The Hungate Echo
Sherburn Hungate Weekly News - Summer Term 2 - Issue 1
A word from Mr Broom.
While we are talking about differences, our Sports Day this year was a huge success. Thank you to everyone who came out to support us and our wonderful children. There were many highlights. Seeing the older children support the younger ones during their events was certainly my favourite but also recognising the achievements of individuals in their sporting prowess was also magical.
Meanwhile in school, Miss Horner and Miss Mackay took part in the North Yorkshire Writing Moderation for KS2. This is to check our judgements for accuracy against the national picture. I am delighted to say that their judgements were 100% accurate, meaning that the hard work of all staff involved this year has paid off. Here's our four year trend for writing in KS2. You will see we have managed to buck the trend here. A fantastic achievement.

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 97.2%!
Our average attendance this week is 94.6%. It seems that the bout of Chicken Pox in Early Years is taking its toll!
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.
