Nurture Aspiration Inclusion


Friday 1st July

Well done to Y4 and Y5 for their fantastic music performance this week and thanks to all the parents/carers who were able to join us.

Team Meridian were in action in the pool tonight - well done to everyone involved!

A reminder that school will be closed to children on Tuesday 5th July due to a strike by the National Union of Teachers. School will reopen on Wednesday 6th July. Sports Day has been rescheduled and will now run on Tuesday 19th July.

We hope to see many of you tomorrow at the 2016 Summer Fair. It is inspired by this summer's Olympic and Paralympic Games - so come along from 12.00pm for some fun!

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 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.

Team Meridian Finalists 2016

Well done to to our aqua ambassadors who put in a great performance in the pool tonight (Friday 1st July). There were lots of fantastic races and individual medals won during the annual gala. Everyone contributed to the team effort and we came second in the Small Schools category (we narrowly missed winning with only 1 point in it!) The boys were placed third overall in the whole competiton.

A proud night for Team Meridian - congratulations everyone!

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.
