We were delighted to welcome Miss Ainsworth (School Leader at our sister school, The Valley) into school to tell us about the work she does with the Girlguiding organisation to support a school in Mombassa, Kenya.
Miss Ainsworth also told us about how our friends at The Valley sponsor a child's education at the Kididima Primary School which means that a young girl, called Sauma, can receive an education.
Inspired by this, St. Werburgh's C.E. (A) Primary have decided to also sponsor a year's education for a child at the school. To do so, Miss Keeling has organised a non-uniform day on Friday 15th March to raise the £120 needed to fund a whole year's worth of education and to positively change a child's life. Any money raised beyond this amount will be donated to the wonderful Comic Relief charity.
...love one another.
A playground area for all to enjoy.
We are proud that a group of parents from the St. Werburgh's C.E. (A) Primary School family are planning an exciting bid for funding towards equipment for the playground area in our community of Kingsley.
Many thanks to those who were able to offer suggestions.
St. Werburgh’s C.E. (A) Primary are proud to support Children’s Mental Health Week 2019.
In school we will be holding sessions on Mindfulness and yoga, talking to the children about the importance of staying active and healthy and also staging assemblies and activities in class to support children with ways to stay calm and relax. This works well with the number of sports, dance and games sessions to help children to be ‘Healthy: Inside and Out’.

Each of the five sister schools within TMPF were delighted to join friends from Cheadle Primary School and participate in a basketball event staged by The Cheadle Academy (TCA).
Four boys and four girls took part in the celebration of sport, which began with a skills session and concluded with an exciting tournament.
Throughout the morning, every child had a chance to develop their understanding of the game and play competitively against one another. It was a great opportunity to make friends and try a new sport… whilst maybe beginning a journey towards the NBA!
The closely-fought event was eventually won by St. Werburgh’s C.E. (A) Primary. Congratulations to all who took part and to Mrs Evans and the wonderful Sports Leaders from TCA who led the event and doubled up as coaches.
A huge 'well done' to our little sparkling Christmas stars for shining so brightly in our EYFS/ KS1 Nativity, 'The INN-spectors', this week.
Thank you to the cast, staff team, our wonderful Y6 presenters and helpers and to you, the family members and audience, for playing a big part in making the two shows so very special.
We hope the shows made you feel proud, happy...and all Christmas-sy!
We were thrilled to welcome Stoke City FC into school to deliver a very special assembly.
All children were given the opportunity to buy tickets for an upcoming Championship match at a very discounted rate and sit with their friends in the new corner stand at the Bet365 Stadium.
Our wonderful Year 2 children received some hugely special gifts as part of the club's 'City 7s' scheme. Each child in Year 2 received a certificate, a bag, a free child and a free adult's match ticket and even a Stoke City shirt of their very own...courtesy of the club.
Thank you to our friends at Stoke City FC for their kindness!
Year 6 had a busy, fun-filled morning at Cheadle Fire Station, where they took part in lots of exciting workshops. The children learned all about fire safety and were given tips on how to keep themselves and others safe. As well as learning about fire safety, they also learned about road safety, mental health awareness, anti-social behaviour and how to perform CPR! The organisers, who were running the workshops, commented on how wonderful the children behaved and how knowledgeable they were.
St. Werburgh's C.E. (A) Primary School are delighted to welcome parents and carers with a child who is due to start school in September 2019 to join us for an Open Morning on Monday 19th November from 9.30-11.15am.

Pupils from St. Werburgh's C.E. (A) Primary School were honoured to lay a wreath at the cenotaph in Kingsley as an act of remembrance to mark the centenary of the end of World War I.
Members of the School Council and the Chairs of the Worship Council and Eco Council joined Parishioners, Rev. Sue and Mr Lucas from the Royal British Legion to pay respect on behalf of the entire school family.
The children spent time reading the monument to find out more about those from the village who sadly lost their lives in war and looking at the beacon which was lit by the Kingsley community on Armistice Day/ Remembrance Sunday.
In school, the remainder of the pupils and staff gathered together to listen to World War I poetry, say a prayer and impeccably observe a minute's silence in remembrance.
We Will Remember Them.
Members of the St. Werburgh's C.E. (A) Primary School Worship Council were delighted to join friends from their sister school, Dilhorne Endowed C.E. (A) Primary School and new friends from Hanley St. Luke's Primary, at a religious retreat in Dovedale, organised by the Diocese of Lichfield.
The group of eight boys and girls from St. Werburgh’s visited Dovedale House in Ilam for the 24 hour retreat and worked with staff from the Diocese of Lichfield, including the wonderful Bishop Geoff, to explore how they could bring a sense of the wonder and awe of God into the worship which the Council will plan and lead in school.
