The Mead is a three-form entry infant school. There are three classes of 30 children in each Year Group, making nine classes in total. The Mead also has a Nursery for 65 children. We are able to offer 26 morning and 39 all day places. We also have a Hearing Impaired Unit for the deaf children.
The school is housed in one building with two playgrounds. We share a large playing field with a junior school on an adjoining site. In September 2006, the school opened a ‘state-of-the-art’ Foundation Stage wing for children aged 3-5 years. This has a Nursery, three Reception Classes and two outdoor areas which are successfully used as extensions of our Reception Classrooms. This building also has a Community Room and a specialist room for the teaching of the deaf.
The Key Stage 1 building has classrooms for children aged 5-7. It has an attractive well-stocked library, and a hall with a range of gym equipment. All the classrooms have acoustic ceilings and are carpeted, giving us good conditions for listening and learning.
The Mead is a popular school, respected by parents in the local community.
