Our weekly message (Friday 19 April 2024)

Friday 19 April 2024

We hope your Easter break was a good one. As usual in our first message of the term, we kick off with an attendance update…

Attendance matters

For the full Autumn and Spring terms (04 September 2023 to 28 March 2024), our whole school attendance figure is 94.3%. This is above the national figure for all schools (93.0%), although it’s a little below the national figure for primary schools (94.6%).

Here’s how each year group is doing:

Well done to Class 3,4 (Mr Kilner’s class) for their amazing attendance!

Don’t forget our second Attendance Prize Draw this half-term. All pupils with attendance of 96% or higher will be entered into a prize draw to win a £50 Love to Shop vouchers! And remember, arriving late affects a child’s overall attendance figure, and that might mean they lose out on the prize draw – and misses valuable learning at the start of the day.

Special needs support

Leeds SENDIASS (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Information Advice Support Service) have some drop-in sessions coming up if you’d like to receive information and advice about SEND services in Leeds. They’re also running a series of specific events.

Contact details

Finally, a quick reminder: if there are any new contact details for you or other people on our records, please remember to let us know. We need up-to-date details for the people on our lists in case of emergencies. (The people on our lists are the ones you gave us when your child started school – in most cases, this will be three different people.)
