NURSERY UPDATE 15th January 2021
There has been updated guidance from the Government which was issued to local authorities yesterday, Thursday 14th January, and shared with schools today, clarifying the actions to be taken by school’s Nursery provision in light of the current Covid-19 pandemic.
The Government in their update have stated that ‘Early years (NURSERY) provision should remain open and continue to allow all children to attend full time or their usual timetable hours. This includes early years registered nurseries and childminders, maintained nursery schools, as well as nursery classes in schools and other pre-reception provision on school sites. This is the default position for all areas irrespective of national lockdown restrictions.
The Government guidance is also that parents and carers should keep their children at home if they can. So although you can send your child to the Nursery, it is vital that you only send them on the days when you have no child-care provision at home. Your child’s place in the nursery is secure whether they attend or stay at home.
Please follow government advice: Stay Home, Save Lives, Protect the NHS.
To all parents and carers of Nursery children at Worsley Mesnes Community Primary School; if you want to access your regular or a reduced nursery pattern at this time then please contact the school office to discuss this on 01942776457 or email@example.com.
In all other school years, the Government guidance remains in place that only children of keyworker parents and vulnerable children should attend school and only if there is no one at home to care for the children.
I’m David Worthington, Headteacher at Worsley Mesnes Community Primary School and I would like to welcome you.
The ethos of our school is our "Worsley Mesnes Way". This interweaves our school values - respect, excellence, inspiration, determination, equality, friendship and courage with high expectations of behaviour at all times within a climate of trust across the whole school community. This is apparent as soon as you enter our school and is the foundation of our school motto
"We Learn Like Champions".
We recognise the importance of the role of our school in the community; in creating a partnership between children, parents, staff and the local residents. This was recognised nationally by the award of the Inclusion Quality Mark in June 2017.
Our website and our prospectus will give you some factual information about our school. We believe that Worsley Mesnes Community Primary School is a special place where learning is memorable and basic skills are weaved through experiences and challenges inside and outside of the classroom.
I hope that you find the site both interesting and informative and that it gives you a true flavour of our school whether you are a child, a parent, a member of staff, a governor or indeed, a visitor.
We – the staff, children and governors – are proud of our school community and all that we achieve! If you have not visited, but would like to come and see us ‘at work’, please do not hesitate to make an appointment;
I would love to show you around our school.

- All of our school community matter and are included in a welcoming, happy and safe environment.
