Mr Mayer's News

November 2022

Dear Families,

Well, here we are at the end of May, with five terms down and one to go before the end of the school year, and it looks like we are seeing a change for the better in the weather.


It has been a busy term with loads going on - sports events, residential activity days for year 4, trips and visitors and of course the SATs assessments for children in year 2 and year 6.


Term 6 promises to be just as busy with more trips planned, more sports competitions and festivals to take part in and summer productions- some of our year 5 children will even be taking part in an original show at the Watermill Theatre.



School Values

Your child may have been coming home and talking to you about our school values. These are the bedrock on which we base everything that happens in school and they are the qualities that we hope all our children will have by the time they are adults. Every week we focus on one particular value but they are all referred to throughout the week.

This week for example the Value we are focused on is


However, we also want our children to show:

Responsibility; Community–mindedness; Resilience; Aspiration; Curiosity.

Please talk to your children about our school values and see if they can show them at home as well.

Just a reminder that this is the single most important thing you can do with your child. Please find the time to listen to them read and also to read to them. Children love hearing stories from adults especially parents, grandparents or other family members.

Children who read and are read to at home are considerably more likely to do well at GCSE and go on to University or apprenticeships than those who don’t. Their life chances are greater.

Every week in assembly we celebrate those children who have managed to read at home at least 5 times in the previous week. I look forward to the day when this is every child.

Friends of Hungerford Primary School

The school PTA is a vitally important group who over the years have raised many thousands of pounds to help our children.

However, they need people to take on the roles of Chairperson & a Vice Chair to lead them after the ‘Covid years’ so they can continue to support the school. Without these people in place, the PTA will be unable to continue when extra fundraising is more crucial than it ever has been.

Please contact them on friendsofhungerfordprimary@outlook.com if you would like to be involved.




At the end of each term you will be receiving an update on your child’s attendance to date.

We do realise that some absences will be due to long periods of illness, and some will be due to being taken out of school to go on holiday. The information you will receive will not explain the absences but just give you the latest percentage attendance.

For your guidance we aim for 95% attendance over the whole year.
