Happy new year to you all – I hope the Christmas break was a happy and healthy one for you. Now that we’ve had one full term in school, this week’s message is a look at attendance for the full Autumn term and information about a parent governor vacancy…
Up to 09 December across England, the attendance rate was 92.7% for all schools and 94.0% for primary schools (this is based on data for schools reporting their attendance figures to the Department for Education).
Up to 16 December, our whole school attendance figure is 95.3% – it’s fantastic that the Scholes (Elmet) Primary data is above national – thank you for helping to ensure your child attends school.
The attendance figure for each class is very similar:
- Sunshine class: 94.8%
- Rainbow class: 94.7%
- Class 1A (Miss Lowry): 94.9%
- Class 1,2B (Mrs Latham): 93.6%
- Class 2C (Miss Young): 94.8%
- Class 3,4A (Miss Paterson): 96.3%
- Class 3,4B (Mr Catherall and Mrs Wilkins): 96.3%
- Class 3,4C (Mrs McCormick & Mrs Wadsworth): 96.0%
- Class 5,6A (Mr Robson): 95.6%
- Class 5,6B (Mrs Hogarth): 95.0%
- Class 5,6C (Mr Lindsay): 96.2%
We recently wrote to all parents and carers regarding a parent governor vacancy, and to seek nominations. As the number of nominations received exceeded the number of parent governor vacancies, it’s now necessary to hold a ballot.
We sent an email out this morning giving details about the voting process. Every parent of a registered pupil at school is eligible to vote.
To vote, use the following link: https://forms.gle/
The ballot closes at 12 noon on 13 January 2023. The result of the election will be confirmed on the school websites.
Have a good weekend.
