Nurture Aspiration Inclusion

Our second week of the 2017 Arts Festival has produced some fantastic work. Children are getting to know their characters as they prepare their letters and the textile wall hangings are evolving with lots of weaving, dying and sewing skills on display.

Don't forget to come and see the exhibition which opens next Thursday 30th March.

Thanks for all your support for this year's Red Nose Day. Thank you for buying the Red Noses, and for all the donations of cakes. We will let you know the total raised from today's cake sale next week.

Have a great weekend and see you on Monday.

P.S A reminder that the last day of the SpringTerm is next Friday, 31st March. School reopens for children (except Nursery) on Wednesday, 19th April. Nursery children return on Thursday 20th April.

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.
