As we come to the end of a successful year I would like to take a moment to thank the staff for their hard work, commitment and support. The children have all achieved well and flourished, and we are all very proud of them.
Thank you to parents and carers for your support too, you play a crucial role in the success of the school. Whether it is volunteering or supporting your children's learning at home your involvement makes a remarkable difference.
We say a farewell to our wonderful year 2 children who will be moving on to new adventures. We have watched them grow into confident learners who are now ready for the next chapter in their educational journey. We wish them all the very best.
From all of us at the Mead we wish you a very happy and safe holiday and look forward to welcoming you back in September.
Down on the Farm!
Our Reception children had a fabulous day at Bocketts Farm, where they immersed themselves in the wonders of the natural world. From interacting with friendly farm animals to exploring their surroundings. Through these interactions, our children gained an understanding of farm life, the importance of animal care, and the origins of the food we consume. This trip also fostered a sense of responsibility and nurtured their empathy for living creatures.
Whole School Attendance currently stands at 94.3 %.
Attendance is strongly linked to how well pupils achieve; for this reason, the attendance of all pupils is closely monitored.
If we are concerned about your child's attendance, in the first instance we will send you a letter highlighting this to you.
Please remember that holidays are not authorised during term time, and you may be liable for a fine if the absence is 5 days or more with in a 3-month period.
The days do not need to be consecutive.
Year 2 Trip to the Mosque
At the Mead we want our children to grow up as global citizens appreciating the richness of our diverse world and celebrate the unique contributions that each culture brings. As part of this the year 2 children enjoyed a trip to the Mosque where they leaned about Muslim traditions and beliefs.
Scooters and Football
Please remember that scooting/cycling and football are not permitted in the playground before and after school. This is because the playground is very busy at these times and both adults and children could be accidently hurt.
Children are also not permitted to take the equipment out of the black storage boxes to play with after school.
Please help us keep our families safe in the playground.
A huge thank you to the Kerry Winter and PA who have done a fantastic job organising lots of events this year to raise money for the school. We know it takes a lot of time and hard work. It really does help the school to purchase things for the children which we would not be able to afford from our delegated budget.
World Music Day
The school celebrated World Music Day on Wednesday 21st June. We enjoyed an assembly where both a celo and clarinet player performed to the children. But the highlight of the day was when some of our children who play musical performed to us. They were brilliant!
We have noticed that there still parents who are parking on Cudas Close at drop off and pick up times. Please remember that there are parking restrictions during these times and parking is not permitted on either Cudas Close or Cuddington Avenue. Please help us keep our families safe
Year 2 Trip To Hampton Court
Our children from Year 2 had the opportunity to step back in time to the Tudor era during their visit to the magnificent Hampton Court. Through interactive activities, the children learnt about Henry VIII and his reign and the lives of the palaces inhabitants.
School of Rock!
We enjoyed a performance from the children who attend Rock Steady. They were brilliant - well done our budding rock stars.
The Mead Infant and Nursery School is committed fully to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children and young people and expects our school community to share this commitment. The health, safety and well-being of every child are our paramount concern. We listen to our pupils and take seriously what they tell us.
Everyone has a duty to keep children safe from abuse and neglect
If you are concerned about a child’s welfare whilst you are in school, please record your concern, and any observations or conversation heard, and report to one of the DSLs as soon as possible the same day. Do NOT conduct your own investigation. (Please refer to our website under safeguarding for information of whom the DSLs are)
If your concerns relate to the actions or behaviour of a member of staff (which could suggest that s/he is unsuitable to work with children) then you should report this to the Headteacher (or the Chair of Governors if the concern relates to the Headteacher) – who will consider what action to take.
If you are concerned about a child and it is outside of the school, it is important that you report your worries to the correct agency.
