We believe that every student at Wormley Primary should have the opportunity to achieve the best possible start to life. We are committed to breaking down any barriers to outstanding achievement and attainment.
The pupil premium is a sum of money given to schools each year by the Government to raise the achievement of disadvantaged pupils from reception to year 11. Funding is for children from low-income families who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years (FSM ‘Ever 6’) or are looked after children or from families with parents in the Armed Forces. If you think your child may be eligible for this additional funding then let us know or visit:
Years 3 – 6: Use the above link to check eligibility and apply for pupil premium
Reception, Year 1 or 2: Although your child will automatically receive universal free school meals, you should still register on the above link as, if eligible, the school could get extra money to support your child
Pre-school & Nursery: Please speak to the school directly
Welcome to this very exciting half term!
This Friday is pyjama day for Children in Need- children come dressed in their pyjamas and donate a £1 to the charity. Please note that this is our Forest school day so something warm either under or over their PJ’s will be needed.
The children have started to practice songs and actions in preparation for our Nativity performances on Monday 11th December.
AM children’s performance starts at 10 am
PM children’s performance starts at 2 pm
Each family will be given two tickets for their child/children’s performance.
The performances will be filmed on Wednesday 6th December, during the dress rehearsals.
We will be walking to church on 13th December for our Christmas service and will require parents to help with the walk.
A letter will follow soon, so please come along and join us.
Please provide family photos for the children’s belonging wall…thank you to those who have, the children are enjoying sharing and talking about them.
Book bags- children may take a book home from the Nursery to share with you weekly- days are on the noticeboard outside the Nursery door.
The Nursery Team
We would like to welcome all of our children and their families to the Nursery and were pleased to meet so many of you on the ‘stay and play’ settling in sessions. With your support the majority of the children are now well settled and are busy each day exploring the indoors and outdoors environments.
As we spend much of our day outdoors we would like to remind you that your child needs a pair of named wellington boots, to be kept at school. We go out and learn in all weathers, the wetter the better! Boots are also needed for our Forest school sessions starting soon on Friday’s.
It was great to see so many of you sharing in our Harvest celebration and thank you again for the many donations for the food bank.
Soon we will be adding you to your child’s online journal so please look out for a ‘Tapestry’ link in your emails.
We look forward to sharing your child’s learning journal with you in this way.
We hope you had a lovely Easter break! And ready for new challenges. We are looking forward to enjoying the sunshine and learning new skills, this will mean that we will be outside a lot, therefore please provide a sun hat and water bottle.
We will be working closely with the children with their new transition into Reception, visiting and engaging with the Reception Teachers and their new environment.
We have some exciting events coming up with Sports Day and the Summer Concert to name a few.
Please keep us up to date with the children’s home learning using Tapestry https://eylj.org/login/
Thank you for your continued support
