Friday 23rd January

Despite the chill in the air, children are getting out and about with more trips planned over the coming weeks. Y6 enjoyed their trip to the Globe Theatre on Tuesday and the opportunity to perform on this famous stage. Next week there are more visits to local places of historical interest including the Royal Observatory, National Maritime Museum and the Queen's House with Y3 & Y4 heading to the Victoria & Albert Museum. No doubt there will be lots to report back on in time for next week's newsletter.

Please check the latest newsletter for trip dates especially if packed lunch is required.

Hope everyone has a great weekend - see you all 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 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.
