Nurture Aspiration Inclusion


Friday, 9th December

It has been a jam-packed week following on from our very productive Enterprise Week.

Thank you to all the children for their hard work and creative efforts —it was great to see all the products being snapped up by eager shoppers at last Friday’s Christmas Fair. All the Enterprise stalls raised a fabulous £912. Congratulations to Year 5 who were the most enterprising with a total profit of £183.50 from their Scentsations Stall.

The school choir got the chance to perform in front of friends and family on Monday at the Chapel of the Old Royal Naval College on Monday. It was a treat to hear them sing in such a magnificient setting.

Christmas dinner was once again delicious - thank you to Donna and her team for such a splendid spread.

Classes enjoyed their theatre trips this week - the younger children seemed to enjoy the part in the Snail and the Whale which involved them getting squirted with water. Audience participation at its dampest!

Have a great weekend. See you on Monday.

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.

WOW! We raised £879.04 for Children in Need 2016

Well done to everyone for helping us to raise a fantastic amount for this year's Children in Need.

For all those who read with children and sponsored them, who dressed in spots and who baked, bought and ate cakes, we would like to say a HUGE thank you.

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.
