Despite being unable to hold our lovely Christmas Fayre in the usual way due to the current pandemic, your wonderful PTA are very pleased to let you know that they will still be holding a Christmas raffle, offering you a chance to win a wonderful festive treat. Through some very kind donations, we have managed to secure a lovely Christmas hamper, containing lots of food and drink goodies, and also a number of other prizes.
For further details of the raffle, and other ways you can support from home, please click here to visit our PTA page.
On Friday 13th November, we raised a brilliant £155.85 for the wonderful 'Children in Need' organisation.
Children came to school in non-uniform, with lots of spotty, or Pudsey-inspired clothing brightening up each classroom. Children also enjoyed completing Pudsey-themed work.
Thank you to everyone for your kind support, especially at such a challenging time.

In school, we celebrated the very special event of Armistice Day through buying poppies, completing activities remembering the brave men, women and animals who were lost in conflict, and talking about what the day means and why we mark it.
Through our online assembly, we shared prayers, read a poem, showed our learning about Armistice Day, and before we observed two minutes of silence, Sofia, Callum and Maggie read out the names of the brave men from our village who fell due to World War I.
Despite these unusual times, it is important that as a school, community, Parish and nation, we always remember the fallen, and also see that we can (and will) come through times of adversity.
Many, many thanks to all who were able to donate goods towards our Harvest this year.
The food will help lots of local families here in our community and other local families through the Food Bank. This help is especially important during this time of uncertainty and as Christmas approaches.
A lovely gesture which will make a difference to the lives of others.
...love God, love one another.
The Visyon organisation are inviting parents/carers to a regular break each week during the school term, to talk about the important issues that affect children, family and life. This term, the meetings will provide the chance to talk about the importance of the relationships between parents/carers and children. Sessions will focus on: priorities, respect, role models, communication, emotions, self-esteem, and quality time.
Sessions for families in Cheadle take place at 10.00am on Fridays.
All you need is you, a connection to Zoom…and a brew! It’s totally up to you whether you just listen or join in the conversation with people in your community.
If you are interested in joining us, please book a place via Eventbrite, using the links below:

As the time for Christmas shopping is fast approaching we would like to share with you a way that you can raise funds for your PTA, here at St Werburgh's C.E. Primary School.
As many parents/carers will already be aware, we have had an 'easy fundraising' account for a number of years and last year, we launched our Amazon Smile account too. For new parents/carers, we wanted to explain that this is a way of raising money for charities without having to spend anything extra from your own pocket.
For Amazon Smile: if you log onto Amazon through the Amazon Smile app and choose St Werburgh’s PTA Kingsley as your chosen charity, they will then donate 0.5% of whatever you spend on Amazon directly to our PTA.
For Easy Fundraising: if you use the 'Easy Fundraising' app and then log onto a variety of websites through easy fundraising eg Ebay, Argos, M&S, Debenhams, Go Compare etc (there are 100+ participants) and choose St Werburghs PTA Kingsley as your chosen charity, again we will receive a percentage of what you spend with no extra cost to yourselves.
By parents/carers shopping via the 'Easy Fundraising' app for our PTA charity we have so far raised £422.53 and £22.59 through Amazon Smile. It is a simple way to raise money with no cost to us as parents/carers.
We continue to be so grateful for your support and efforts towards raising money for our children here at St Werburgh's C.E. Primary.
A range of brilliant new play equipment has arrived in Kingsley following many months of bid-writing, quote-gathering, and hours-upon-hours of organisation from Mrs Corby, Mrs Hughes and Miss Wainwright, a thoughtful group of our parents. It is our pleasure to share with you photographs and a few words from this kind trio.
The Kingsley Venture Valley Project Team is delighted to finally announce your new play area is finished and ready to be played on! It has passed its safety inspection and the security fence has come down. Thank you very much for your patience while the work has been in progress. We hope you love it as much as we do!
We would like to say a big thank you for the support and encouragement the school gave the project with the surveys and newsletter updates. These were very helpful and as they will see the equipment and facilities they expressed interest in have been included in the design.
We hope the children will enjoy the swinging, sliding, climbing, spinning and zipping and have many hours of fun and adventures here.
Thank you very, very much for your spectacular efforts to benefit our community and we are sure that the children will really, really enjoy playing safely on this fabulous equipment.
...love one another.
It was wonderful to come together in prayer today as we celebrated Harvest in school.
Led by Rev Sue, our 'virtual' Service using video conferencing was a special opportunity to share prayers from each classroom and a parable, and to give thanks at this special time of year. Classes produced some very creative artwork and each also wrote a prayer of thanks.
The creativity within God's world brought us seedlings and artwork featuring a mouse, a cow, a pizza (and the miles the ingredients have to travel) and a Harvest wreath.
Many thanks to Mr Ratcliffe (our Link Trustee) for joining us from home too.
A happy display full of the children's artwork has been added to the Worship Council noticeboard and is pictured here.
...love God, love one another.
Harvest Festival in Church
Our wonderful church of St. Werburgh’s is delighted to be hosting a Harvest Festival Celebration this weekend. Church will be open from 1.00-4.00pm on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th October, with a special Service at 11.00am on Sunday.
There will also be a display of lovely pieces of artwork created by local artists.
Any donations of non-perishable food may be brought along, which will be stored and then passed with thanks to the Women’s Refuge.
A huge 'thank you' for your support of the recent MacMillan Coffee Morning Non-Uniform Day here in school.
By coming into school in non-uniform, we were able to raise a brilliant £190 for this important charity - which is particularly special as we are in a time of such uncertainty.
Thank you all for your kindness and thoughtfulness.
...love one another.
