Welcome to The Meadow Community Primary School and Pre-School. We hope you find all the information you are looking for and we hope that we have given you an insight into all the things that happen at our wonderful school.
The Meadow Community Primary School and Pre-School has been established since 1972, catering for approximately 420 boys and girls, aged 4 to 11. The school is very fortunate to be set in beautiful grounds with plenty of open space for the children. All of our classes are well resourced so that we can provide a high quality curriculum for all of our pupils. In 2016, The Meadow Community Primary School and Pre-School joined The Symphony Learning Trust and we therefore benefit from being part of a multi-academy trust by working collaboratively with the other schools to share best practice and resources.
Our curriculum is designed to engage, inspire and challenge our children. We acknowledge and build on children’s prior experiences and promote resilience to allow them to become the ‘best versions’ of themselves. Our immersive curriculum broadly follows the National Curriculum but personalises learning experiences linked to our demographic of pupils. Through quality first teaching and enrichment opportunities we aim to encourage a thirst for learning which will last a lifetime. The ability to learn is underpinned by the teaching of basic skills, knowledge, concepts and values which will prepare our learners for success in the real world. Regular reflection of the curriculum ensures that it is current, relevant and meets the needs of the ever changing world.
Route to Resilience
Our intent is that children leave The Meadow being the best version of themselves that they can possibly be. We want our children to become confident, well rounded young citizens who are prepared for the next stage of their education and lives. We embed ‘route to resilience’ in our school community by encouraging our children to develop many different characteristics. We help children to recognise which characteristics they already show and those to develop, guiding them on how to do this. Our ‘route to resilience’ is evident in the language we use, the skills we teach, the homework we set and the expectations and values that we promote as a school.
