Nurture Aspiration Inclusion


Friday, 22nd March 2019

Our 2019 Arts Festival is underway! This year children are being inspired by E. Nesbitt’s Five Children and It. Classes have been exploring the themes of the story through more drama workshops with Susanna Harding, visiting drama specialist, and will be creating their own stories linked to wishes. They will also be creating their own art installations from drawings based around story settings.

Thank you for the payments received via ParentPay and the office - please keep them coming in. See the newsletter for details of cash and cheque deadlines for this financial year.

A reminder about our trips to Tate Britain next week:
Tuesday 26th March – Nursery, Reception, Year 1 & Year 4
Thursday 28th March – Year 2, Year 3, Year 5 and Year 6

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.
