Nurture Aspiration Inclusion


Friday, 8th December

What an incredibly productive first week of December we have had. Last Friday's Christmas Fair raised a fantastic £1600 with the children's Enterprise stalls making a total profit of £1075. Well done to all the classes and contgratulations to Y5 who were the most enterprising class with their individual profit of £276.50. Thank you and a massive well done to all our parents/carers, family members, children and staff who helped to organise and run another successful Christmas Fair.

Other highlights from this week include the choir performing in the chapel of the Old Royal Naval College, our whole school Christmas dinner, a visit from Father Christmas and being no. 7 on the Advent Window trail.

Children are busy preparing for their Christmas performances. Please check the newsletter for dates and times for your child's class. We hope to see you there.

Have a great weekend!

At Meridian we recognise that ...

• all children are unique and special;
• we make a difference to children’s lives;
• children have one chance at a Primary School education;
• children cannot learn unless they are happy, safe and secure;
• everyone is important to the success of the team.

At Meridian we aim for all our children ...

• to be happy, safe and secure;
• to enjoy school and enjoy learning;
• including those who are deaf, dyslexic or have other learning differences, to become successful, independent learners;
• to be the best they can be, whoever they are and whatever their starting points or circumstances.

We greatly value the arts and sports and it is our ambition that every child should leave our school with a skill or talent they can enjoy and succeed in and which will be the foundation for sustained self-esteem as they grow older.
