Weekly News


Attendance matters!

Good attendance is 95% and is expected of all children.

Schools are open to pupils 190 days of the year which allows 175 days for holidays, rest and non-urgent appointments.

Good attendance means that pupils have the best chance to:  

  • keep up with school work
  • meet their expected progress
  • meet friends to learn and play with
  • learn good habits for adult life like regular attendance and arriving on time

Attend. Achieve. Succeed.

Test Weeks

Good attendance and punctuality at school is always important, but it is especially important over the next few weeks, especially from:

Tuesday 2nd May – Wednesday 10th May

The children are completing their Standardised Assessment tests in Maths, Reading and Spelling throughout the school.  The Reading and Maths tests from Year 2 – Year 6 are National Assessment tests.  

These are VERY important tests as they help to support the teacher’s assessment of the children’s progress throughout the year. 

The Year 6 results are also used by the High School as a Baseline from which they group the children.

After School Clubs

After school clubs for this term will resume on:

Monday 8th May

a timetable is on the back of this newsletter.
