A HUGE THANK YOU TO EVERYONE FOR YOUR ATTENDANCE AND PUNCTUALITY! IT HAS BEEN AN AMAZING START TO THE SCHOOL YEAR (SEE BELOW) AND WE ARE CURRENTLY TRYING TO SUPPORT FAMILIES WHERE ATTENDANCE WAS AN ISSUE LAST YEAR. IF YOU RECEIVE A LETTER, PLEASE TRY TO MAKE YOUR APPOINTMENT.

ALSO, A HUGE THANK YOU FOR OUR FUNDRAISING EFFORTS FOR THE CHILDREN’S WARD – A HUGE £1951.60 HAS BEEN HANDED OVER ON YOUR BEHALF. THIS IS TRULY AMAZING.

The first three weeks in school have been hugely enjoyable with good work and excellent behaviour in evidence. School continues to be a happy place where great learning happens.

On Monday, Year 6 visited Discovery Museum to work on immigration as part of our whole school history topic. Mrs Pickering started after school history club, when a select band found out more about Summerhill Square, including a tour of Number 5 Summerhill Grove with Mr Peel, the current inhabitant.

On Tuesday, Year 3 visited Central Library to work with an author, before walking to the baths. Miss Justice arranged a whole school Green Tree Award Assembly, which was very informative.

On Wednesday, Year 6 did a printmaking workshop at the Laing Art Gallery, which was hugely enjoyable. After school, we had our first Maths intervention session for Year 6 and it was great. I am particularly impressed with the way Year 6 are setting such a good example in terms of behaviour and attitude! The after school Aspire Club for girls also took place. This is a very popular and stimulating club.

Please help us by supporting our attendance initiatives. Your support has been amazing so far. This week’s whole school attendance is 99.00%. Every class apart from Reception achieved at least 97% but Years 3 and 6 were the best attenders with 100%. Still, no one has missed a single day in Year 6 in the first three weeks of term. Since the beginning of the academic year, whole school attendance stands at 98.73%, which is unprecedented for us.
