Behaviour

The school promotes respect, honesty and good relationships, so that people can work together in a supportive atmosphere with the common purpose of helping everyone to learn, to be creative, to grow emotionally and physically, and to be happy. We have set expectations for all staff and pupils at Longsight Community Primary School.

The school expects every member of the school community to behave in a considerate way towards others.


Attendance

Longsight Community Primary recognises that positive behaviour and good attendance are central to raising standards and pupil attainment.

For our children to gain the greatest benefit from their education it is vital that they attend regularly and be at school on time every day the school is open unless the reason for absence is unavoidable.

Home Learning

In our experience, children make greatest progress when they read with someone on a daily basis. By the time your child is in year 6, we recommend asking your child to read a chapter (either aloud or to themselves) and then explain to you what has happened in the story.

Make sure they have had a good night’s sleep, are clean and tidy with hair brushed, wearing the correct uniform and have had breakfast. Also, please ensure they have their glasses if necessary, and all they need for the day including Book Bag, homework, reading record/message book. At the end of the day, check their book bag for letters and have a look at their message book.

Dear parent and carers,

On Thursday, 6 June our wonderful friend and treasured colleague Mrs Sadia Ahmed passed away.

Sadia was the life and soul of our school and she leaves behind a huge hole in the heart of Longsight Community Primary. Sadia was an amazing teacher and her children are a testament to her determination that all our children achieved their potential.

She was a wonderfully kind, open-hearted friend whose sense of humour still make us smile now even while we are all grieving. I know she welcomed all parents with open arms and that you will all miss her as much as we will. Please talk to your children about Mrs Ahmed as I know they may have questions. A book of condolence will be open this week for you to share your messages and memories.

We are heart-broken for the life not yet lived, but grateful for the life she did live. Rest in peace our beloved friend.

Mrs Rukhsana Ahmed and all the staff and friends of Longsight Community Primary.
