This week’s news

Parent meetings
The meet the teacher sessions last week went very well, we had at least 75% of parents from each class attending.

This term, there will be a further chance to meet with your child’s teacher at Parent’s Evening, which is on Wednesday 17th and Thursday 18th October.

The purpose of these meetings is to discuss how your child has settled in and the targets they will be working on.

The appointments for Parent’s Evening will be going out through ParentMail. Please ensure you are signed up and using the app. If you need help with this, please speak to the office as a matter of urgency.

Trip cancellation
The Year 5/6 STEM trip to Manchester University has been postponed. As soon as a new date has been arranged, we will notify parents.

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.
