Nurture Aspiration Inclusion


Friday 13th September

Children have enjoyed their mini-topic, ‘Journeys Through Time’ and the opportunity to reflect on their own identify and the rich diversity of our community. See the newsletter for more details. A reminder that if you don't already receive the newsletter by email, please sign up using the link above. From next week the weekly newsletter will only be available through direct email or from here.

We hope that those who were able to come along found this week’s “Meet the teacher” sessions helpful. A reminder that Reception parents are invited to their session on Wednesday, 18th September at 5pm. Please note that as no crèche will be available, you are welcome to bring your children along.

To support the information being given out at these sessions, all curriculum newsletters will be on the website by the end of next week. The new “Meridian Mini Guide” is also now available on the school website. This is full of information about our curriculum and about key routines and policies so please do have a look through it.

Places for extra-curricular clubs for children in Y1-Y6 will be confirmed on Monday. Some clubs have been very popular and we have had to introduce waiting lists.

Have a great weekend and see you all 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 resilient, independent lifelong learners;
• to be the best they can be, whoever they are and whatever their starting points or circumstances.

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 of 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.
