We are a County controlled (Trafford LEA) co- educational school for pupils in the age range 3 to 11 years. Head Teacher: Mr Clive Searle
News on the day: the whole school enjoyed a great day filled with fun, fitness and fund raising! With over £1100 taken today and many more pledges of support to arrive, we look certain to be sending a massive cheque to Sport Relief.
News after the event: thank you for your amazing generosity. The sponsorship money kept rolling in for days after the event and eventually we raised the grand total of over £3,000. We all ran a mile (Mr Searle included) and felt a lot healthier for doing so! It really does show what we can do when we all put our minds and bodies to it!
In the last week of Spring Term, our violinists and cellists performed for their parents and most of the school. Here we see all the musicians together looking fantastic!
The children performed individually and in pairs with our music teacher, Helen Smith. Each week Helen works with our children developing their skills and each term, the children perform to a very high standard. They take grades and all look forward to the challenge that music affords.
After school can be a very busy time here at Worthington. Tuesdays are a typical day with scores of children taking part in after school activities that enhance and enrich our in-school curriculum offer.
Choir Club is only one of the activities on offer to our children. Our Change 4 Life Club attracts all ages and here children cook, play and make together.
In our ICT Suite we host our Stop-Go Animation Club where children produce their own animated short films.
Tricks and Flicks Football Club and ‘School’s Out’ complete our Tuesday offer.
Christmas 2013 saw the revival of PEPAIDS’ Great Big Christmas Card, which posed with some Great Big Celebrities, including Dame Helen Mirren, Ellie Goulding and Darcey Bussell, in a bid to help PEPAIDS raise cash for their Growing Futures project! In 2014 they want to run 14 camps for orphans and vulnerable children in Zambia and so we thought we’d join in to help raise some much needed money!
Mrs Allen (PEPAIDS founder) came to school before Christmas to introduce her idea. In return for any donation to PEPAIDS, our pictures would be entered into the Great Big Christmas Card Competition. They were looking for the funniest and most creative poses with a Christmas Card and the prizes (if we won), were very kindly donated by M&S, Legoland Discovery Centre and SeaLife Manchester.
The celebrity judge Katie Piper, has now picked the winners and guess what – our Year 3 class (dressed as pirates) have won a day out to Sealife Manchester!
Below you can see our other entries – I think you’ll agree that our children came up with some wonderful ideas!
The school management is sorry we have not kept you up to date with progress these last few months – we’ve been rather busy getting the new school up and running. All the hard work has been worth it and we’ve been left with the most amazing building so fit for purpose.
The interior is light and spacious with a wide and tall central spine. We have acoustic panels at high level to reduce echo and beautiful work already on walls. In the roof we have fans that open to feed fresh air into the building. The building allows us to be so flexible with what we do and where we do it. The hall is magnificent and brings all the best of the new with the best of the old.
As you can see from the photograph, we were able to place the stained glass window from the old school exactly where it once stood – at the gable end wall of our hall. It has been refurbished and fitted to take pride of place.In the New Year, we will host an official opening ceremony but because there is still much landscaping work to be done an exact date has not been chosen yet.
