Monday, 1st September 2014

After the summer break, staff were back in school today getting ready to start the 2014-15 school year.
We have another INSET day for staff tomorrow before we welcome back children on Wednesday, 3rd September (except Nursery children who return on Friday, 5th September).

We look forward to seeing you all in the playground at 8.55am ready to begin another great year at Meridian.

2014 Champions

We made the news - see Pg 22

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.

Congratulations to Team Meridian: Miriam, Lulu, Rasika, Katelyn, Ryan, Saskia, Milo, Rosie, Jude, Daniel, Ally and Gabriel who won the Small Schools category in the 2014 Greenwich Primary Schools Swimming Championships and came third place overall. Thanks to everyone involved for helping the team fulfil their potential. A very proud moment for us all!

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.
