Nurture Aspiration Inclusion


Friday, 2nd December

What an Enterprising Week we have had at Meridian. Designers, makers and promoters have been hard at work and we look forward to seeing all their products on sale this afternoon. Well done everyone!

Christmas is coming...

We hope everyone has a great time at our Christmas Fair from 3.30-5.30 this afternoon.

Thanks to our Foundation Stage classes, Darryl and the two Garys, Our Advent Window "Santa's Surprise" is open.

The school choir will be performing in public again in the Chapel of the Old Royal Naval College on Monday. If you are free, why not pop along at 1pm to hear them singing as part of the local cluster of schools group choir.

We are looking forward to the delicious dinner that Donna, Rose, Veronica and Rebecca will be preparing and serving up next Wednesday, 7th December.

Most of our classes will be out at the theatre next week to see ‘A Christmas Carol‘’ or ‘The Snail and the Whale’. Details about these experiences were sent home to families this week. Please make sure consent forms are returned by Monday, 5th December.

Have a great weekend. See you on Monday.

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.

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.

WOW! We raised £879.04 for Children in Need 2016

Well done to everyone for helping us to raise a fantastic amount for this year's Children in Need.

For all those who read with children and sponsored them, who dressed in spots and who baked, bought and ate cakes, we would like to say a HUGE thank you.

At Meridian we are committed to...

• the aims and values of our school and to demonstrating these values in our everyday practice;
• a child-centred approach;
• high expectations for all children and staff; • identifying and overcoming barriers to learning;
• making every lesson count;
• knowing all our children and families and working in partnership with them and the local community;
• collaborative working and learning.
