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
Pupils are not permitted to have mobile phones in school. Any year 6 pupils, who are walking to or from school without an adult, can bring a phone into school, however it must be handed into the office for safe-keeping at the start of the day and collected again once school has finished. The phones should not be used on the school premises which includes the playground before and after school.
Any phones being mis-used will be confiscated.
We have provisionally booked the Year 6 residential trip for 17th – 21st September 2018 at PGL Liddington. This is an amazing experience for pupils to spend a week away doing outdoor and adventurous activities. Check out the website for more details http://www.pgl.co.uk/en-gb/adventure-holidays/centres/liddington#
Letters have been sent out and an information meeting took place after school yesterday. Any further questions should be directed to the office.
You are reminded that Year 5 pupils who would like to secure a place should return the reply slip and pay a £50 deposit by Friday 20th October.
The cost of the trip is based on the number of children attending and will be approximately £295. All parents are offered payment by instalments. Please see Mrs Brace if you need to discuss costs. Unfortunately we are unable to take any pupils for whom full payment has not been received.
We are already four weeks into our term and it’s been busy!
Year 5 have launched their history topic with a bang: wars, Olympics, the stars and a fire breathing dragon. The children also witnessed a real-life sacrifice – of a cabbage!!
It has been great to see the children fully engaged in their learning and we are already seeing some fabulous home learning.
Later this half term, we will invite you in to experience our Living History morning where the children will take over the classroom and turn them into museum galleries. More details to follow.
Welcome back to Yr. 5. We hope you all had a lovely Easter Break and are raring to go for the summer term.
This term’s focus will be geography and in our English lessons, children will be continuing to learn about non-chronological reports by researching and writing about Australia. This will also link to learning about Aboriginal cave paintings in art lessons.
The last week of half-term will be dedicated to fieldwork where children will learn about geography in the local area with a focus on rivers – more details about this week to follow.
We are looking forward to a great last term.
Year 5 team
