This week’s news

Canopy
As promised, we now have a canopy covering the entrance doors on the main side of the playground. The builders were in all of last week, ensuring the work was complete ready for this half term.
The canopy means that we can ensure that the children can play outside, regardless of the weather. Please ensure that during these cold months, the children are sent to school wearing a suitable coat as it has been very cold today.

Parents evening
We had an overwhelming turnout at parent’s evening and the figures are looking like it is our best attended yet. If for any reason you didn’t make it to a meeting, please see your child’s teacher to arrange an alternative time to meet.

Happy news!
We are delighted to announce, that Mrs Chatterton is expecting a child and she is delighted to announce that it is another little boy. We wish her all the best with her pregnancy and we will do all that we can to ensure it is a pleasant experience for her. In her absence, Year 6 will continue to be taught by Mrs Verity Mrs Parker-Stone.

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.
