We ended the penultimate week of Autumn 1 term
with a great assembly by Y3 all about the Amazon rainforest.

We hope everyone managed to get to Parents' Evenings this week; if you missed this opportunity to discuss how your child is settling in and the next steps in their learning, please contact the class teacher to make an
appointment at a mutually convenient time.

If you want to order your designer Christmas cards (created by your children) please complete your orders sent home today and return with payment by Wed 22nd October.

A reminder to check lost property next week for anything your child might have mislaid.

Have a great weekend.

Year 6 out and about admiring the Tall Ships

Greenwich, of course! We like to get out and about at Meridian and make the most of all the fantastic learning opportunities on our doorstep! Y6 ventured to the river to admire the Tall Ships which took up their moorings from 4th -9th September. Junior classes also got a chance to bid them farewell as they sailed down the Thames.

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.

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.
