Nurture Aspiration Inclusion

Lost and Found


Friday 11th January 2019

Happy New Year and welcome to 2019! We hope you all enjoyed the Christmas break. A special hello to all our new families whose children are starting in Nursery over the next week.

Our school is in a perfect location for this term’s very royal whole school history topic and we will be making the most of the fantastic learning opportunities on our doorstep. All classes will be learning about Kings and Queens from different eras: our current Queen Elizabeth II, Elizabeth I, Tudor London, Victorian innovation and the legacy of the Great Exhibition. More information can be found in this week's newsletter.

Thanks to everyone who completed a Spring Term Club registration form by the deadline. Places for this term’s clubs were confirmed in a letter given to children today. Late forms may not yet have been processed. Clubs and music tuition start up again from Monday, 14th January.

Please note the information relating to punctuality in today's newsletter and the new arrangements children arriving late at school from Monday 14th January.

Have a great weekend and see you on Monday.

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 resilient, independent lifelong learners;
• to be the best they can be, whoever they are and whatever their starting points or circumstances.

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 of 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.
