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%

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.
Thank you to everyone who came out on the night!
