Nurture Aspiration Inclusion


Friday, 24th February 2017

Welcome to Spring Term 2. There's lots going on from now until the end of March including our Annual Arts Festival which this year will be inspired by Peter Pan.

The school photographers will be in school on Wednesday 1st March - any family groups with siblings NOT attending Meridian can come along for their group photo before school. Please come to school for 8.30am. All other individual, family and class photos will be taken during the school day.

It's World Book Day next Thursday 2nd March - please check the newsletter for all the activities going on to support the 20th year of this literary event. Don't forget to send your extreme reading photos to by Wednesday 1st. Come to school dressed as your favourite book character on Thursday too. Please bring in £1 donation for Book Aid International.

We look forward to Reception's class assembly which takes place next Friday, 3rd March at 9.30am.

Have a great weekend and see you on Monday.

Nursery places available now

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.
