Thanks so much to everyone who helped last week with our drive to raise standards of attendance and punctuality throughout 2016.  We reached our target of 96%, which was brilliant!  Now we have to achieve that every week!  I really appreciate the fact that you’re working with us and this is an example of our partnership at its best!

As I explained in Newsham News last week, everything we are striving to achieve at Newsham is only possible if the children are actually in school.  Please trust us to care for your children who may have coughs, colds, aches and pains.  We can arrange indoor playtime for individual children who aren’t feeling fully well but our school is warm, dry and we have a whole team of staff qualified in first aid so on lots of occasions, we are fully equipped to deal with children feeling a little under the weather.  Please just phone us and check if you are not sure if your child is well enough to attend school.  Thanks so much for your support.
