Nurture Aspiration Inclusion


Thursday, 28th April

Congratulations to all our swimmers in Y3-Y6. They swam with enthusiasm and rose to their own individual challenges throughout the 2016 Swimathon. Hopefully they have also raised plenty of money along the way.

If you haven't had a chance to see the children's work and creativity, the 2016 Arts Festival exhibition is still up and waiting to be admired. Please come along to the Middle Hall.

A reminder that school is closed on Monday for the Bank Holiday and also on Thursday (except for children in Y6).

Have a great long weekend and see you on Tuesday.

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.

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.
