Dear Parents and Carers,
Happy New Year to all our families! 2023 at Wigmore has started on a positive note. The children have returned to the classrooms very well – there is real sense of hard work, commitment and good behaviour for learning permeating from the classrooms.
Some great successes in the sporting arena and some interesting trips this week as well. Thank you to the adults who have organised these opportunities for the children and for providing consistent high quality learning opportunities for the children in the classroom on a daily basis.

ATTEND TO ACHIEVE!
At Wigmore we have to aim to be here every day! Excellent attendance is 97% or above. There are strong links between good attendance and good progress in school, both academically and socially. We want to be the best we can possibly be and reach our school target of 97%. We have to make a concerted effort in order to improve attendance and punctuality.
Every minute of every lesson counts!
Be in to win!
Be on time and in school every day!
