Last week we held our 100% Attendance Winners Reward Day for the Autumn Term. We had 185 winners, and they were rewarded with a Daylight Disco where they danced the day away! We are so proud to celebrate our children’s achievements in attendance, and we recognise that the support of parents makes all the difference in this matter. So far, we have had an excellent start to the Spring Term too, and we hope this continues towards Easter.
If you encounter any difficulties in getting your child to school, then please contact Mrs Mulkeen, our Family Outreach Officer, who will be able to offer you support.
I am pleased to announce the winners of our Spring Term Attendance Awards!
Whole School Best Class Attendance Awards for the Spring Term go to:
1st Place â€“ 4b with 97.3%
2nd Place â€“ 2b with 97.2%
3rd Place – Rb with 95.2%
Overall there were 156 children who won 100% Attendance for the Spring Term. This is a huge achievement and we are incredibly proud of each of the children who won. They will be invited to take part in a Daylight Disco tomorrow afternoon to reward them for coming to school every single day since Christmas. Come back to the blog to see photographs after the event!
I would like to give a special mention to the following pupils who all worked very hard to improve on their attendance and/or their punctuality. They each won a small gift.
Zayan, Tyesha, Alessandro, Callum, Kacie, Brooke, Courtney, Sana and Anisa – Well Done!
We are getting close to our target of reduced lateness. This week there were 33 children who arrived late for school. Letâ€™s see if we can bring that figure lower than 30 before we break for Easter!
Parents – please remember to try to make appointments and check-ups outside of the school day. We understand that hospital appointments are difficult to rearrange and so allowances are made for these.
Our 100% Attendance Award day is next Wednesday 1st April. The children who win will be invited to take part in a Daylight Disco during the afternoon, and should bring party clothes with them to change into.
Attendance Awards on 27th March go to: 1st Place â€“ 4b with 99.6%
2nd Place â€“ 2b with 98.3%
Joint 3rd Place – Ra with 96%
FS â€“ Rb
KS1 â€“ No winners 🙁
KS2 â€“ 4a and 6a

It was brilliant to see so many of you come out to the Disco on the 18th October! Everyone had a fantastic time dancing to the music that DJ Barry played. We saw some amazing dancing from Joe in 3b, Korie in 4a and even Mr Hanes showed us some moves!
We managed to raise Â£140 which will be donated to Oldham Cats in Middleton. Mr and Mrs Hanes volunteer tirelessly for the charity, and as a school we have enjoyed seeing and hearing about the work they do.
