Nurture Aspiration Inclusion


Friday, 17th April

It really felt like the Summer Term had well and truly arrived with the glorious sunshine this week. Perfect weather for “Surviving and Thriving” which is our whole school theme for the next 13 weeks. There will be plenty of creative learning opportunities and classes are looking forward to all the trips we have planned. Next week, we welcome a former Paralympian, Andy Barrow who will be talking to KS2 classes about wellbeing and teamwork. Please check the newsletter for the latest news and key dates coming up.

A reminder that our inspiring Arts Festival exhibition remains on display if you haven't yet had a chance to admire all the sensational work.

Clubs start again next week and most places have been confirmed. Reception, Y1 & Y2 letters will be sent home on Monday but if anyone signed up for KS1 Drama Club please check with the office on Monday morning.

Have a great weekend and enjoy the fresh air!

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.
