Hello and a warm welcome to our website which gives you a flavour of life at Meridian. It is designed to provide you with the latest news and updates and you can access it anytime, anywhere! It's also a fantastic way to celebrate our achievements and show people all the great things we do at our school.

Nestled between Greenwich Park and the River Thames, Meridian is uniquely placed to make learning exciting, fun and relevant. The Meridian Line runs through the very centre of our school and from our new rooftop Arts studio children and staff have the privilege of teaching and learning in view of Greenwich’s World Heritage site.

We offer a creative and inclusive environment which values individuality and celebrates differences. Our children come from richly diverse backgrounds with over 20 languages spoken and our intake is complemented by a designated special provision for deaf children. We have high aspirations for each and every child and believe positive relationships and a caring ethos are the basis for great learning. We seek to nurture a real sense of community in our one-form-entry school and get to know our children well.

Enjoy looking around our site and finding out more about us.

Best wishes, Jo Graham, Headteacher

We have been thinking about two of our whole school values this week during our assemblies - Equality and Aspiration. In light of the general election, children have been considering how they can all make a difference to each other and to the schools. They have explored democracy and how we use democractic principles in school.
See the newsletter for all the democracy in action at Meridian.

Please take note of the dates for your diary section as we have had to change a few key dates including Sports Day.

Whatever you are doing for the half term break, have fun, take care and see you all on Monday 1st June.

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.
