The Hungate Echo
Sherburn Hungate Weekly News - Summer Term 1 - Issue 3
A word from Mr Broom.
Meanwhile in school, I met with our dedicated lunchtime team to discuss changes to the routines and menus for September. We're having a big focus on healthy eating and healthy minds and we hope to become the leading school in the new Multi-Academy Trust (The STAR MAT) that we have joined for whole-child wellbeing. Miss Mackay will be leading on this and has already begun to attend the training days in preparation. Watch this space!
Finally, it's the bank holiday weekend and the weather looks like it's going to be good for once. I hope you enjoy the break and the short week next week. Remember, our children return to school on Tuesday.

Our Star Achievers this Week
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.
Tri Golf Success
We've also been given some information about various Gala Competitions that are taking place including a colouring competition, treasure hunt and a dog show! Please ask at the office if you would like more details.
Congratulations to our Year 4 children who are our attendance champions in school this week with 99.4%!
Our average attendance this week is a whopping 96.3%. The second time this year that all year groups have been above the magic 96%. 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.
