Friday, 12th December

We end the penultimate week of the Autumn Term with the choir making their West End debut and hopefully featuring on tonight's evening news. What a great opportunity for them to perform in public! Indeed, throughout the school children are getting ready to act, dance and sing to an audience as they work hard rehearsing for the end of term performances. We look forward to welcoming friends and family next Tuesday and Wednesday, Full details are in this week's newsletter.

Thanks to everyone who supported last week's Christmas Fair - we raised over £600 and lots of festive fun was had.

Have a good weekend, keep wrapped up warm and see you on Monday.

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.
