Helpers Urgently Needed!!
Have you got a spare half an hour on a Monday or Thursday morning, around 10am?
We desperately need helpers to come into school and make toast for our children’s morning snack, if you can help, please contact the office.

Unify
Please remember, every Wednesday 8.30 – 8.55, Miss Ainscough will be in our Hippo Zone if you would like to pop in and join Unify. Come along and start saving, just putting a small amount each week into a bank account will soon mount up to a good saving. One of the most important things you can do is start a conversation with your child about money and the importance of savings. Let thing know how to save up for things that they really want, in addition illustrate how much their money can grow over time if they save. Let them bring in a little each week, for example 50p, and watch it grow!

Parents Evening - Wednesday 11th September

Attendance Matters
At Worsley Mesnes your children’s attendance is very important to us and we aim for every child to achieve 97+%. Having an excellent attendance will help give your child the best possible start in life and achieve to their full potential. This year if your child achieves 97+% attendance, they have the chance of winning a brand new scooter with helmet – all children achieving 97+% attendance will be entered into our prize draw at the end of the year. All children with 100% will take part in the activity, along with the class with the highest percentage over the year.
