At the end of September Hunningley Primary School ran a Macmillan coffee morning to raise money for the fantastic organisation which helps to fight the battle against cancer. Here is some information about Macmillan from their website:
There are currently 2 million people living with cancer in the UK. By 2030 there will be 4 million. We want to make sure we’re there for all of them.
One in three of us will get cancer and for most it will be the toughest thing we ever face. When you’re facing the toughest fight of your life, you need a team of inspiring people in your corner with you.
That’s who we are. We provide medical, emotional, practical and financial support and we push for a better cancer care system. We’re the team that gives you the strength and energy to face the fight and get through it.

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the Acting Head of Hunningley Primary and would like to welcome you back to a brand new school year. As many of you know, I have been lucky enough to work within school for the last three years and it is a pleasure to be able to take on this new role.
It has been a busy summer holiday for the team at Hunningley. We have had a school full of builders, again, which has meant there has been lots and lots of mess. However, we now have an updated KS2 corridor with new ceilings, bright new lights and a new heating system ready for winter.
Everyone in school has been working hard to make sure that the classrooms are welcoming and modern for all of you as learners. Every classroom has new chairs and we are excitedly awaiting the slightly delayed delivery of new tables to give our classrooms a fresh new look. We want all our children to enjoy learning in these spaces.
Mr Bowley worked hard to create a school that we can all be proud of and although there will be a lot of changes over the next few months, as the school moves forward into its next phase, myself and all the staff want to assure you, that we will continue to build on all the good foundations already in place.
I am an open and trusting person; I have high expectations of everyone I work with and will expect great things from each and every one of you. I want to strengthen the positive relationship Hunningley has between school and the local community and over the next few weeks I’ll be telling you how you can get involved in school life and help your child to be become an effective learner. The School Blog will be just one way you can find out more and see what is happening in school.
Some changes that are already in place for the new school year are:-
Assembly will now start at 9am. Please make that extra effort to help your children to arrive on time, so that they don’t have to walk into the hall late. This also means the schools doors will shut just before 9am. Please can I ask that after this initial settling in period can all parents leave children at the door so teachers can get children quickly into class.
Your child will be receiving 2 hours of P.E. therefore can I remind parents that children need a full P.E kit in school all week. KS2 children will be outside throughout the year, so trainers and warm P.E clothes are necessary.
Breakfast club will be every morning and is still a bargain 50p!
We have a new member of staff joining our KS1 team, we’d like to welcome Miss Kirkland who is replacing Mr Lomas at school.
Just a few reminders so that we’re all ready to start our new year as organised as we can be:-
KS1 children are reminded that indoor shoes (pumps) are worn, (please remember slippers are not safe for school use).
As our school is looking so much smarter I’m hoping our children can also all try to wear their smart uniforms, please look out for the uniform display in our entrance.
I am looking forward to meeting many more of you this term and working with you to support your child’s learning. If we can support you in any way at all this year, do not hesitate to contact the school office to make an appointment.
