job Mr Wooffindin did to make our site nice and safe. I arrived on Tuesday morning at 7am to find him checking all the paths with a shovel of grit in his hand.

It's been an exciting week. Our Y5 children visited Sherburn High School and I have to say, it was lovely to hear of the very positive comments from the teaching staff up there who said our children were the best behaved groups they had. A proud moment for me.

Today our KS1 children are out of school visiting the Magna Science Museum near Sheffield. I know they'll be having a super time.

Finally, on a more serious note, can I ask that parents refrain from parking on the yellow lines at the top of the school gates. While I realise it's not easy parking on a morning, I'd hate for a child to harmed through something that's avoidable. Thank you in advance for your support with this.

Have a great weekend.

The Sherburn Voices sing Complicated. Enjoy!

Snaps from the week!

School Attendance - Termly Review

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 94.4%, which is well below the national average. It's important that we all work on this so that we keep our our attendance up!

Our top attending class this week is Year 4 with 97.5%!

Snaps from the week!
