Shenton Primary School

Empowering and nurturing young minds to achieve excellence

News Bulletin May 2022

Dear Parents,

It is lovely to have the warmer weather, to see the children outdoors more often and of course, see them playing more cricket! I hope those of you that celebrated Eid, had a lovely time and enjoyed catching up with more family and friends than we have been able to in recent years.

Year 6 have finished their SATs. Every day last week, they were focussed and did their very best. We will be spending the rest of the term, preparing them for secondary school which will include visits to and from secondary schools, as well as celebrating their primary school experiences and achievements.

Later this term, we will provide you with written reports on your child's progress over the year, where for all year groups, you will have information about how well your child has learned this year's curriculum.

There are lots of events coming up so we look forward to seeing you in school.

As always, if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions, please let us know.

With regards,

Ms Gita


Eid Absences

 As Eid Al-Fitr was on Monday 2nd May, we have been advised by the Leicester City Council that Tuesday, 3rd May cannot be considered as a day off for religious observance. Therefore, if any children were absent on 3rd May for Eid related reasons i.e. celebrating Eid, visiting family or tired. This will have to be marked as unauthorised. 

If you have any questions please see the office.
